November 21, 2010, 1:00 - 4:00 PM

Find out the untold story of this volunteer service organization whose beginnings in our community go back to the early 20th c. At the opening of their clubhouse in 1930 Mayor DeHart noted that the Woman’s Club was always at the forefront of progress in Maplewood. Their accomplishments have ranged from the purchase of a Grumman Hellcat Navy fighter plane dubbed “Miss Maplewood” in WWII to reading to the blind, helping the homeless and contributions to cultural and educational scholarships.
