Fallbrook Woman’s Club plans luncheon for new members

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Woman’s Club (FWC) will host a “Get Acquainted” luncheon on Tuesday, Aug. 23, at 11:30 a.m., at their historic clubhouse located at 238 W. Mission Road.

Women in the Fallbrook area are invited to learn more about how the FWC provides the opportunity to develop leadership skills, exchange ideas, and form friendships, while addressing the needs of the Fallbrook community.

The FWC was founded in 1907 as the Saturday Afternoon Club by the wives of local ranchers who came to town with their husbands and wanted something meaningful to do. They volunteered their services for community improvements, including offering their meeting place to the American Red Cross during WWI, sponsoring the first Girl Scout Troop west of the Rockies, and founding the first public library in San Diego County.

Meanwhile, similar movements were taking place across the country and by 1946 the club name was changed to Fallbrook Woman’s Club and they became part of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs. General meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month (except July and August) at the clubhouse at 11:00 a.m. Additional information may be found at www.fallbrookwomansclub.org.

Anyone interested in attending this luncheon and learning more about the Fallbrook Woman’s Club may call Shirlee Fagan at (760) 728-3866 by Aug. 18.
