|CRETE WOMAN'S CLUB
All women of Crete and its vicinity are eligible for membership in this organization
whose purpose is to promote friendship among the women of the Crete area.
The Crete Woman's Club dates back to 1912 when a group of Crete women formed
the organization for the purpose of community service. Our organization continues
with that purpose, as the main interest of the club is to work towards the promotion
of a unified effort toward peace and charity and service throughout the community.
Though the Crete Woman's Club's goals are to give back to the community by being
charitable, we also enjoy the camaraderie and friendship of women who like to have fun.
Since its inception, the Crete Woman's Club has been there to beautify the community;
to support education; to enrich the minds of children; to promote the Arts; and to help
the less fortunate. The organization is comprised of talented, creative women
who come from all segments of the community; are leaders in the community;
and are working toward one common goal.....charity in the community.
The Crete Woman's Club contributes to the Crete Public Library, Crete Park District,
Crete Community Nature Park, and various special programs of the Crete-Monee School District
201-U. Other philanthropic donations include Angels on Assignment, Thorn Creek Audubon
Society, PADS, New Hope, Crete F-Men, Aunt Martha's and Trinity Services. Monies from the fund
raisers go to local students for academic and summer camp scholarships.
The Club also participates in the Salvation Army Bell Ringing and assists the Crete Pantry.
The best part of our group is the friendships formed. Some of these friendships
extend into fun activities which include two Book Clubs that meet once a month
to discuss books and authors; the Bridge Marathon and Pinochle groups, and
the Great Decisions Forum that meets each spring to discuss current events.
Other special interest groups include "Taste Buds", Paper Crafts, and Needlework.
Fund raisers for the 2012-2013 club year include a Bingo Night on April 11th,
and the June 25-27 "Day in the Country" Garden Walk & Faire.
All members are expected to participate in club fund raising events.
Come and join the organization of women in the Crete area who for the past century
have made a significant difference in the South Suburban region. During 2011-2012
we will be celebrating 100 years of service to the Crete community
Membership dues are $30 per year.
