Operation Santa: This program helps to ensure that all children have a Happy Holiday. Giving Trees with tags for needed and wanted items are set up around town in November and Club members help pickup, wrap, and organize gifts for distribution to needy families. Many hands are needed and all is done very discretely!
Earth Day: In support of Earth Day, a town-wide roadside cleanup is organized on a Saturday in April. The Club publicizes the event and provides special blue bags for trash collection. Each blue trash bag turned in to the Transfer Station by noon earns a raffle ticket for a chance at a prize provided by the Club.
Mother's Garden: In 1977 the RWC took on the project of redesigning, planting, and maintaining the Mother's Garden at the Cathedral of the Pines. For 43 years, our Club has been providing most of the funding, and our members have been actively caring for and managing this special garden with a bit of outside help as needed. In 2020 we handed over the gardening and management of the Mother's Garden to the Cathedral of the Pines with the promise of a yearly donation to help cover the expenses.
President's Project: Each year the Club President is allowed funds towards a public project of her choosing that will benefit the Town of Rindge in some way.
Mission and Membership
The Mission of the Rindge Woman's Club (RWC), is to work for the benefit, betterment, and welfare of the Rindge community and to sponsor, support, and donate to cultural, civic, and charitable projects.
Membership in the RWC is open to any woman who is sympathetic to the Mission of the Club. She becomes a member upon payment of dues, however, non-members are always welcome at meetings and to participate in activities and programs.
Major Fund Raising Activities
(Due to COVID-19, some of our activities may be cancelled, postponed, or redesigned. Please watch our Events page for up to date information.)
Annual Plant Sale and Bake Table: This event is held in conjunction with the Town-Wide Yard Sale. The RWC sells plants (mostly donated from members' own gardens) and hosts a bake table providing home-baked goodies. This highly anticipated event draws a large crowd and is a fun way to spend a Saturday.
Summer Raffle: Beginning with the Plant Sale, and continuing through to our Harvest Fair in October, raffle tickets are sold at pre-determined times and locations in town. We have items that will appeal to men, women, boys, and girls and all are of the highest quality. There is something for everyone and it is fun to sell tickets and enjoy the socializing.
Annual Harvest Fair: This is the largest of our fundraising activities, and is typically held on the last Saturday of September. We sell local produce, handmade canned and baked goods and arts and crafts. A special attraction is the Basket Raffle that includes a wide assortment of gift certificates and other items. In addition, we host many vendors who purchase space to sell their wares. Lunch is also served.
Each month we usually have an interesting presentation along with our regular business meeting. Our presenters are typically local talents or organizations that come to entertain, educate, or enlighten our membership. Prior to each upcoming meeting, information about the meeting is normally put on the Home page of this website and on our Facebook page.
