The Amherst Woman's Club

The Club was founded in 1893 to "provide common ground for women to share in cultural and philanthropic activities and to foster the interests of its members in literary, scientific, musical, historical, and other topics of vital importance; to promote culture and cordial personal relations among women; and to contribute to the welfare of the community." The Club of today remains true to these important goals by providing educational programs on a wide variety of subjects. We also provide musical programs, social events and fundraisers to meet our commitment of support to community service agencies in our local communities and to provide scholarships to two Amherst Pelham Regional High School seniors.

The Amherst Woman’s Club meets every other Monday through most of the year.   Membership is open to women throughout the Pioneer Valley.    All club meetings are held at the Hills Memorial Club House, 35 Triangle Street, Amherst and are free and open to the public.
