From the San Clemente Junior Woman's Club --
The San Clemente Junior Woman’s Club received an award of recognition from the City of San Clemente presented by Mayor Baker at the club’s April 15 meeting.
The club in March donated $23,000 to dozens of local charities.
The award recognizes the club for its participation in the “We CAN Make a Difference” CANned Food Drive for Family Assistance Ministries during Blue Ribbon Week in February in addition to the club’s 65 years of service and ongoing support of the community.
The Mayor read the plaque including the following excerpt:
“Whereas the members of the San Clemente Junior Woman’s Club serve as exemplary role models for our community. Whereas through their volunteerism they have successfully provided aid to numerous charities and improved the San Clemente Community.”
Each year the San Clemente Junior Woman’s Club’s raises funds with the goal of donating the money back into the community to numerous causes and organizations as the Mayor noted. The club’s largest fundraiser will be held April 27th. It’s the San Clemente Junior Woman’s Club’s 5th annual Casino Night.
This year it’s Mardi Gras-themed with food, drink, silent and live auctions, a photo booth, an optional Texas Hold’em tournament and much more!
All proceeds go to support the San Clemente Junior Woman’s Club’s civic, educational and social projects. Call 949-226-246, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.scjwc.org for tickets.

The Club is a casual group of civic-minded women who meet monthly to discuss ways to raise money and donate our service to our local community. The club’s national organization, the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, describes it well - “We are mothers and daughters, business and community leaders, and women of diverse interests, talents, and backgrounds—all united by a dedication to community improvement through volunteer service.”
