"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners
                    who make our souls blossom."                                                     - Marcel Proust

Since its inception in 1979, our Social Club for women has provided our members a wonderful opportunity to learn about the Tampa Bay area, make new friends and share in numerous, enriching activities.  Our club also provides the opportunity to give back to the community by educating our members about local charitable organizations and providing volunteer opportunities to those interested in community service.

Newcomer  membership is open to women who live in the Northwest Hillsborough County area and who have moved here within the past 4 years.  However, membership under Open Enrollment is available for women who have resided here for more than 4 years or who live just outside the boundaries. 
Our Membership Chair, Sue D’Auria will be happy to give you all the particulars and answer any questions.  Please contact her: 813-613-3663 or complete the form below. 
Annual dues are $30. Our membership year runs from June 1st to May 31st.  Prospective members are invited to attend 3 club activities before making a decision to join.
