Violet Township Women’s League

Leadership

The Violet Township Women’s League is managed by a combined Board of Directors. The Executive Board consists of six (6) elected officers: President, 1st Vice President, 2nd Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Assistant Treasurer. The remainder of the Board consists of non-elected Committee Chairs and an Advisory Committee.

Activities

At the heart of The Violet Township Women’s League lies within its Interest Groups. The Club currently has a number of well-attended activities that include card groups, dining groups, movies, day trips, needlework and/or crafts, and more. 

Starting a new group is as easy as assigning a coordinator, choosing a meeting time and place and contacting the Interest Group Chairperson so that she can prepare a sign-up sheet for the next general meeting. If you are interested in joining or starting an Interest Group, please contact Ann Cradduck at one of our meetings.

Giving Back

The Violet Township Women’s League honors its purpose of service to the community in a number of ways. 

The Violet Township Women’s League Community Service Scholarship Fund

The VTWL Scholarship Fund provides annual scholarship opportunities to local, college-bound high school seniors with a demonstrated commitment to community service. The scholarship fund is built from the proceeds of the Club’s annual Style Show and Luncheon fundraiser. The number of scholarships offered and the amount of each is determined annually.

Community Outreach Night

Each Fall, The Violet Township Women’s League designates a general meeting as “Community Outreach Night”. This program is organized and facilitated by the Community Service Chair(s) and features representatives from local charities and organizations who share information about their services and needs. Members are encouraged to support these organizations both individually and collectively. 

Holiday “Adopted” Family

Each holiday season, The Violet Township Women’s League brightens the holiday of a family (or families) by donating gift items from a wish list provided by the family. Collections are distributed through the Club’s ongoing association with Fairfield County Department of Jobs and Family Services.

Monthly Charity Collections

Each month, a voluntary collection is taken to benefit a local charitable organization. Members are provided a list of suggested items needed by the organization and asked to bring any donations to the general meeting. The Community Service Chair(s) deliver all donations collected within a few days of the meeting.
