Looking to meet other women and/or mothers in Weston? Want to connect with the Weston community and contribute to local charitable activities?
The Weston Women’s League (WWL) invites all who are interested to an open house on Tuesday, July 17, starting at 11:30 a.m.
The luncheon is an opportunity for current and past members to reconnect with friends during the quiet days of summer. It is also a way for prospective members to learn about the league and its endeavors.
The WWL is a social and charitable organization dedicated to helping neighbors in need. The league sponsors ongoing social events to help women connect with one another, and it sponsors many Weston community events, including the summer Weston Farmer’s Market, Main Street Weston, the Gingerbread Holiday Brunch, and the Memorial Day BikeFest.
“Many of our members join shortly after they move to town. It’s really a great way to make new friends and to connect with the community,” said Kim Burke, membership chairman. “They also find it fulfills a desire to give back to help other families in our town and nearby.”
To date, WWL has donated approximately $600,000 to charities in Weston, as well as surrounding towns.
Recent beneficiaries of fund-raising efforts include Kids in Crisis in Norwalk, Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program (ADAP), and Weston Education Foundation.
Five years ago, the league also began hosting an annual baby shower for mothers who are part of the Families and Children’s Agency MOMS program. “Our members really love to work with the mothers and new babies at this annual event,” said Ms. Burke.
