Welcome

 

Welcome to The Saturday Club. ┬áSince the 1880’s The Saturday Club has filled a need for women to enrich their lives by connecting with other women and working to support local organizations through philanthropy and volunteerism. ┬áThe Saturday Club has demonstrated its commitment to the surrounding community by serving those in need throughout its history. Some highlights from our many accomplishments include:

  • As early as 1907, vigorously campaigning for child labor laws and the protection of women from assault
  • Founding the first kindergarten in Wayne
  • Raising funds for French orphans during World War I
  • Converting the Clubhouse into a 60+ bed temporary hospital, when hospitals were overflowing during the 1918 Influenza Pandemic
  • Starting a theater group called The Footlighters (now in Berwyn, PA)
  • Entertaining the troops and establishing the Clubhouse as an emergency Red Cross hospital, and selling over $85,000 worth of War Bonds during World War II
  • Preparing seventy volumes of books in Braille for the Royer-Greaves School for the Blind in Paoli during the 1930’s
  • Operating the Peter Pan School for Retarded [sic] Children – a nursery school to provide early education for developmentally delayed and disabled children in the 1960’s

Today, the club supports local organizations through charitable donations and serves as a networking group for its members.
