Club History

When the club was chartered in 1971, the Outer Banks was still a remote and sparsely-populated area. Members recognized and addressed many issues such as the need for quality school systems, access to hospital care, and the preservation of Jockey’s Ridge State Park. Over the years, members have raised $25,000 for the construction of the Dare County Youth Center and over $10,000 for the Roanoke Island NC Aquarium. 

The club’s proud legacy of achievement has been recognized by the Governor of NC, the NC Department of Human Resources, the Dare County Board of Commissioners, the Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce, and the General Federation of Women’s Clubs of NC.
