Scripps Ranch Women’s Club

At a recent function the Scripps Ranch Women’s Club (SRWC) collected close to $4,000 worth of clothing, toiletries, and spa supplies for the women and children staying at Hidden Valley House. Some of the items also went to families in the transitional housing coordinated by the Center for Community Solutions.

Members attended Perfect Wedding at the Scripps Ranch Theatre in May. Phil and Judy Gagnon hosted a pre-theater cocktail hour at their house. The club’s annual Membership Brunch was also held in May at Laura Goodrich’s home. The brunch was to welcome new members. Nancy Sundheimer of Design Connection in Carlsbad spoke to the group. Her topic was "Finding Your Style."

Upcoming club events include the following: participating in the Liberty Run/Walk across the Coronado Bay Bridge on Sunday, June 8; chaperoning the Scripps Ranch High School senior graduation party on Friday, June 13; International Dining’s Puerto Rican dinner hosted at Mary Cooksey’s house on Saturday, June 21; and, the annual meeting on Wednesday, July 16.

A big thank you to all the local businesses for their donations for the club’s annual fashion show and fundraiser. Their generous contributions helped make the fashion show a very successful event. More about the club’s community donations will be in future articles.

The SRWC was organized in 1990 as a nonprofit community organization. Its motto is "Women United in Community Spirit." The club’s goal is to promote community service and to serve as a social outlet for its members. In addition to regular monthly general meetings, the club also has an international dining group and two bunco groups.
