Parker County Women’s and Newcomers’ Club, in Weatherford, Texas (about 25 miles west of Fort Worth), was founded in 1975 for the purpose of meeting the needs of Weatherford newcomers. Membership was later expanded to include all women of Parker County.
The group exists to promote social and service contacts. Regular meetings are held monthly and consist of a business meeting and program. A luncheon follows. Select Monthly Meeting from the navigation menu for some details of the monthly meetings.
PCWNC's main service focus is a Weatherford College scholarship program which was started in 1998. Each semester our Scholarship Committee selects one or more non-traditional female students attending Weatherford College to award full or partial scholarships. Without these scholarships many of these women would not be able to complete their studies at the college. We hold several fundraisers during the year for our scholarship fund. Since 2000, our club has given more than $115,000 to support scholarships.
Club members may choose to participate in a range of special interest activities, including card and board games of all types, Bible study, movies, exploring the area, and breakfast and lunch outings.
We invite all area women to join us. Click the Application/Renewal link below for a downloadable, printable membership application. It includes full instructions.
