Who We Are The Women’s Club provides a format to meet neighbors and become involved in the community. All Island women are welcome to join us.
Fund Raising If you want to show off your association with Harstine Island, there are logos galore at the Women’s Club booth at the Saturday Market. Sweatshirts, fleece vests, denim shirts, visors, and of course T-shirts are some of the clothing items available. License plate holders and mugs are part of the various choices. The book, The Island Remembers, which gives a historical view of the island is also available as well as our cookbook, Harstine Island Cooks. Many of these activities raise funds and the use of those funds is another important part of Women’s Club.
Scholarships We provide scholarships for local students, contribute to Pioneer School and local food banks, and help with the expenses of keeping the Community Hall insured and in shape.
Sewing People who enjoy sewing meet monthly in each others homes on the fourth Tuesday from 10:00 to 2:00 to share handiwork, relaxation and lunch. Join us at Women’s Club and experience the feeling of belonging that only a small community can offer.
Meetings Social activities include the monthly meeting (except July) where members gather for camaraderie and programs. Lunch is either a brown-bag along with a provided dessert or one of our theme lunches.
Holiday House is a popular venue which showcases hand-crafted items, a perfect way to start your holiday shopping. It is held the Saturday after Thanksgiving at the Community Hall and Fire Station.
Kids’ Carnival is held on the 2nd Saturday in August. Young people and adults work together to provide a fun-filled day for the children. There are games, clowns and prizes. A great activity for children and grandchildren!
Memorial Lunches When someone from the island passes on, the women provide a memorial lunch at the Community Hall. It’s a service that allows the family to grieve, as well as feel the sense of community the island provides.
