Mission:
The Mission of the Dunes Woman’s club is to serve and enhance its local community by:

  • improving its members through education;
  • supporting other organizations through donations;
  • providing volunteer service for community projects.


History:
Historical records show that on June, 28, 1934 the Chesterton Tribune reported:
 “Mrs. Ruth Wollett entertained a group of Beverly Shores ladies last Friday afternoon and the organization of a women’s club was discussed.  Those present were enthusiastic and seemed to believe that a woman’s club was necessary at the present stage of development of this lake shore development.”
The club was finally “officially organized” in 1939.
The club claims Blue and Sand as its colors.
Current membership is at fifty-five ladies living in Beverly Shores and surrounding communities.
