DWC meets monthly at noon on the second Thursday of the month at the Community House in Beverly Shores, IN. There are no meetings in January, July and August.
Dues of $20 are collected on an annual basis in September.
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.
