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.
The Community House located on Service Drive just west of the Administration Building is the pride of the Dunes Woman’s Club.
The house serves as the location for the monthly meetings, and the annual Holiday Marketplace in November.The porch of the house serves as a community library. Books are available for the taking anytime. Donations of books in good condition are also welcomed.
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.
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; and
providing volunteer service for community projects.
The Holiday Marketplace is held the weekend before Thanksgiving.
2018 marked the 61st Annual Marketplace.
The marketplace is the primary fund raising event for the year.
Items for sale include Holiday greens, craft items, breads, other sweets, frozen soups and casseroles.
Mark your calendar to visit November 17 or 18, 2018 at the Community House, Beverly Shores, IN.
Advertise in the DWC phone & information book….coming early summer 2019.
One of the projects that the Dunes Woman’s Club does every five years is to publish a phone/information book for the Beverly Shores area. The sales revenue becomes part of the club’s philanthropic endeavors.
So a one-time payment for an ad will be good for 5 years. Books should be out early summer.
As a side note, the women of the club invite businesses to advertise. What this says is that there have been positive transactions with the business…a vote of approval of a DWC member.
The Directory will be on 8 ½ X 11 in paper, spiral bound, color photo on front, with heavy plastic cover. We will be printing 325 books. The sale price has been about $15.
Advertisers purchasing an ad of at least ½ page or larger will get a directory for free.
Ad Cost –
Full Page ad: $100; ¾ page ad: $80; ½ page ad: $55;¼ page ad: $35; Business card size: $20
“Keeping the unity in our community”
This is a quilt that the club made for the 50th Anniversary of Beverly Shores.
The 42 squares depict the different aspects of life in Beverly Shores and each exhibits the dedication and of a different member of the Dunes Woman’s Club at that time
The quilt hangs in the Administration Building meeting room.
June through August 2018: Dine for the Depot.
Thank you to all who supported the Dine for the Depot events.
A portion of your food costs went to support the Beverly Shores Depot Museum.
That portion totaled just over $3000.
A hearty thank you to Jannsens, Chipotle, Rolling Stonebaker, Fiddlehead and Panera for hosting the event.
