Woman’s Century Club
History of Woman’s Century Club
The Woman’s Club of North Yakima was organized in March 1894. In 1900, a second club was formed called the Twentieth Century Club. The two clubs merged to form the Woman’s Century Club. The Woman’s Century Club joined the Washington State Federation of Women’s Clubs on December 1, 1896.
The Club became so large that they divided into departments to better meet the various interests of the members. Members were involved with the many other organizations. Several were President of the Yakima Valley District Federation of Women’s Clubs . They were instrumental is getting the International Congress of Women at the World’s Fair in Chicago in 1933.
