The Mira Mesa Woman’s Club sponsors the annual “Chalk the Walk” event at Mira Mesa Community Park. And, until recently, we held our monthly meetings at the Verne Goodwin Senior Center. We have recently moved our monthly meetings to the First Baptist Church. We have attended several of the recent park planning meetings that are being held by the Mira Mesa Recreation Council. A most interesting and fun process.
This fall we will celebrate our 42nd anniversary. We are affiliated with the GFWC, General Federation of Woman’s Clubs which was founded in 1890, 126 years ago!
We are an all volunteer, 501-c-3 nonprofit organization.
