Does your local non-profit organization need funds for a planned initiative? If so, and you can submit your application and annual report by Oct. 31, the Westport Woman’s Club may be able to help.

For 108 years, “Help where needed,” has been the goal of the WWC’s entrepreneurial fund-raising, “here and near,” grant-giving, scholarships and public-private partnerships. However, although total cumulative WWC grants since 1907–including cash, goods, services (providing Westport’s first sidewalks and health services; collaborating with the Town/E.T. Bedford to develop pre-municipal services) and even riparian rights (to the Town of Westport, for the 2-acre landfill parking lots on Imperial Ave., in exchange for 100 parking spaces in perpetuity)—are in the many millions of dollars, each year’s local need among non-profits always exceeds the WWC’s annual response capacity.  Click here:  Application.      Continue Reading

Special thanks to those who came anyway on Sat. June 20, rode the rides and bought Raffle tickets (our “rain insurance”) during the surprise day-long drizzle. Continue Reading


Just another invitation to think about working one, or more, shifts at the Curio Cottage. With so many workers taking vacations, we really need extra workers during this time…and it really is fun! Hope to see many new workers.

Just let Colleen, Jackie Froelich, Lorraine Feliciano or Karen Eickhoff know and we will put your name on the sub list.


At our July Bunco Night, we crowned our “Bunco Queen – 2015”
DIANA ZASLOW! Diana has been a bunco player for several years and this is her 3rd “crowning!” We all bid her a fond farewell as she will be moving but encourage her to continue her bunco playing in her new location.
