The signature fundraiser of the WWC has become a “Westport Institution,” which is attended by grandparents, parents, and children of our town and from surrounding areas. This fun event runs for four days (Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday) during Father's Day weekend every June. In addition to carnival rides and an International Food Court, the YDF features a Bake Sale, raffle prizes, and carnival games. (more…)
The WWC Food Closet works in conjunction with Human Services at Westport Town Hall. When individuals/families who are in need contact Human Services, we fulfill their requests for food by providing them with bags of groceries and with Stop and Shop gift cards (for them to purchase meats, fresh fruits and vegetables, and dairy products). When the bags are packed, the Food Closet workers deliver them to Town Hall. The recipients remain anonymous to us and are able to pick up their groceries and food cards at Town Hall. (more…)
Founded in 2014, BYOB Friday usually happens on the third Friday of the month, from 4 - 5:30 p.m. in the kitchen (unless we need to yield to a Rental). Every member with a sense of humor is welcome to stop in for any or all of that time. Gatherings are picnic-style, with attendees bringing something to sip, nibbles to share and their own set-ups. "We leave no fingerprints!" (Dorothy Curran)
This group meets for luncheon once a month in local area restaurants. Selections are made from the regular menu. We ask for separate checks, although occasionally that is not possible.
We dine in a variety of interesting restaurants and invite you to join us on the fourth Tuesday of the month to enjoy good food and good company. We average 8-12 attendees, but at times have had more. There is no commitment or membership fee, but we are expected to host one Club Day per year. (Bobbie Herman)
Our club volunteers run the Curio Cottage which opened in 1999 and operates year-round. Due to the dedication and efforts of our members, Curio Cottage has raised over $500,000 in support of the philanthropic mission of the WWC. It’s a fun place to volunteer.
Curio Cottage offers a wide variety of quality items from glassware, kitchen equipment, jewelry, collectibles and much more. All of the merchandise is donated.
You never know what treasures you will find!
This committee is responsible for expressing sentiments of the WWC to members in matters of personal concerns. The Sunshine Girls, originally known as the Friendship Committee, was formed in 1999.

A minimum of four players are usually needed for this traditional Chinese tile game. We meet when enough players are available. It is not necessary to have your own Mah Jongg set or card.

Gourmet meets on the third Tuesday of the month in Bedford Hall at 11:30am and has been enjoyed by many members since the 1980s. The group explores a variety of cuisines and although some of our members are quite adventurous cooks, others join us for social reasons and take on less demanding recipes. Members commit to cook once a year in a small group which is responsible for choosing the menu and preparing a luncheon for that month's gourmet gathering. Our luncheons are noted for fine food and great conversation! We also have potluck events twice a year where members contribute a dish for everyone to enjoy, and an occasional restaurant outing.
Our award winning Garden Room had its beginnings in 1910 when the then Women's Town Improvement Association sponsored a children's competition for The Best Flower. However, it was officially established in 1939 when it was inducted into the Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut, Inc. Prize-winning projects of The Garden Room included the Greening of the Post Road and Canal Green Park. Our Garden Room was the winner of the Second National Award in an Environment Improvement Program sponsored by the National Council of State Garden Clubs Inc. and was a pioneer in ecology in the 1970's.
