Midway Women’s Club

The Midway Women’s Club is a non-profit, volunteer group of ladies who gather monthly in each other’s homes to discuss ideas for local philanthropic endeavors. The club focuses on community service projects and holds various fundraisers to support their efforts. At Thanksgiving and Christmas, the women in the club voted to help two local families by purchasing groceries and gifts. The ladies regularly set up a manicure salon at Mountainside Senior Living and paint the residents’ nails. We also decorate the Veteran’s Medical Center for various holidays with funding provided by the Green Olive Tree.

While there is much business to tend to at our meetings, we also have lots of fun.  In December we met at the Boar’s Head for a lovely buffet lunch. In January we went to a movie together. We frequently invite various speakers to come to our meetings.

Our fundraising efforts are quite unique—at one meeting we had a “gold party” where we brought gold jewelry to be bought by The Gold Lady—she donated a portion of the sales directly back to the club. In the Fall, we held an auction of white elephant items to raise money. We all came home with various treasures and raised money for the club. You can look for us outside the Crozet Great Value on the Fridays before Easter and Halloween, selling delicious baked goods. Many of the ladies live near Midway Road, off Miller School Road, but we welcome all. If you’re interested in having fun and joining in our efforts to do good works in the community, please contact Carol Turner at 434-989-2313 or Joice Wright at 540-292-9319.

We’d love to have you!
