The annual silent auction, held each fall, is our largest fund raiser and is always a wonderful day of bidding, buying and enjoying refreshments with friends and neighbors.

Since the first meeting on April 1, 1903 the members of the Oregon City Woman's Club have worked together on civic improvement projects and have raised funds to support local and national non-profit agencies working in healthcare, human services, animal protection and other areas of need in our city, county and state. Formed around the idea of women coming together to bring about change through group action, a decade before women won the right to vote in Oregon, founding member Mrs. Eva Emery Dye stated, "like the public school the Woman's Club is a school in citizenship for all women."
Meetings and events
The Oregon City Woman's Club meets on the second Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 11:00 a.m. In addition to a luncheon at a local restaurant the agenda includes a business meeting, speakers and special programs.
