For over 80 years the Munsey Park Women’s Club has strengthened friendliness and civic responsibility among neighbors of the Village of Munsey Park.
Each year the MPWC brings families together for lots of fun events including an Easter egg hunt, a Halloween parade, and other children’s activities. Friendships are formed at progressive dinners, wine tastings, and similar couples’ events. Activities for women include cooking demonstrations and shopping nights, plus an annual ladies night in September and June.
Through proceeds by two neighborhood events, Light the Night in December and a Children’s Fun Run in the Spring, the club’s non-profit entity, Munsey Park Women’s Club Philanthripic, Inc., supports may different community initiatives.
A club newsletter and directory are distributed to all members. Through service on MPWC committees, members have an opportunity to organize activities and shape the future of the club.
