The Bedford Women's Club offers cultural, educational and social activities for members. With a current membership of over 192 women from Bedford, Auburn, Derry, Manchester, Merrimack, Nashua, New Boston, Hooksett, Amherst and other surrounding communities - we are a diverse group of friends.
We take pride in our many contributions to the community. Specifically, we offer scholarships to local high school seniors as well as women pursuing degrees and further education later in life. Furthermore, we have an extensive charitable donation program that includes monthly donations to area charities collected by the membership as well as annual monetary donations to local 5013c organizations.
As a social, educational and cultural organization our members enjoy the opportunity to gather monthly, attend annual special social events and participate in a wide variety of approximately 25 interest groups. During monthly meetings, members enjoy luncheons with special guest speakers that provide community and cultural education. Please note our upcoming events listed throughout this website.
