Woman’s club plans a year of wellness

The Wilton Woman’s Club will begin it’s 50th anniversary year with its first general meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 1, at 10, at Trackside, 15 Station Road. There will be exhibits on how the club has helped the Wilton community through the years and there will be news of plans for the coming year, which will focus on women’s health and well-being.
Throughout the year the club will address the Norwalk River Valley Trail, personal training and fitness, skin care disease and prevention, and social events such as spinning and yoga.
The one event veering from that direction is the Shopping, Wine and Cheese event at Open House and Signature Style in November.
Funds raised at all events will go to support different groups in town such as the Wilton Senior Center, and Wilton students who need help to purchase what they need to be well-prepared in school.
The club was founded in 1966 by Betty Sternad, to help Wilton and strengthen bonds between women through service, social events, and philanthropy. Through the years, the club has provided financial support to Wilton Social Services, Ogden House, the Wilton Town Green, Wilton’s first bicycle path, Wilton ambulance equipment, Adopt-a-Spot, Circle of Care, and Wilton High School seniors through the Betty Sternad scholarship and the Julia Robb Scholarship.
In addition, the Club has donated many hours of volunteer service to the Connecticut Food Bank, and Person to Person, an agency that helps families in Wilton and Norwalk with its food pantry and clothing center, and has made dinners in November and December for Wilton Social Services to deliver to homebound seniors. Finally, the Club fosters knowledge and communication between women in Wilton with social events such as coffees, interesting local trips, and monthly meetings featuring local speakers.
Prospective members are welcome at the Sept. 1 meeting.
