What we do:

Guest speakers at our monthly meetings provide knowledge on local, regional, and/or national issues. These speakers may inspire the club to advocate for change. By hosting an annual Homes Tour, funds are raised for the Scholarship Fund.   All female graduates of Orillia High Schools, including the Learning Centre, are eligible to apply.   Members join Interest Groups to fit their passion and make new friends. The annual Holiday Dinner and Silent Auction raises money for the club’s operations. We have a banquet in the spring with a guest speaker and then we end the year with an informal pot luck dinner in June.


When and Where (virtually via Zoom) we meet:

Generally we meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month from September through April at 7pm at the Orillia Museum of Art and History, 30 Peter Street South, Orillia. New members and potential new members are always welcome to attend. If you would like to join us for dinner prior to the meeting, please contact us .
