College Women’s Club of Pasadena celebrates the holidays
The College Women’s Club of Pasadena will celebrate the holidays with an Italian lunch and music by Violinist Paul Stein on Tuesday, December 5th at 12 noon at The Blinn House, Pasadena. Lunch is $20 for members and their guests.
On June 17, 1921 the College Women’s Club of Pasadena held its first meeting at the Shakespeare Club. Mrs. Marie Hinricks, wife of a Cal Tech professor, was elected President and dues were set at $1.00 per year. Two years later, in 1923, the Club had 206 members, representing 59 colleges. Currently, over 100 years later, the Club continues to adhere to its original purposes, providing scholarships and fellowships to deserving women in local colleges as well as providing social and intellectual opportunities for women in the Pasadena area. For the 2023-24 academic year, CWCP awarded a total of $61,500 to 17 worthy recipients. These women are undergraduate and graduate students at these colleges: East Los Angeles College, Glendale Community College, Pasadena City College, Pacific Oaks College, California State University Los Angeles Schools of Nursing and Criminalistics.
Since the founding of the College Women’s Club of Pasadena in 1921, its purposes have remained the same:
(1) To provide scholarships and fellowships to women attending college in the Pasadena area.
(2) To strengthen the fellowship of college women in the Pasadena area.
(3) To stimulate the continuous development of members.
We are actively seeking new members.
