Making It Better

for our community by working toward

a brighter stronger tomorrow

The Yankeetown-Inglis Woman's Club

is proud to serve the needs of

our local communities.

 

The Yankeetown Woman's Club was founded in April 1965 by sixty-six charter members of the community.  Mrs. Arthur Vorp, acting chairman, named a nominating committee to present a slate of officers for the May meeting. A by-laws committee was also named, a mission statement completed and the Yankeetown Woman's Club was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in the State of Florida March 29, 1966. 

 

The Knotts Trustees of Yankeetown donated property on 56th Street where the Clubhouse sits today.  The members went to work securing plans for the Woman's Club building and raising the money needed to get it built.  Over the next three years many bazaars and bake sales were held and construction started May 8,1968.  The first meeting of the season was held in the new Clubhouse in October. 

 

Many meetings, events and parties have been held in the Clubhouse over the years and it has seen many talented and caring women come through its doors.  In an effort to welcome women from both Yankeetown and Inglis, the members voted in 1999 to add Inglis to their name. From the beginning the Yankeetown-Inglis Woman's Club has had the heart of the community in the center of their plans
