The Red Land Area Women’s Club is comprised of an amazing group of women who take an interest in the community. Through various fundraisers we are able to provide scholarships to graduating Red Land High School seniors as well as graduation awards, contribute to the Jane Miller Dental Fund, support the senior center to name a few of our projects.
Our club history will give you an idea of all we have accomplished since our inception in 1969. Take a moment to look at these accomplishments and consider joining our group.
