Mascoutah Tues. Woman’s Club

Our club was organized in 1935 from a real desire of women in the town of Mascoutah to start a library – and we did it!  We still support the public library today by donating money and resources for the summer children’s reading program.  Today our membership numbers 47.

Annual Club Projects

 

 

Fundraisers:

 

Tea Party in the Fall

 

Two Rummage Sales

 

Uncle Al’s Nut Sale

 

These fundraisers benefit autism victims and a local civic center where families can leave their children after school to participate in sports and other activities, e.g. nursing home bingo

 

In another project we make blankets for local ambulances and police cars for abused or injured children

 

We run a cake and pie stand during homecoming to benefit our local parks’ upkeep and maintenance.

 

We sponsor a Mascoutah High School girl (usually a daughter or grand-daughter of one of our members) to be a homecoming queen candidate for our annual Homecoming Picnic which is a community event every August in Mascoutah.

 

We sponsor a South American girl in Childreach..she is a teenager now.
