The Holly Club of Wrentham was organized in 1898. The club was named when a group of women, seeking to begin a women's club, met in December and noticed the bowl of holly on the table. The decision was made to take the name The Holly Club.
This club is dedicated to social services, civic activities and a broader fellowship among women. Affiliated with the General Federation of Women's Clubs of Massachusetts, and the General Federation of Women's Clubs, the Holly Club is open to all women regardless of race, color or creed.
In broadening our membership base, we become aware of other groups, other needs, other ways in which we can become involved and make a difference in the world, sometimes in small ways, sometimes in larger ways.
Any woman interested in the objectives and work of the club is invited to attend a meeting and/or become a member. Please contact our Membership Chairperson, Alicia Sheridan at firstname.lastname@example.org or Elsie DeLorenzo at email@example.com.
