Our club meetings are on the third Tuesday of the month from September until May.  We typically meet in clubmembers' homes. 

There are hands on activities in the community several times a year however the vast majority of our projects and work are done within the meetings.  We try to have a speaker each month share about their organization and how CWC can support their efforts.  We are women from all walks of life with the same goal of working together to make our community better and stronger.

We do not require that you belong to any particular affiliation or possess any previous memberships to join our organization. We do ask that you support our organization through regular participation in activities.

A Collect for Clubwomen 

Keep us, oh God, from pettiness;
Let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.
Let us be done with fault finding and leave off self seeking.
May we put away all pretense and meet each other face to face,
Without self pity and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judgment and always generous.
Let us take time for all things; make us to grow calm, serene, gentle.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses, straight forward and unafraid.
Grant that we may realize it is the little things that create differences
That in the big things of life we are at one.  
And may we strive to touch and to know the great common human heart of us all,
And, oh Lord God, let us forget not to be kind! 

- Mary Stewart, April 1904 

Salute to the North Carolina Flag

Right hand held out toward the flag

"I salute the flag of North Carolina and pledge to the old North State, love, loyalty and faith."

The North Carolina General Assembly adopted the pledge in 2007.  

History of Mary Stewart’s Collect 

(As told by Mary Stewart) 

“The Collect was written as a personal prayer for the day, and without any organization in mind. It was written at Longmont, Colorado, in 1904. “The prayer was offered for publication under the title A Collect for Clubwomen because at that time I felt that women working together with wide interest for large ends was a new thing under the sun, and that perhaps they had need for special petition and meditation of their own.” This must have been true, for the Collect has found its way about the world wherever English speaking women work together. The first women’s organization to hear or use the Collect or to print it in its yearbooks and biennial reports was the General Federation of Women’s Clubs. A common confusion in the meaning of the title likewise needs clearing. Fre-quently one hears it called a ‘creed.’ Every line of it is a petition, a prayer, that is a collect. Nowhere does it assert a declaration of faith, an ‘I Believe’ which is a creed.
