The Breezy Point Area Women’s Club was organized Oct. 30, 1972, at Breezy Point Village Hall with 25 charter members. The club was founded as a charitable and social organization and has contributed toward many community projects and worthwhile causes through the years.
Annual membership dues are $20.
Currently, the club is involved in the following community service projects with funds for these projects provided through annual fundraisers and member dues:
Two $600 scholarships are given annually to non-traditional female students attending Central Lakes College.
Members organize and maintain donated books at the city hall library; plant and maintain the garden areas on city hall grounds; and craft tray favors in November for care center residents in Pine River and Pequot Lakes.
A monetary donation and food shelf items are donated to the Lakes Area Food Shelf annually.
