Trumbull Community Women celebrate 50th anniversary

On Saturday, May 30, from 2-4 p.m., the Community Room of the Trumbull Library, the current volunteers of Trumbull Community Women commemorate the club’s founding in 1965 and recollect some of the milestones passed in the 50 years since then.

Trumbull Community Women, whose slogan is RElove Trumbull. REdiscover our town, is part of the Connecticut Junior Women’s Club, Inc., a statewide organization of more than 700 women providing community service throughout the state. But it was established in 1965 as the Trumbull Junior Women’s Club.

Then, in 2006, wanting to differentiate their group from the myriad women’s clubs in the area, the members voted to rename themselves, selecting a title that signals to everyone that they are women of all ages committed to service in the community: The Children’s Creative Center at the Arts Festival, the health walk at the Pumpkin Run, breakfast for vets on Veterans Day, Red Dress pins for Go Red For Women, support for the female soldiers at their home in Bridgeport, food drives, Tidy Up Trumbull, the Shredding Truck, the high school scholarship ... the list is endless.

Through different officers and different members, from stay-at-home moms to corporate execs, TCW embraces every woman and every lifestyle. Some of the members have relocated to other cities but still belong, commuting to be at meetings and renew the friendships.

All are invited to stop by, have some refreshments, browse the memorabilia and join Tim Herbst in a gathering to honor the best of our town, Trumbull.
