Steiner House

The club meets at historic Steiner House, a Frederick City landmark built in 1807 and purchased by FWCC in 1962. We have preserved and maintained this historic gem as close to its original condition as possible and open it to museum tours and other events. Steiner House reflects the club’s dedication to preservation in our community.

Frederick Woman’s Civic Club’s, Jan Nefflen, Home Life Coordinator,  has been delivering Emergency Boxes each year to the Department of Aging to help those in need.  Boxes are given to senior citizens to have on hand in case the weather prevents their regularly scheduled  Meals on Wheels from being delivered.    FWCC members donated food and got together to put boxes together in December.

Save the Date! February 10, 2018

The Frederick Woman's Civic Club will host its 57th Annual Mardi Gras Ball on February 10, 2018, at the Clarion Inn Event Center in Frederick. This year's theme is “A Toast to Mardi Gras.”   Costumes are encouraged.  Semi-formal wear or business dress appropriate.

The Mardi Gras is held annually to help raise money for ongoing support of community efforts. Each year we designate a local community charity to receive recognition and funding from the Event.  This year the Frederick Memorial Hospital’s James M. Stockman Cancer Institute is the designated charity. Funds raised also support FWCC’s Community Service Programs, preserving Historic Steiner House, and college scholarships.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the evening begins at 7:00 p.m. with the presentation of the Mardi Gras Kings, Queen and Princesses. After the presentation, dancing begins in the Main Ballroom where Unique Dreams will perform music to suit every taste.  A variety of Frederick restaurants provide a tasting for the event.  A silent auction is held as well.  Please come for an evening of fun as we party for great causes.

Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite – 57th Annual Mardi Gras.
