GFWC Metropolitan Community Club of Montgomery Co.

The Metropolitan Community Club of Montgomery County (MCC) welcomes new members who are interested in lending their support to local Montgomery County community services and agencies. We support a number of local charities throughout the year through donations of funds and services (see list below). Our membership consists of women working inside and outside of the home who want to contribute to their community.
Also, MCC offers an array of social and educational activities giving members many opportunities to make new friends as well as enjoy the many art, education, and dining venues offered in our area. Some of our most popular social and educational activities include our book club and local museum exhibits.
Please contact us by email, if interested in attending a meeting or learning more about our club.
