Our Members

A Club member is first and foremost a member of the Woman’s Club of Rye. There are monthly meetings known as “Club Day” where members meet to socialize, enjoy a program consisting of music, a lecture or something along those lines. Meetings are not mandatory but offer a way for everyone to see each other. All Club Day programs are open to all of the WCR members and their guests. In addition to monthly meetings, the WCR offers a variety of activities each month such as food tours, trips to museums, the theatre, lunches, dinners, book clubs, bridge games and much more.
