The Estes Park Woman’s Club is proud to support local organizations within Estes Park and the surrounding communities.
Estes Park Elementary School
Members support the school by volunteering in the reading program and annual book sale. Money is annually set aside to give to the school for specific projects. Clothing items are routinely donated from members to give to students in need.
Estes Valley Public Library
Started the Town library with a few books in a part-time schoolroom. When the Town donated a lot in Bond Park, the club raised $5,000 to build and furnish the building. The women raised funds and operated the library for 53 years before transferring it to the town. EPWC continues to support the library, most recently donated money to have a fireplace installed in the new “Quiet Room” on the second floor.
Rocky Mountain National Park
Supported establishment of Rocky Mountain National Park and provided land for the Park Headquarters. The original Deer Mountain trail was built by the members. The Club still supports the Park through various venues and when a specific need arises. As a result of the 2013 flood the Club donated $2,000 for signage at the Glacier Basin Campground to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of RMNP and the partnership with the Woman’s Club.
Town of Estes Park
Served as the Town Chamber of Commerce and government before either were in existence. The Club sponsored the welcoming sign at the Knoll-Willows Centennial Open Space Project ($1,500.00) . See remarks by Pat Pickering at the town’s Centennial Celebration in 2017 under 2017-2018 Pat Pickering. Previously $2,000 was donated to rebuild the bird sanctuary after the 2013 flood. The Club continues to support the Town through conservation and civic improvement projects.
