We are a non-profit group dedicated to community improvement through volunteer service. The purpose of the ROWC when it was founded in 1902:
   • Help extend the blessings of homes into community life.
   • Open wide the doors of opportunity for women.
   • Ensure a sound body for every child.
   • Eliminate illiteracy while promoting general happiness and prosperity.

Today in the 21st Century, we continue to try to live up to those ideals by:
   • promoting good citizenship,
   • supporting education, and
   • promoting and participating in Civic activities.

The aim of ROWC is:
   • Help extend the blessings of homes into community life.
   • Open wide the doors of opportunity for women.
   • Ensure a sound body for every child.
   • Eliminate illiteracy.
   • Promote general happiness and prosperity.
   • Make human life safe.

Our Pledge:
Holding worthy of loyalty my membership in the Royal Oak Woman’s Club, I will sustain its good work and guard its reputation.

What a Woman’s Club should be...
A place where kindly thought is cherished,
Where high ideals are fed and nourished,
Where charity in all its beauty
Is felt to be a sacred duty
Where peace and harmony abound
And members meet on common ground.

The Royal Oak Woman’s Club means so many different things to its members. It’s a way to give back to the community or to engage in the community, and for others it’s the priceless bonds of friendships that have spanned decades. As a group, we come together to support the community and each other. We are the many faces of Royal Oak.

The ROWC is not just a building. Today, it’s a group of over 120 remarkable women who continue to make a difference through volunteering and friendship. We hope you will support us as we continue our legacy of good will, good friendship and good works!
