A Letter From Our President....


Hello Museum District Ladies!

I am the new president of the Museum District Woman’s Club for 2019-20.  My husband Bruce and I have lived in the MDA for 30 years and we have been very happy with how the neighborhoods have become “the place to live”. There are many things that make our neighborhoods wonderful, including being a member of the Woman’s Club.

Our first meeting of the year will be at the home of Champe Granger at 2914 Monument Avenue on September 18, 2019.  It is a great time to meet new neighbors and to pal around with friends made at previous meetings.  Good food, wine and friends on a Wednesday night make for a great combination!

We have streamlined the enrollment process.  Membership fees are $40.00 per person for the year.  We utilize PayPal on line and check or cash payments can be made in person. These fees help to pay for beverages and food for our events.  

I will add, the speakers that we have had at our past meetings have inspired me and left me in awe.  Our program chairwomen have done an outstanding job of booking speakers for our meetings.  It’s not just about the beverages and food, we learn a little more about our world at our meetings.  

I look forward to meeting everyone at the Fall membership meeting.  Bring a friend and expect to meet more new friends.  

If you would like to reach out to me directly anytime during the year, my email address is

Thank you in advance, 

Beth Shumaker

Delicious refreshments and wines selected from neighborhood stores will be served. We hope to see all returning members along with lots of new faces, too! 

Membership is only $40.00 for the year. Annual dues can be paid prior to the meeting through PayPal on our website or they can be paid at the door by cash or check.
