The McKnight Women's Club organizes community activities, sponsors summer recreational programs for our children, and works with the McKnight Village Civic Association in neighborhood improvements. The objective of this organization is to promote social and philanthropic work in the community.
Please note that although we meet at a United Methodist Church, the McKnight Women's Club is not associated with any particular church. We do however consider ourselves a non-denominational Christian womens group, and we begin each meeting with a prayer. We are over 100 women who work together to help improve the local community and together we are a force greater than our individual parts.
