OUR CHAPTER

We are located in the rapidly growing area of Bluffton, South Carolina.
Founded in 2005, we have grown rapidly from 23 founding members to over 150 members.
With women in a wide range of ages and life stages, members live in many different neighborhoods
throughout Bluffton as well as states throughout the nation. Most of us volunteer in various capacities,
both as individuals and as a group. We contribute hundreds of hours
annually to the Bluffton and greater Beaufort area in education, patriotism, and historic preservation.

 

We meet monthly from September to May on the second Thursday of each month.
While meetings are generally during the day, we also have a few meetings in the evening and on weekends.
We also have plenty of other activities throughout the year!
