Grants Awarded at May Meeting

On May 10, representatives from 28 Wimberley-area non-profit organizations attended our last meeting of the fiscal year. Each May we designate the money we have raised through our myriad events to area non-profits as well as to qualifying students from the area seeking higher education. This year we awarded a total of $67,000. Of that more than $40,000 went to grants and nearly $27,000 to scholarships for eight graduating high school students.

Recently, thirty attendees had a great time watching the movie My Best Friend's Wedding at EVO Theatres in San Marcos. 

 

Tricia Linklater Fields hosted the event and introduced the movie with plenty of fun trivia and insider information. Tricia worked on the 1997 film as a sound editor.

 

The event was complete with Prosecco, movie candy and popcorn. 

Please consider making a charitable donation.

As a charitable organization, we depend on the support of our Wimberley area community.  Your support is attained through attendance of events such as Home Tour and Spring Event, and also through direct monetary donations.

 

Our events have been staples here for decades. The most significant impact of our fundraising is on the students who depend on our scholarships and the nonprofits who depend on our donations.

 

In May 2024, we awarded $26,900 in scholarships and $40,100 in community donations. (Click here to see the complete list of beneficiaries.) Our goal is to increase those numbers for distribution to our recipients next year.

 

We are asking you to help us fulfill our commitment to the community. And remember, every dollar you donate is a tax deductible donation. 

 

Thank you for your support.

The Year In Review 2023-2024

In our 45th year, we continued to honor the goals our founders set in 1979 and had a great time interacting with our community. We welcomed 51 new and returning members and ended the year with a roster of 173. Members new and old volunteered to create many special events and took leadership positions. 

 

Our meetings were held at Messina Inn and at Wimberley Methodist Church. We hosted many guests at our general meetings who enjoyed a lively set of programs. Community speakers provided us with interesting programs including WCCC Publicity Chair Heidi Knight on the use of social media, Paula Glover explained the Master Naturalist program, a new Barnabas Connection mental health program was introduced by Kate Sowell, Chick Morgan shared stories from her new book, and Amber Waken told us about Camp Community. Our Spring Event Co-chairs and Home Tour Co-chairs kept us up to date and encouraged volunteers.

 

A Style Show and Market returned with great success in November. December saw Breakfast with Santa grow in popularity and a festive Holiday gathering of members. Spring brought 26 fantastic Spring Events – including 4 major events - a mesmerizing Magic Show, a sold out Trivia Night, a romantic comedy movie screening with info from a Hollywood insider, and a lovely Tablescapes contest. Another 22 imaginative events included cake decorating with a Food Network contestant, a class on writing press releases from a newspaper editor, and the 9th Annual Mahjong Marathon!

 

Home Tour moved from fall to April to enjoy better weather. A lovely evening kickoff party in a fabulous home was enjoyed by many partygoers dressed in white. And Home Tour attendees had a great time visiting five inviting and diverse homes.

 

The Board thanks everyone, including the chairs, volunteers and participants who continue to participate in our efforts to give back to the community. This year we awarded scholarships to nine deserving students and bestowed grants to 28 nonprofits. We supported the Wimberley Valley with $67,000 in giving. We continued to generously support the Hays-Caldwell Women’s Center through our Benevolent Fund with cash and donated undergarments.

 

It was a great year to CONNECT, HAVE FUN, DO GOOD!

The Civic Club Legend

In the spring of 1979, a group of women in the area recognized the need to reach out and meet the newcomers to our rapidly growing community. The Wimberley Community Civic Club was organized.

The purpose of the Civic Club is "to nurture a strong community spirit through service and financial support while fostering lasting friendships among the members."


Membership is open to all Wimberley Valley area residents. We urge all newcomers to join or let us know you are here, come to a meeting, and then decide if you would like to join our group to help make Wimberley a better place to live.
