One on One
In 1908 when Glendora was only 21 years old and not yet incorporated, a group of enterprising and courageous women decided that the time had come when a woman’s club was needed. On April 28, 1908 a meeting was called to order in the Opera House over the First National Bank, what is now 161 North Glendora Avenue. The purpose of the meeting was to consider the formation of a woman’s club. Thirty women attended.
The ladies agreed on a broad agenda of goals, but two were primary to their purpose: the building of a clubhouse and the establishment of a free library. Additional projects were a downtown restroom, clean streets, hitching posts, protection of the pepper trees that lined the streets and support for the “Good Roads Bonds” legislation.
A year later with 75 charter members the club joined the State Federation of Woman’s Clubs and was admitted into the General Federation in 1911. In 1909 the Glendora Woman’s Club was incorporated to facilitate the funding of construction loans for their clubhouse. For over 100 years the Glendora Woman’s Club has remained dedicated to the advancement of civic, philanthropic and educational needs of the community.
