Interested in joining the Avon Club? Go to Membership to learn more and complete a Member Application. You are invited to attend our monthly meetings which are held on the first Thursday of every month, except July and December. The meetings are held at 7pm in the Ben Avon Borough Building at 7101 Church Ave Pittsburgh, PA 15202 unless otherwise noted on our calendar.
I’m so excited for this year and am looking forward to continuing the Avon Club’s fantastic work in the Avonworth area. We had quite a year in 2022 with a record-breaking Flock the Block fundraiser and a return to some fantastic in-person activities. We were able to support the goals of so many worthy organizations and students while enjoying some incredible social events. Many thanks to Tavia Washington for her leadership as our president as we transitioned back to in-person activities and to all of our club members who made it happen!
I’m hoping that this year will bring more of the things that our members love about the Avon Club — social gatherings, time together and of course, the Ben Avon Fall Festival (Sept. 30) and biannual Holiday House Tour (Dec. 2). We look forward to seeing you out and about at both events.
As we celebrated a few years ago during our 75th anniversary, we have a long tradition of service and relationship-building amongst women in the Avonworth community. I hope that all women in Avonworth will consider joining the Avon Club to continue this tradition. Please contact email@example.com or visit our new member page here for more information.
We will continue to meet on the first Thursday of each month except for July. We’d love to see you at a meeting!
The past two years have been difficult for everyone, the Avon Club has been no exception. Nevertheless, we have adapted and found creative ways to continue to work together to raise funds to support the Avonworth community and beyond. With careful planning, we were able to safely have our annual Fall Festival and our biennial Holiday House Tour, raising funds to support scholarships, area schools, YMCAs, parks, fire departments, Meals on Wheels, and more!
I’m cautiously optimistic that 2022 will bring back some measure of normalcy for the club. My hope is that as the threat of the pandemic recedes, so will the stress to families. This should allow more time for us to come together for fun and service. As the weather warms in the spring, I look forward to having more opportunities for in-person gatherings, strengthening our relationships and creating more opportunities to welcome new members.
Thank you to everyone who has continued to share your time and talents with the Avon Club. For those who have agreed to serve as a committee chair or on the executive board, you are appreciated now more than ever. I look forward to another successful year and know that no matter what 2022 throws our way, we will be able to continue to focus on the Avon Club’s goals and vision of Education, Preservation, Recreation and Social Responsibility.
The Avon club welcomes new members and we would love to meet you in 2022. If you are interested in joining, find out more on our membership page here.
