2023 President’s Message

Happy new year and welcome to 2023! 

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 membership@theavonclub.org 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!

Avon Club Foundation President
