We accomplish Our Mission by volunteering member service and time, fundraising, sponsoring events, awarding scholarships and supporting selected community organizations committed to:
WCSC meetings usually are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month from September through June (except November and February). Most meetings are held at noon at the Narragansett Community Center or at 5:30pm at Brightview Commons.
The Club's April meeting and December Holiday Luncheon & GROW HOPE Awards Presentation are held at local restaurants.
The Team Leader Council (TLC) also schedules and hosts meetings to review the progress of each Team, assignments and the status of on-going activities.
In addition to reports from the co-presidents, treasurer and team leaders, meetings often involve presentations by groups, such as the RI Veteran-Operation Stand Down and Welcome House or by individuals, e.g. Christina Bain from Babson College, who spoke on human trafficking and modern slavery.
