History

 

Our club was organized in 1887, State Federated in 1899, General Federation was in 1940. We are members of the 7th District of the GFWC-IL.  We were started by a group of women who formed a library in a house. Through the years this library evolved into what is the current Arlington Hts. Memorial Library, with our meeting room named in honor of Florence J. Hendrickson, Club President, 1954-55.
