The Scripps Ranch Women’s Club Remains Strong
The year was 1990, and in the spring of that new decade a group of active women strove to make their Scripps Ranch neighborhood even better. They aimed for charitable, civic, educational, and cultural pursuits, and ultimately came together as the Scripps Ranch Women’s Club. Since the inception, the club has successfully fundraised for local schools, the public library, parks and even created college scholarships for graduating senior girls from Scripps Ranch High School (SRHS). Their website cites a timeless quote from Winston Churchill that sums up the group’s mission to a point: “You earn a living by what you make in life, but you make a life by what you give.”
Lynn Parke is the current corresponding secretary for the Hidden Valley House Auxiliary and has been a member of the Scripps Ranch Women’s Club since its founding in 1990. Her volunteer efforts within other organizations are her pride and joy, improving the quality of the community and schools, and that the Women’s Club was “another way to continue that involvement.”
Cheryl Dawley, a member of the SRHS Music Boosters and the San Diego Pacific Arts Foundation, commented, “The Women’s Club is the first organization I joined in Scripps Ranch ten years ago. I was drawn by the wonderful, friendly women and because this Club was service-oriented and focuses on improving the lives of young women.”
The club’s slogan describes these wonderful women best: “Women United in Community Spirit.” They encourage “dynamic” women in the community to join and you can contact the membership chairs Diane Lennert at 858-549-2066 or Marty Salkin at 858-566-0551. They also keep an active Facebook page and detail their efforts at www.srwomensclub.org.
