Nottingham Forest Women’s Club

Friends and Neighbors Since 1970

Welcome to the NFWC

In August of 1966, the Nottingham Forest Garden Club was organized by a group of like-minded neighborhood ladies who wanted camaraderie and bonded over their shared love of gardening. In 1970, it was expanded to include a variety of other topics of interest and renamed to what we know today as the Nottingham Forest Women’s Club. 

Today, we offer monthly meetings with a variety of topics -- from women's health and local history to hands-on art and philanthropy.  Our interest groups include book clubs (day and night) pickleball, happy hours, games and more. Other activities include philanthropy opportunities, field trips and our annual Holiday Home Tour.

Philanthropy Update & Upcoming Opportunity

Success! Thornwood Elementary Book & Coffee Drives

Thank you to all who donated items and/or money to stock the Teacher’s Lounge at Thornwood Elementary (TWE). As many of you know, TWE gets very little parental support and does not have a PTA. Community support makes the difference for this school. On September 28, 2021, thanks to your generosity, I delivered a carload of over 500 Coffee pods, tea bags, hot cocoa, snacks, bars, creamers, and sweeteners. Vicki Lullo, the Principal, was over-the-moon thrilled. 

Additionally, thanks again to your generosity, we were able to buy books from Teacher Wish Lists for the PreK and Kinder classrooms from the School Book Fair. This group is the best!

Upcoming Philanthropy Opportunity

Stay tuned for more details about a group volunteer opportunity at Belong Kitchen, a non-profit begun by Kim Brown to give young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities a chance for dignified, paid employment and some independence. Located on Gaylord, near Treebeard’s, these workers, along with volunteer help, make and sell grab-and-go dinners, coffee, and baked goods. Watch our FB page and/or email me for details about a group volunteer event. In the meantime, check them out. The menu changes weekly and the meals look SO good!
