Who We Are
Our members are women 18 and older from a variety of backgrounds who are united by our passion for community service. Members include stay-at-home moms, professionals, locals, women who are new to Simsbury, and women from neighboring towns Canton, Avon, Granby and West Hartford. What we all have in common is a desire to volunteer some time and energy to help those in need in our community.
