Our History

81437 original
Templeton Women's Charitable Club

Established in 1913, the original name was the Women's Civic Improvement Club and its purpose was to improve the town and "keep the women working in harmony.” Approximately 20 women were the original members.
Meetings were held in members' homes for the first two years. In 1914, the Templeton Board of Trade donated a lot on the corner of 6th and Main Street, where a two-room bungalow was proposed as the new clubhouse. The building was to be 450 square feet and would cost $200. Many of the building supplies and all of the labor were donated by the community.
On January 6, 1915 the Women's Club held their first meeting in the new clubhouse. This building went on to serve the community as a library, a meeting place for other groups, and a day care center.
In May of 1991, Lucille Butler, a club member, left the Women's Club a donation of $200,000. The gift was especially welcomed as the little old clubhouse was showing its age with sagging floors and roof problems. This generous gift enabled the Templeton Women's Club to build the present structure which was finished in the mid-1990's.
Following the completion of the new clubhouse, the Women's' Club gave the clubhouse to the Templeton Community Service District for the public's use. In return, the Women's Club received lifetime use of the facility for monthly meetings.
