On February 5, 1909, 30 women met at the home of Mrs. Bertram O. Beckett, and a club, The Woman's Club of Millville, was organized. Mrs. John V. Cowling was elected as its first president and the entrance fee for a member was $1. Dues were $2 per year paid quarterly. The Club colors, green and white were chosen. The Club flower was a lily, and the Club motto: "Study to be what you wish to seem," was adopted. In five years the original 30 increased to 84, in ten years to 100, and by 1923 t0 164 members.
Donations to the 1909 Building Fund are appreciated. Checks in the amount of either $19.09, $190.90, or $1,99.00 may be made payable to The Millville Woman's Club, earmarked "1909 Building Fund," and mailed to Carole Weckstein, 74 Reagan Court, Millville, NJ 08332
