WARRIOR RUN WOMAN’S CLUB

The Warrior Run Junior Woman’s Club was founded in 1973 by Ellen Cook. Ellen had attended a similar meeting of women while living in Lewisburg and after moving to Watsontown decided to create an outlet for other young mothers who were interested in helping the community. The club began with approximately twenty-five members. In 1982 with the membership’s median age rising the club formally dropped the “Junior” from their name. The main purpose of the organization has always been to help the community by raising funds that could in turn be used to help the community in the Warrior Run vicinity. In 1982 through the efforts of Terry Bieber, chairperson and assistance from of club members a program called Neighbors Helping Neighbors was established to help the members of the community who had lost their jobs when the trucking companies in the area layed off countless people. The club continues to support Neighbors Helping Neighbors by collecting donations of food and monetary gifts.
