Founded in 1936, The Tuckahoe Woman’s Club provides diverse, educational, challenging, and entertaining programs and activities, for its membership. These programs, coupled with various activities, account for The Club’s continued popularity with its members. Since its founding, The Club’s involvement in the community continues to be a highlight for the membership whether it’s through support of local charities and organizations, its Annual Art Exhibition, or awarding scholarships to local high school students from the Scholarship Endowment Fund. The original facility was completed in 1954 and includes an Auditorium, Reception Room, kitchen, and garden. It has undergone extensive updating and redecorating through the years and is a popular rental venue for wedding receptions, special events, and corporate functions.
