Papillion Jr Women's Club
Devoted to bettering our community, one project at a time.
The Papillion Junior Woman’s Club (PJWC) is a civic organization; founded in 1935. While we are first and foremost a civic organization, good fellowship is offered as a close second. Our goal is to provide assistance to those around us who may be in need. A key aspect of our civic support is through our membership in the Papillion Community Foundation where the PJWC is on the Board of Directors. We are proud of our partnership with the Foundation and our long history of providing the Nativity Scene each Christmas season for the community.
Every year the club identifies many worthy causes to contribute our resources to. Our two main fundraisers are a Derby Duck Race and our famous funnel cake booth; both held during Papillion Days.
The fellowship we offer is reflected in the “fun” things we do: Dubbs Bridge, progressive dinners, attending theater presentations, etc. Each of these events allows members to learn more about one another as well as the club’s purposes and goals. While having fun, we also work hard. PJWC is centered in the local community, but it is part of a larger District, State, National, and International organization – the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC).
