The Harvard Woman's Club was organized in 1913 with the mission  ' promote friendship and community awareness'. The charter members and members since have been part of the fabric of the community of Harvard and indeed were responsible for shaping the character of the town as we know it today. We remember our Past Presidents and Leaders as our special acknowledgement of their service.
