On January 29, 1968 eight young women met in the home of Mrs. R. Morris (Betty) Ellison to form the Junior Woman's Club of McLean. At the Northern District Spring meeting held on March 30, 1968 in Herndon, Virginia, the Club's charter was presented to our founder and first President, Betty Ellison.
In it's first ten years the Junior Woman's Club of McLean donated over $11, 300 to various community projects. It was the first civic club to take an interest in McLean Falls Church Day Care Center and has assisted the center every year since 1968. Since 1971 the Club has assisted with the annual Walk for Mankind and became members of SHARE, Inc. Reading is FUNdamental programs were established in several schools beginning in 1973. During this time, the club also began funding camperships to Camp Easter Seal and initiated the annual Christmas tree recycling project.
