About the Oakton Women's Club
Oakton, VA | Organized 1977

The Oakton Women's Club is a member of the Virginia Federation of Women's Clubs and the National Federation of Women's Clubs.

Our Club has raised thousands of dollars to support local charitable projects both large and small. We are proud of our members contributions to “Meals on Wheels,” local hospitals, The Shepard Center, and many more, as well as our role in helping the community of Oakton get its library. The Oakton Library is one of the most used in the Fairfax Public Library system and a center of community life.

Our club flower is the apricot colored azalea and our colors are apricot and green.

We meet on the third Wednesday of the month, usually at a member's home. At our meetings we take time for both socializing and the business of the Club. We often have presentations on subjects as varied as local non-profits, arts, and antiques. The sorority of our members helps and strengthens us, both as a club and as individuals. We are young and old, all individuals, and all are welcome. Please join us for our next meeting!

No Kid Hungry

The Oakton Women’s Club current project is to partner with “No Kid Hungry,” and the Fairfax County Public Schools, to help supply breakfast to children in our county that are hungry. More than 20% of children served by our county schools are food insecure. Helping them get a nutritious breakfast will make a big difference in their lives. The Oakton Women’s Club is working to raise the funds to install a “Grab-n-Go” breakfast delivery system in one of our Middle or High schools because we don’t think any kid should go hungry.
A Collect for Club Women
Keep us, oh God, from pettiness; let us be large in thought, in word, in deed. Let us be done with fault-finding and leave off self-seeking. May we put away all pretense and meet each other face to face, without self-pity and without prejudice. May we never be hasty in judgement and always generous. Let us take time for all things; and to grow calm, serene, gentle. Teach us to put into action our better impulses, straightforward and unafraid. Grant that we may realize it is the little things that create differences, that in the big things of life we are at one. And may we strive to touch and to know the great, common human heart of us all. And, oh Lord God, let us forget not to be kind.
