There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about The University Club, a Women's Social Club in Iowa City. We've been around for over 100 years! We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to connect with us.
Our Women With Hammers group has secured a speaker on the subject of Human Trafficking. Deb Oliver from Chains Interrupted is scheduled to speak on March 8th at 1:30. We have reserved a room at the Coralville Library lower level. We would like to invite others to join us in hearing about this interesting topic
To the Treasured Members of the University Club,
I hope you are enjoying a great start to the new year, and I trust that your New Year’s resolutions are still on track! I love the opportunity to set new goals and pursue new activities; the new year offers us a chance for a fresh start. If you haven’t yet had a chance to join an interest group, there is still time! There are literally dozens to choose from, and I am confident you will find one, or more, that would offer you friendship, exercise (mental and physical!) adventure, and fun.
Please do take advantage of the many groups that are available through the University Club. There are still Cultural Day Trips to explore, and luncheons with wonderful programs. I hope that you are enjoying the many opportunities for friendships the University Club offers.
Our fall luncheon speakers were delightful, and our Program Chairs (Pat Skay and Pam Buethe) received many compliments on them. We have enjoyed seeing many more familiar faces at our luncheons, as well as our Interest Group activities, as more and more of us are re-engaging after the last two years. If you have not yet had an opportunity to join us for a luncheon, please consider doing so!
Our Spring programs include a history of the venerable Scottish Highlanders, by Heather Stockman; Doris Montag speaking on the “history of ordinary things” ; and a presentation by University Club member Barbara Santucci, children’s author and artist. All seem so entertaining! And of course, our luncheons are capped by our annual Spring style show, which is rumored to be…. “fantastic”! As a reminder, registration can be done via email with the form in your Clarion, or online, (please don’t do both!) . Our website has the link at www.uclubiowacity.org, and go to the “Calendar” tab.
There are some updates I want to make you aware of:
First, there are new ways to contribute to our Scholarship fund, so please note those in the article by Monica Hayes.
Second, if you are leaving town for an extended period of time, please send your email address to ClarionNewsletter@gmail.com so that we may forward it to you. The Postal Service recently has returned Clarions to us as they will no longer forward them, and it has become cost prohibitive to re-mail Clarions to “winter addresses”.
Third, we are going to pilot a spring/summer newsletter, via Mail Chimp email. While most of our interest groups do take a summer break, some do not. So, we would like to keep you informed of our late spring/summer activities as well as Fall Fair updates via this newsletter. It will be distributed via email, so if you don’t receive it by May 31st, send an email to email@example.com so we can update the records.
As a reminder, due to scheduling conflicts, our Style Show luncheon finale is scheduled for May 2nd, which is a week earlier than usual. You may also pay your University Club 2023-2024 dues at the style show as well.
This has been an exciting year to be a part of the University Club. The ideas, energy and enthusiasm of our members is so refreshing! We thrive on new membership, and new leadership. We have several positions open, so please consider serving on the Board, or as an Interest Group leader. You will find the opportunity to be well worth the commitment. Please let any one of the current Board of Directors know of your interest; we would be happy to hear from you! The University Club is a wonderful resource to meet new friends, enjoy new hobbies, and rediscover both recreation and relaxation! Guests are always welcome to explore all the University Club has to offer, so feel free to bring a friend along to your events!
It has been a pleasure serving on your behalf and working with the 2022-2023 Board of Directors. Thank you for your support in making the University Club so welcoming and delightful! Cheers to a year full of opportunities!
