Our Projects

Our club participates in a variety of projects throughout the year that involve fundraising, community service, and assisting children locally and worldwide.  Additionally, we have speakers at our weekly meetings to explore topics of interest to the membership. We engage in a number of social activities to share experiences, talents and our collective interests. All represent great opportunities for service, friendships and personal growth.

Below are the projects and activities in which we are currently involved:

Healthy Families Graduation Reception


Healthy Families Martin-Okeechobee offers support services to families who may be experiencing stress in their lives that makes parenting more challenging. Services are offered through home visits with a Family Support Worker which may start before or shortly after the birth of a baby, and can continue until the child's 5th birthday.

Highlights of the Program:
·        Promotion of positive parent-child relationships and the importance of nurturing and bonding during the first 5 years of life
·        Focus on parents’ important role in healthy child development and school readiness
·        Links to medical and other important community resources for their families

  • Pancakes and Reading in the Park
