The Woman's Club of Albany is one of the oldest not-for-profit community organizations in the Capital Region. We donate to local organizations serving the needs of women and children, volunteer for a wide range of projects, and offer opportunities for new social, professional and community connections.
Join us for a relaxing and creative Member Monday as our new member Linda Fasano demonstrates Zentangle. Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. You create tangles with combinations of dots, lines, simple curves, S-curves and orbs. These patterns are drawn on small pieces of paper called "tiles." The tiles can be assembled into mosaics. Zentangle art is non-representational and unplanned, so you can focus on each stroke and not worry about the result. No prior art experience is necessary. If you are interested in purchasing the starter kit you'll be using, bring $5 to take it home with you.
Pot Luck Supper - bring a dish or dessert to share - 6:30 p.m.
Zentangle activity - in the ballroom at 7:00 p.m.

Fulfilling Our Mission of Community Service
We helped "Stuff the Bus" with donations to Things of My Very Own.
At April Member Monday, members generously donated food to stock the pantry at the South End Children's Cafe.
Members and guests made nearly 70 cards for chronically ill children.
The Woman's Club of Albany remains open for meetings and rentals. The Board of Directors voted that the WCA will no longer require masks or proof of full vaccination for anyone entering the building, effective Feb. 23, 2022. The Board will continue to revisit this policy monthly. Prospective renters should contact the Club at firstname.lastname@example.org any questions.
four years of diligent and very hard work by a band of dedicated
members, the Woman’s Club of Albany has received a $148,500 state grant
to help pay for long-awaited exterior repairs to our home.
grant was awarded through the state’s Regional Economic Development
is the third grant the WCA has received in recent months to help
realize our goal of repairing the main entrance & front porch,
stabilizing the side entrance, resolving water infiltration & installing a ramp to make the building handicap accessible. As we celebrate
100 years of home ownership, it is gratifying to know we can fulfill our
mission as stewards of this beautiful house.
