Sitka Woman's Club
The organization evolved from the Women's Reading Club and The Dorcas Society as early as 1885, into The Women's Christian Temperance Union in 1888, a Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution 1903-1909, The Friendly Society in 1916, and the Federated Club in 1935.
The Sitka Woman's Club is dedicated to serving the community of Sitka by being an organized center of thought and action that champions humanitarian causes, fosters closer personal acquaintance, and provides mutual assistance through social venues that promote the general well-being and prosperity of all, with a focus on women and children. The Club has the distinct honor of being the oldest social organization for women in Sitka, and continues to serve the community to this day.
Keep us, 0 God, from pettiness;
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 judgment and always generous.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses, straight forward and unafraid.
Let us take time for all things; make us grow calm, serene, gentle.
Grant that we may realize it is the little things that create differences;
that in the big things of life we are as one.
And may we strive to touch and to know the great woman's heart of us all, and,
O Lord God, let us forget not to be kind.
