Events

The Women’s Committee meets every other Thursday at the West Tisbury library. We Stand Together / Estamos Todos Juntos (WST/ETJ), of which we’re a part, meets as a whole at 6:15 p.m., then breaks into committees from about 6:45 to 7:45. There’s no meeting on August 23. Upcoming meetings are on September 6 and 20.

The other active WST/ETJ committees are Environment, Education, and Racial Justice and Human Dignity.

The library closes at 6 so the front door will usually be locked. Come around to the right and knock on the door to the children’s room. Someone will let you in. 🙂 Join us! Or use the Contact form to let us know what you’re interested in.

NOTE: If you know of an upcoming event that other Vineyard women might like to know about, let us know! Use the contact form on this website or leave a comment here.
