Pine Castle Woman's Club

The Heart of The Community Since 1940 and Home of the Corner Rose Tea Room


A Note from our President

What an honor it is to serve as President of the Pine Castle Woman’s Club, the heart of the Community.

Members have been asked to focus on Chandler’s five C’s this year as we move the Club forward which includes: Commitment, Continued Education, Communication, Creativity and Connectivity.

In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” I’m counting on each of YOU!

Love, Respect, and Kindness for All,

Sandra P. Chandler, CAP
