The Ebell Club of Anaheim
The Ebell Club of Anaheim, was organized on November 3, 1907, when Mrs. Harry Dyer and nine other women met at the H. A. Johnson home on East Broadway and formed a society to promote cultural education among women. Their motto, Live as if you would die tomorrow; Learn as if you would live forever, is the one we use today, more than 100 years later.
The Ebell Club of Anaheim, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, seeks to advance all forms of culture and promote the best interests of the community. Our Ebell Club is affiliated with the Orange District in Area D of the California Federation of Women's Clubs, and the General Federation of Women's Clubs International, the largest group of women volunteers in the world.
The Ebell Club of Anaheim meets regularly on the first Monday (excluding holidays) of each month from September to June for a luncheon, business meeting, progress reports on community projects, and entertaining or educational programs.
To meet the needs and diversity of members' interests, Ebell organizes various small groups that meet at selected times for learning and fellowship. Over the years, as the interests of the membership change, so will the Sections. We recently have offered hand and foot canasta, Mexican train dominoes and crafts.
Fund raising is an important part of our Club. Members plan and enjoy participating in our special fund raising events. Our "Feed Jalora's Piggy Banks" program supports Christmas gifts for children of families in Anaheim.
Our primary project is the awarding of six scholarships to high school seniors in Anaheim for continuing their education in the arts. Additionally, we try to serve the needs of our friends and neighbors in the community of Anaheim.
Please consider joining us for fellowship, fun, and community projects.
