The club began in March, 1927 when the Monday Club and the New Century Club merged, creating Morris Woman’s Club with 153 members.  While many, many community improvement projects have been completed, the emphasis for the greater part of our history was community beautification.  While this is still important, education, conservation, home life and domestic violence projects have been at the forefront in more recent years.

The club color is lavender, and the club flower is the iris.
