The Neptunian Woman’s Club of Manhattan Beach is raising money to the update its clubhouse at 10th and Highland Avenue to better serve the community. The club purchased the lot on which the clubhouse stands in October 1917 - 99 years ago - for slightly more than $500.
The clubhouse has not been updated since the 1950s and is in need of revitalization. Planned renovations include a new modern facade, state-of-the-art commercial-grade kitchen, air conditioning, ADA compliant bathrooms and more.
The Neptunian Woman’s Club is the oldest civic organization in the South Bay. It is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation dedicated to volunteerism and the raising of funds in support of charitable, educational, cultural and civic services.
Founded in May 1909 by Mrs. Jessie Bell Smith, the Neptunian Woman’s Club started when ten local women came together with a goal of having an immediate impact on the town of Manhattan Beach. Before women even had the ability to cast a vote, they were a driving force behind Manhattan Beach becoming its own city and having its own fire, police departments, and school district. They were responsible for the town's first library and the first school, as well as tree planting, botanical gardens, and coordinating a Boy Scout troop.
