Gateway to the Pines
Polo Women's Club
Our local Polo Women's Club was organized in 1921.
Our club members work together selecting projects and programs based on interests and needs in our community, while benefiting from the expertise and support at district, state, regional, and national levels.

Women of all ages, interests, and diversity are welcome. The club members will find fulfillment in working towards the club's objectives and in the associations and relationships they make in the Polo Women's Club.

Regular club meetings are held the second Monday of each month, normally 1:00 PM, at the KSB Clinic Community Room in Polo.
