STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"On Tuesday, November 01, 1927, the Portia Club clubhouse was first opened to the public. The building was the dream of a group of far-sighted women dedicated to the welfare and cultural well being of their community. The women of the Portia Club slowly faded away and their accomplishments were nearly forgotten, but seventy-seven years later, the Friends of the Portia Club, Inc., was founded and started an extensive restoration saving the historic clubhouse. Today, we are proud to honor the original Portia Club women and have theĀ  Portia Club clubhouse serve as an affordable center for non-profit clubs, performing arts, after school and other community based programs."
