The new location marks a departure from Oneonta Congregational Church, where the monthly Monday meetings were held for many years. A dozen local leaders with the purpose of providing supportive fellowship in the community founded the club in 1923.

As one of the organization’s most distinguished contributions, each year three $10,000 scholarships are presented to South Pasadena High School seniors.
