Brief History

This social club was founded in 1919 by a group of black workers at the Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company (WEMCO). Incorporated in 1944, it has remained at its current location since 1952. The club has sponsored family breakfasts and dinners for club members, holiday parties, food and clothing donations for those who need them, weddings, receptions, private meetings and other social events.
