About Us

The Poland Junior Women’s Club, or PJWC, is an organization of civic-minded women dedicated to serving the community of Poland, Ohio. Established in 1980 as an offshoot to the Poland Women’s Club, the PJWC coordinates and organizes various community events, including the summer concerts at the Town Hall Gazebo, the annual Halloween Parade, the Easter Egg Hunt for the children, and the Lighting of the Village in December.  In addition, we raise money to provide scholarships for deserving Poland High School seniors, and we sponsor needy families during the holidays in conjunction with the Poland Food Pantry.  Our founding charter also directs us to support other diverse projects for the beautification and progress of the Poland community as they arise.
