about ODWC

Celebrating over 80 years!

This organization was founded in 1938 by "the hearty pioneering females who had braved the rigors of year-round living in the dunes." This group came together to forge community by organizing friendly get-togethers. Today, our members gather for camaraderie, friendship, and community enrichment. We are mothers and daughters, business and community leaders, and women of diverse interests, talents, and backgrounds ---all united by a dedication to community improvement through volunteer service.

This group is for you if:


  • You are positive, open to meeting new people, and focused on bettering the lives of those around you

  • You support other women and would love to receive that same support in return

  • You have friends, but don’t always have someone with whom you can share your goals and vision

  • You understand there are different types and levels of friendship

  • You like to have fun, be uplifted, and encouraged

  • You are looking for opportunities to serve our community

  • You might not have much time to volunteer but still enjoy the companionship of other women
