Well established in Warren was the Federated Warren Women’s Club. Mrs. Harold Mills and Mrs. Clyde Sells, members of the Warren Women’s Club, felt that a similar organization was needed for young women. In the summer of 1966, a special committee, comprised of Mrs. Harold Mills, Mrs. Joseph Kohn, and Mrs. Herbert Schultz, met in the home of Mrs. Kohn with 20 prospective members – thus, Warren Junior Women’s League was born.

The first regular meeting of Warren Junior Women’s League was held on October 26, 1966 at the Town and Country Restaurant. Mrs. William Cunningham was President. Since then, we have grown from an active membership of 34 to a total membership of 97 that includes 45 Active, 47 Sustaining, and 5 Provisional Members.

In May 2002, the members of Warren Junior Women’s League voted to change the organization’s name. The club is now recognized as GFWC Ohio Warren Junior Women’s League.
