Phebe Greene Ward 1896

Chapter Regent: Judith Vars

                                Chapter Charter: 1896

The Phebe Greene Ward Chapter is a large, active chapter, based out of Westerly, a beautiful waterfront community in Southern RI. We welcome members from all surrounding areas. At approximately 90 members, we are the largest chapter in the state, increasing our membership by 10% in 2017.

We meet about 8 times a year, typically during evening or weekend hours to accommodate work schedules. Our meetings frequently have guest speakers addressing a range of interesting subjects.

We are active in honoring our veterans, Patriotic youth education, conservation efforts, and genealogy research. As a chapter, we have two genealogy specialists, assisting members with research.

In addition to regular meetings our chapter provides service to our communities in Southern RI including Westerly, Richmond, Charlestown, Hopkinton and beyond.
