One of Coronado’s mainstays in clubs is the Coronado Woman’s Club, which has been active in the community since 1947. The club in town is a chapter of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs and a part of the California Federation of Women’s Clubs. The Woman’s Club also helped found the Junior Woman’s Club, which many members since have participated in before joining the Woman’s Club.
One such member is longtime Coronado resident, Betsy Vernetti. “Working together with people who like to try new things and have gone through similar experiences – raising kids, maybe having spouses who are away on duty, traveled…the people are great and the fact that they’ve been there makes it more interesting,” Vernetti said of her favorite part of time spent in both the Junior Woman’s and Woman’s Clubs over the years. “I love Coronado. I grew up in San Bernardino, so this is fun for me to be able to walk to the park and be friends with everybody … The people I have met and worked with have been great for me.”
