Welcome to the Smith College Club West of Boston!

logoThe Smith College Club West of Boston (SCCWOB) was founded in 1943 as the Smith College Club of Wellesley and has evolved into a larger regional alumnae organization boasting nearly 1,000 members.  Our members are Smith College alumnae who live or work in Ashland, Canton, Dedham, Dover, Foxborough, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton, Mansfield, Medfield, Millis, Natick, Needham, Newton, Norwood, Sharon, Sherborn, Walpole, Wayland, Wellesley, Weston, and Westwood. SCCWOB is independent of, but affiliated with, the Alumnae Association of Smith College.

Backyard Party 2022

In 2022, we had several lovely Backyard Gatherings nicely attended by a wonderfully diverse group of all ages and backgrounds.    One event was hosted by Katie Manty ’94 in Hopkinton and another by Diane Kemsley ’83 in Newton.  Check Events and Pictures page.


These parties spawned a number of other impromptu get-togethers including:

  • Estate Tour of Blanche Ames Ames (Smith Class of 1899) at Borderland State Park
  • Pub gathering to see the band Off Label with Smith alum and crooner Shira Doron (Class of ‘94 and esteemed infectious disease doctor by day)
  • Rallied in support of women’s rights at the 2022 Women’s March
  • Smaller meet ups were initiated for coffee, nature walks, and museum trips
  • We also had some interest in an Afternoon Tea

Additionally, our club continues its proud history of sponsoring a Smith College Book Award Program (special thanks to Amy Allen ‘90 our 2022 lead).  Members are often interested in collaborating on community services and we welcome more attendees to our SCCWOB Leadership Circle where many hands make light work… and more fun, engaging things happen throughout the year!!

The Smith bond is strong and in fostering this local network we are all about the hashtag mottoes: #OnceaSmithieAlwaysaSmithie and #SmithiesHelpSmithies.
