Women of the World (WOW) is a group of international women, including Americans, who gather once a month in Orono around an ethnic lunch, to share their cultural heritages. WOW is a great place to meet women from around the world and the perfect opportunity to learn about other cultures and to taste food from around the world!
WOW members include women from all continents, and of all ages. This includes American women! Young children are welcome to come with their mothers. Membership is open to ALL women in this area of Maine.
There is no membership fee to join WOW, but to help defray meal presentation expense there is a fee for attending the monthly lunch: children under 6, no cost to attend with their mothers; children 6-10, $2.00; and all others, $5.00. When other activities are organized, attendees may be asked to contribute a small amount to help cover any costs.
A presentation usually follows the meal, and various artifacts, books and maps are usually on display.
WOW meets on the second Monday of the month, from September to May, at noon, at the Church of Universal Fellowship, Main Street, Orono. Reservation is not required unless otherwise noted.
