The mission of the Scaly Mountain Women’s Club is to offer scholarships for post-high school education to local students as well as adults looking to further their education. Our club began in 1988 as a group of fourteen ladies and we have grown to over 80 members. We are currently supporting eleven students with their studies and have provided over $287,000 in scholarships since the inception of the club. In addition to providing “dollars for scholars” we support many local non-profit community service organizations, including The Highlands Literacy Council; The Highlands Emergency Council; The Food Bank; and the Highlands/Cashiers Hospital Foundation, just to name a few. To date we have donated over $117,000 to local organizations. In addition to participating in the Art and Craft festival, The Scaly Mountain Women’s Club hosts pancake breakfasts during the
