Get a warm welcome from Women’s Club of Manzanita

The motto of the Women’s Club of Manzanita is simple: “Women helping women of all ages and circumstances make their lives, families and community stronger.”

Established to encourage social contacts of women of the North Tillamook County area, the members of the club lend a helping hand and a smile to all residents (new and longtime) through a variety of programs, events, and service activities.

Most importantly, they are a fun and friendly social organization providing members the opportunity to become better acquainted with others in the community.

One of the biggest ways in which they lend a helping hand to the surrounding community is through scholarship opportunities to young women students.

The Women’s Club of Manzanita -North County Scholarship Award was originated in 2007 by the late Jan Markle to recognize graduating female students of Neah-Kah-Nie High School.

The award is for a graduating, female senior of Neah-Kah-Nie High School and is forwarded to the school of choice for tuition, fees or book expenses.

A Picture of Dan Haag
Dan Haag
Born and raised in the great white north of Minnesota, Dan Haag felt the pull of the north Oregon Coast in the early 90s. Finding that rain never needed to be shoveled, he married an Oregon girl and settled in Manzanita, where he works as director of the Manzanita Visitors Center. He is also a freelance writer whose work has appeared in a variety of state and national publications. He spends his free time wandering the area’s many trails, supporting the Oregon wine and beer industry, perusing coastal bookstores, and chasing his black Labrador, Lilo, along the beach.
