The Alpine Woman's Club has long been committed to supporting the educational needs of the youth of its community. During the celebration of the Town Hall's Centennial, in 1999, each of the three local elementary schools presented the Woman's Club with a beautiful mosaic. These gifts are proudly displayed in the landscaping surrounding the clubhouse. These works of art, pictured below, were done with the help of local artist and Club member Annie Norton.
