Mission Statement

The Shepherdstown Community Club is an organization of men and women dedicated to community service. Membership is open to all people eighteen years and older, who wish to contribute their time and energy to maintain and operate club supported civic programs and facilities, as well as to enjoy the club’s semi-monthly dinner meetings and other social activities.

The mission of The Shepherdstown Community Club is to enrich the quality of individual, family, and community life by:

  • Providing a community center and a park where all ages can gather
  • Promoting civic interests through various events and activities

The Shepherdstown Community Club sponsors and supports community improvement projects, public service activities and recreational programs throughout the year. At our regular membership meetings, we provide a forum for speakers on a variety of general interest subjects and community matters. With six decades of community involvement, we’ve hosted everything from tin can drives to used book sales.

The War Memorial Building

The historic War Memorial Building, on the corner of German and King Streets in Shepherdstown, was purchased by The Shepherdstown Community Club in 1947, and named in honor of our local veterans. The community makes good use of it for:

  • Civic Events: organizational meetings, public hearings, town forums, and fund raising events
  • Cultural Activities: classes for art, dance, athletics, and music, performances, and art exhibits
  • Social Gatherings: private and public parties, weddings, celebrations of all kinds.

The War Memorial Building is available for rental. The first floor offers a newly restored hall, which accommodates 100 people. The second floor includes a 120 person grand ballroom and a commercial kitchen. There is a lift to ease access for supplies and for people going to the second floor. Modern bathrooms are accessible to the disabled.
