The Sedona Women, Dames Who Make A Difference, meets the second Wednesday of every month at the Sedona Creative Life Center, 333 Schnebly Hill Road in Sedona. A “Meet & Greet” begins at 9:30 AM with the program following a short business meeting at 10 AM. The Sedona Women invite all women in the Verde Valley to attend these free programs. A donation of $10 is suggested of non-members to help fund the Helen Wolfe Scholarships. The Sedona Women are dedicated to making a positive and lasting impact on the community by providing opportunities for women to build relationships, to learn about the community, to support community needs and to enhance the natural beauty and distinctive character of Sedona. The word “Dame” is used in England as a title of honor – the counterpart to a Knight – and connotes commitment, integrity, passion and earned knowledge. A “Dame” is a woman of substance.
