Among the activities, NHRW offers are nine educational speaker luncheons from September to May at the lovely Pacific Club in Newport Beach, as well as regular current events action meetings in homes, and an annual social garden party with local legislators. We provide scholarships to graduating high school seniors and foster outreach to youth. We publish a monthly newsletter, the Update, maintain a Web site, and FaceBook page.
