Ocean Park Woman's Club was established in 1944 in Princess Anne County (later Virginia Beach), Virginia; it has been a member of the Tidewater District, Virginia Federation of Woman's Clubs since 1948. The club was suggested by Mrs. George C. Lyon (Louise) in 1944 to aid with the War effort. During the war they sent Christmas boxes to Red Cross Hospitals, and volunteered services to the Red Cross, March of diems, Marine Hospital, Fort Story Hospital, the Kecoughtan Veterans Hospital and others. They also sky-watched and manned the ambulance during the day. Since the World War II, the club has volunteered for and contributed funds to a number of civic organizations.
