A statewide club supporting West Virginia since 1914

WVCEOS is a voluntary, nonprofit organization functioning in cooperation with West Virginia University Extension. It is one of the largest educational organizations in the nation.

Over the past decade, West Virginia CEOS members performed more than 5.6 million hours of service for communities in need.

CEOS program areas of emphasis include preserving the environment, building family strengths, and increasing awareness of our global interdependence.

Through dedicated service and continued education, CEOS members strengthen individuals, families and communities across West Virginia.

In West Virginia, the first club (then a Farm Women’s Club) was established on December 14, 1914. Today, approximately 2,000 members participate in this outstanding program, available in all 55 counties.

There are six CEOS Clubs in Lewis County. Each club meets monthly to provide educational opportunities, to discuss and plan community service projects, and to enjoy fellowship together.

The Lewis County CEOS County Council provides a forum for members from all clubs to meet, to plan countywide activities such as Show-How Day and the annual Achievement Banquet, and to discuss special programs and service needs. Educational lessons are presented in conjunction with the County Council meetings.
