Join a Mary Bridge Brigade Guild

Mary Bridge Brigade Guild members meet regularly to organize fundraising events, participate in other guild events and support Mary Bridge Brigade projects. It’s a great way to have fun, be social, and put your creative energy to work for a very important cause.

Get Involved with Your Local Guild.

Throughout Southwest Washington, there are many thriving Mary Bridge Brigade Guilds. If you live in Southwest Washington, chances are there’s an active guild right there in your community.

Choose a Guild That’s Right for You.

Some guilds get together over lunch while others meet in the evenings. Some guilds meet once a month, others meet more often. So whether retired, still working, whether you have a lot or a little time to give, the guilds offer flexibility if you’d like to get involved.

In order to keep our membership list current, please notify the office of any changes in your guild’s membership roster as soon as possible. Please complete this form and return it to the Mary Bridge Brigade Office.
