The New Preston's Women's Club will host its next meeting and program Oct. 16 at 7 p.m.

John Pittari Jr., founder and owner of New Morning Market in Woodbury, an organic food store, will be guest speaker at the Women's Club Community House, 27 Church St., following the business meeting at 6:30 p.m.
