What kind of club is the Woman’s Club of Wheeling? Fellow citizens of Asheville cannot say we wish him well. It is no source of pride that our town is called home by one of the many Communists now known to have infiltrated government, as revealed this week by Senator Joseph McCarthy at a meeting of the Ohio County Woman’s Club of Wheeling, West Virginia. What kind of club is the Woman’s Club of Wheeling? In other words, how would you interpret the word “wheeling” in the phrase? Thanks. And this excerpt is taken from The Lacuna by Kingsolver.

It's a volunteer organization for women who are involved in a variety of programs addressing the needs of the community of Wheeling, West Virginia. http://www.theintelligencer.net/page/content.detail/id/553703/Wheeling-Woman-s-Club-Marks-100th.html?nav=506 Back in the days of Joseph McCarthy it was a specifically Republican club. I don't know whether it still has that particular political bend today.
