March Meeting

March 17th
Tuesday at 7 pm
Town Hall
Our program for this month will include making Easter centerpieces for Flower Mound Assisted Living and, since we need space and work tables, we will meet at Town Hall. If you have sharp scissors and/or a glue gun, please bring them so we’ll have enough for all who want to work on the arrangements.

Also at this meeting: the proposed slate of officers to serve on next year’s DOWC Board will be announced; and tickets will be on sale for our Casino Night fundraiser! Please sign up to help Kathy get table sponsors and door prizes too for that event.

Saturday, March 28th
9 am to 11 am
We invite all Double Oak families to join us for a Pancake Breakfast at Town Hall at 9:00 a.m. Pancakes, sausage, coffee and juice will be served, cooked by club members. The price for breakfast will be $3 per adult and $1 per child.

Admission to the Easter Egg Hunt will be one dozen filled plastic eggs per child, please (or $3 each if they don’t bring eggs). Sign in at breakfast so the eggs can be hidden while your family eats and be sure to bring a basket.

If you would like to help in any way, please sign up at our General Meeting on March 17th or contact one of the Children’s Social Chairwomen: Kristin Burr or Terry Kennewell
Thank you!

Casino Night

GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!
Saturday, April 18th at 7 pm
This is a fundraiser (and non-members are welcome) but it is still a PRIVATE event – so tickets will NOT be sold at the door. Call Kathy Shake at 214-998-1434, or any Board Member, and get your tickets early because space is limited. At $25 per person, your ticket will get you gambling chips, appetizers, beer, wine, soft drinks, an entry into our prize drawing – and lots and lots of FUN with friends!

This is always a very special night for couples and singles (adults only, please), and prizes will be available. We will have a 50/50 raffle and drawings for door prizes and gift cards donated from restaurants and other local businesses – so come for the fun, and see how lucky you are!

Tables are available to sponsor for a donation of $100, and your name or business name will be displayed along with your brochures or business cards. The more sponsors we have, the more our entertainment costs are offset, resulting in greater proceeds added to our Community Service Fund. That fund pays for two Children’s Socials, our annual Scholarship, donations to the Fire Department and to other charities, as well as various other community service projects we may choose to support. Please contact Kathy for her to pick up your check (made payable to DOWC), or you can mail it to Kathy Shake.

If you have collected gift cards or certificates from local businesses to be offered to attendees as door prizes, please let Kathy know as soon as possible so they can be recognized appropriately on the night of the event. Thank you!

Message from the President

Hello Ladies,

I’m sorry I had to miss the meeting last month, but I know Eileen did a fine job handling the business agenda, and Kristi from It’s Simply Yours was full of information about interior design trends. She said that home design follows fashion, and by looking at colors and jewelry (gold is coming back!) we can get an idea of where home decorating trends are headed. Her lists of 5 biggest mistakes, 5 trends going away, and 5 new design trends were all very informative.

Thank you to Debbie Ragle and her committee for working to propose a slate of officers and chairwomen for next year’s DOWC Board. The nominees will be introduced at our meeting this month and then voted on in April. Also this month: we will sell tickets to our Casino Night event – please see page 3 for all the details, and try to help Kathy get lots of door prizes for the event by asking every business you patronize to participate with a donation.

Spring is almost here and I know we’re all looking forward to the nicer weather it will bring. With that, we can also look forward to several fun events and activities in our Club. At our meeting this month, we’ll make Easter arrangements for the Flower Mound Assisted Living facility near Marcus High School (see the March Meeting information above). Also, our spring Children’s Social and Community Pancake Breakfast will be later this month – please see page 4 for details and contact Terry or Kristin to help out, and be sure to bring your family and neighbors to partake in the sense of small town community that makes it so very special to live here in Double Oak.

´┐╝´┐╝Hope to see you soon!

Our Club

The Double Oak Women’s Club (DOWC) provides a periodic social gathering for the fellowship, entertainment, and education of its membership. Fundamental to DOWC is connecting with one’s neighbors; making contacts with other women for fun and support; and creating a caring environment for ourselves, our children and families.
DOWC supports the community in a variety of ways, including but not limited to; providing a member network for activities and recreation, greeting newcomers, distributing scholarship funds, organizing adult socials, and sponsoring holiday events for the children of Double Oak. Fundraising and membership dues underwrite costs of special and charitable projects.
Payment of DOWC dues entitles a member to all rights of membership, a DOWC Yearbook, and subscription to the DOWC monthly Newsletter. Members receive advance notices of the year’s meetings and special programs. All women who are current or past residents of the Town of Double Oak are invited to join the Double Oak Women’s Club.
