DOWC Annual Charity Donations

Stacks Image 472
The Fisher House Foundation is where family members and Veterans can stay while they are undergoing treatment at VA centers and hospitals. Cynthia Garcia wanted to do something after her son Adam was killed in action in 2006, while serving in the Army. She found a need at the Fisher House for a place that kids could play and be themselves during a difficult time in their family’s lives. We are currently accepting donations of reading books, coloring books, journals, bean bags, small bookshelves, and board games.

Please bring all donations to the Potluck.

Double Oak Christmas Tree Lighting

6 pm Monday, December 3rd
John B. Wright Park at Double Oak Town Hall

The Town of Double Oak will welcome the holiday season by lighting the Christmas Tree in the Park! There will be refreshments, Christmas carols, and a very special guest arriving on a Fire Truck!

DOWC members are asked to bring your very best caroling voice.

Children’s Winter Festival - Cancelled

Message From the President

This time of year brings on the hustle & bustle: calendars overflowing with parties and activities to attend, and the DOWC is no different! We kicked off our holiday season last month with our Annual Auction. We had new faces, an abundance of items to bid on, and bid they did! Be sure to attend our December Christmas Pot Luck dinner to find out how much money we raised for the DOVFD!

On December 3rd, our Town will gather at John B Wright park to light the Christmas Tree. Our Club leads the caroling for this event, so please join us! On the 7th, our Activities Director, Jane Sayers, has arranged a group outing to see White Christmas at the old town theatre in Grapevine. December 15th we will hold our Children’s Winter Festival at Town Hall. This event will be from 2-4 pm, with crafts and games for the kids.

Our charity for this year is Adam’s Corner at Fisher House. The Fisher House provides lodging for family members and Veterans while undergoing treatment at VA centers and hospitals. Adam’s corner affords children of these families a place to play and be themselves amidst the chaos. Adam’s Corner was started by Cynthia Garcia, who lost her son in 2006 while he was stationed in Iraq. The House requests coloring/activities books, crayons, color pencils, and games for children ages 4-12.

It is hard to believe the holidays are upon us; the year has flown by. This time of year, I find myself wanting to be with family and friends, to catch up on life, reminisce about the past, and learn what is in store for the future.

May you have a joyous Holiday Season and a Happy New Year.
Billie Garrett

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.

Join now for the 2018 -2019 Membership Year!

We support our town in a variety of ways and provide our members with opportunities for social gathering. We love to meet new people, make new friends and hear fresh ideas. You can be as active or inactive as you wish, but your membership in this club guarantees you’ll always know what’s going on in our community. Whether you’re new to Double Oak or a long-time resident, young or old, single or married – we welcome you!

Your membership fee helps to support the continuation of the DOWC, an organization with a history as long as the town’s own. Did you know that…our annual Auction supports the Volunteer Fire Department? ... we award Scholarships to graduating High School seniors? … we coordinate Police Appreciation efforts? Have you attended any of our Community Events … like Casino Night, Pancake Breakfast, holiday event, or Children’s Socials?

Membership entitles you to a DOWC Directory and a subscription to the DOWC Newsletter for the membership year (September through May). You are invited (but not required) to attend monthly meetings with scheduled programs, and members can also join in a variety of other activities. Activity groups grow and change as do member interests so if there is something you’d like to see, just say so – there’s a whole town waiting for your involvement if you choose!

General Meetings are at 7 p.m. usually on the third Tuesday of the month, from September through May, unless holidays force a date change. We meet at a member’s home or at Town Hall, depending on the monthly program. We don’t promote our individual businesses during our meeting agenda; however, you may (as a member) post your business card or other information on our bulletin board to be viewed by others during any meetings you attend.
