It's almost time to come out and support our annual auction! This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and ALL PROCEEDS go to the Double Oak Volunteer Fire Department who so generously serve our town as well as the surrounding community. This event is open to the public so bring your friends and neighbors! It's always well attended and SO MUCH FUN!
As always, we are looking for items to be donated for the auction. The items can be arts & crafts (purchased new or homemade), specialty home-baked goods, personal or business services, tickets for sporting events, collector's items, vacation accommodations, gift baskets, or anything that you think will encourage aggressive bidding for this great cause. If you have items to donate, please drop them off with a board member before the 15th, or drop it off at Town Hall between 12 Noon and 5:00 PM on November 15th. The earlier the better as we need to catalogue every item prior to the auction which begins at 7:00 PM.
Doors will open at 6:45 PM, if you would like to preview the items prior to the auction. We thank you in advance for always supporting this great event. If you have questions or need anything, please contact one of our Community Service Chairwomen: Becky Weber – 214-693-6908 or email@example.com Kathy Shake – 214-998-1434 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be accepting cash, checks and credit cards for this event.
Hello Ladies of Double Oak!
I hope you are all enjoying the cooler weather, garage sales, and all the fun activities that come with the new club year.
The wreaths we made at the October meeting are beautiful and I know they will make lots of money at the Auction for the Double Oak Volunteer Fire Department. Which reminds me, if you haven't started on your baking or crafting, the Auction is Tuesday, November 15!
Volunteers and donations are still needed. Contact those businesses that would like to make a donation. Bring your friends and spouses and everyone bring a snack to share. Call Becky or Kathy, our community service chairwomen, if you have any questions.
I want to thank all the board members that have volunteered their time to serve the Double Oak Women's Club this year. See you at the Auction!
Mary Beste, DOWC President
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.
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...the annual Women’s Club Auction supports the Volunteer Fire Department? ... we award an Annual Scholarship? ... we coordinate Police Appreciation efforts? Have you attended any of our Community Events ... like Casino Night, Pancake Breakfast, holiday get-togethers, or our Children's events?
Membership entitles you to a DOWC Directory and a subscription to the DOWC Newsletter for the membership year (September through May). You are invited 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! We all lead very busy lives these days, but even if you don’t have the time to attend meetings, you can still offer your community support by simply joining, or renewing your DOWC membership – and you’ll always know what’s going on in our town!
When do members meet? General Meetings are at 7 p.m. on the third Tuesday of the month, so mark your calendars now. We don’t promote or discuss members’ businesses during our meetings; however, you may (as a member) post your business cards or other information on our bulletin board at any meeting you attend. And always check out the bulletin board at each meeting to see what’s available from other members!
How do you join? Complete the form below, being sure to fill in the information exactly as you wish it to appear in the membership directory. Also, if you have a child who would like to Baby Sit, place a star by their name and include a contact number, if different from your own. Return the completed form and $25 to this month’s meeting, or drop it in the mail to our Membership Chairwoman, as shown at the bottom of the form. Join now to be listed in the 2016-2017 DOWC Directory.
