The Heart of our Town

Spring Newcomers Meet & Greet

7:00 pm Tuesday, May 8th
115 South Woodland Trail

There will be a small, casual gathering at the home of our Hospitality Chairwoman Louanne Eysermans to welcome ladies new to town and/or new to our Club. It’s a nice way to get acquainted and make new friends in a smaller setting, so we welcome you! Other members are asked to bring your new neighbors and a small snack or dessert to share.

Please contact Louanne to let her know if you will attend.

May General Meeting

7:00 pm Tuesday, May 15th
Double Oak Town Hall

At this, our last meeting until next fall, we will present our Scholarship to this year’s recipient and enjoy a simple ice cream social. Additionally, the new Board Members for the 2018—2019 membership year will be installed. Don’t miss this one for a chance to visit with friends and club members before we scatter for the summer! And remember that guests are always welcome.

National Police Officer Memorial Week

Stacks Image 403
May 13th -18th

Double Oak is fortunate to have our own town police force!

Chief Watson and all of our officers make an effort to get to know us personally. They are our “first responders” just like firemen, and military men and women, but police officers often are not shown the same appreciation by the public.

Anyone willing to help decorate at town hall on May 13th can email Kathleen Hoffmann. Words of encouragement via cards delivered to town hall are a great way to show your personal support for the sacrifices our devoted officers make to protect & serve us every day. You can also tie blue ribbons on your
mailboxes or fences or trees in your own yard to express your appreciation.

And thank you, Kathleen, for your efforts to show appreciation to our wonderful Double Oak Police Chief and Officers on behalf of the DOWC!

Message From the President

Hello!

Our annual Casino night was a huge success and we owe a big thank you to Stephanie Gorman and many other ladies who helped to make this night possible. Of course, this night would not be possible without the numerous donations received from local businesses.

The April general meeting brought a fun evening as we had our annual white elephant gift exchange. The gifts were unique and brought lots of laughs and definitely some surprises. During our May meeting we will announce our Scholarship winner. Also, we will be having an ice cream social so won’t you please come and join us as we close-out our year.

As this year comes to a close, I want to thank each of you for being a member of this club. It has been my privilege to serve as your president. Also, I am extremely grateful to the Board of Directors for all that they do. Being a board member requires a little extra work, some positions more than others, and I truly appreciate the time these ladies have given this year. I am also looking forward to my 2nd term as president and continuing the work that the DOWC does to serve our community.

Wishing each of you a safe & fun summer!

See you soon,
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.

To join, complete the form below, being sure to fill in the information exactly as you wish it to appear in the membership directory. If you have a child who would like to Baby Sit, place a star by his or her name and include a contact number, if different from your own. Return the completed form and $25 to a meeting, or drop it in the mail to our Membership Chairwoman, shown at the bottom of the form. Join now, or at least by October 16th to be listed in the new DOWC Membership Directory, which will be distributed at our Auction in November. Welcome!
