Casino Night Fundraiser

April 2nd
This is always a fun event for our club members and other adults in our community, and you can help to make it special by asking restaurants or other merchants you visit to donate gift cards to be given away as door prizes that evening. It’s a nice way for local businesses to advertise their services and support our fundraising efforts, and it’s nice also for our attendees, since they can’t cash in their winning chips for money. Contact our Community Service Chairwoman Kathy Shake if you would like a copy of this year’s donor letter to take with you to the businesses you visit.

April 2 will be here before we know it, so get started now asking for those door prize donations so we have lots to give away!

Message from the President

Hello, Ladies!

I have been busy and almost forgot to write my article, so this will be short and sweet:

The DOWC needs you to be active and I want you to consider being on the Board for next year. There are numerous positions open and job descriptions are in the back of your Directory, so contact Chairwoman Debbie Ragle or Kathy Shake if you are interested. Speaking of Directories, did you pick yours up yet?

The Club voted last month, and we will be purchasing new name badges and lanyards with the Ann Donnelly donation money. At this month’s meeting, in addition to having a local author as our speaker, we will vote on submissions for the Logo & Motto Contest. Come and have a say-so in what’s going on.

Scholarship applications are in the high schools, so please encourage your Double Oak seniors to fill it out, and that includes your neighbors’ senior students too. The deadline for submission is April 1st this year.

There are other things going on and coming up soon, so read your newsletter, come to our meeting on February 16th – and get involved!

See you at the meeting!

Join Now for 2015 - 2016! Why Join the Double Oak Women’s Club?

We support Double Oak in a variety of ways and provide our members with opportunities for social gathering. We all love to meet new people, make new friends and hear fresh ideas. You can be as active or inactive in our club as you wish, but your membership is essential to the continued success of all of our activities. Whether you’re a new resident, or a long-time Double Oaker, single, married, a mother, childless, or a grandmother, 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...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 the Children’s Halloween Party?

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 $20 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, or at least by October 20tht to be listed in the 2015-2016 DOWC Directory (due out in November).

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.
