Message From the President

It was nice to see so many familiar faces and several new faces at our kick-off meeting last month! After we conducted our official business, it was an evening for socializing, catching up with friends and discussing with newcomers the fun things we do as a group.

Our October meeting will be the first in a series “The Good, the Bad, The Ugly”, where we will welcome Virginia Hammerle to present on the legal documents we should consider having in place before a catastrophe.

November will be busy as usual. On November 1st, we will hold our fall Meet and Greet for newcomers to our community. Grab a neighbor or come alone but join us as we show you what DOWC hospitality is all about! You do not have to be a member to attend. On November 13th, we will hold our annual Auction to benefit the Double Oak Volunteer Fire Department – this falls on the 2nd Tuesday of November this year. We are looking for donations in the form of crafts, gift certificates, home baked goods, local merchant services, or anything else you can think of.

Additional details on these events may be found in the newsletter.

I’m looking forward to a great year for our Club!
Billie Garrett

Fall Meet and Greet

7 pm Thursday, November 1st
Double Oak Town Hall

Think back to your first few months in Double Oak. Why did you move here? What was your initial impression after getting settled? What made this time and these memories special? Greeting new residents in town is just one of the special services that the Double Oak Women’s Club is proud to provide to our community.

Our Hospitality Chairwoman, Louanne will host a gathering for anyone new to Double Oak or new to the DOWC. This is an excellent way to get acquainted, learn about our Club, and make new friends in a smaller setting. We welcome you!

*Members are asked to bring your new neighbors and a small snack or dessert to share. Please contact Louanne to participate in this unique opportunity.

DOVFD Annual Auction

Our DOWC Auction - which benefits our Volunteer Fire Department – will be held November 13th, so start brainstorming what you will make, bake, or buy, to donate to this worthy cause. Bring your friends, neighbors and, of course your wallets…this is one of the town’s biggest events of the year, so plan to be part of it!

*Currently accepting donations for empty baskets as well as goods and gift cards to fill the baskets. Volunteers are also needed. Please contact Stephanie Gorman to participate.

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.
