The Heart of our Town

April Meeting

7:00 p.m. Tuesday, April 17th
Double Oak Town Hall


The program for this meeting is our “White Elephant” gift exchange, so bring (wrapped in a brown paper bag) something you no longer want, so some other lucky attendee will get to take it home with her – the crazier the better, as this is always an evening of fun and laughter!

We will also elect our slate of officers and committee chairwomen for the 2018-2019 membership year. See you there!

Casino Night

Thank you ladies for this great event. Here are some pictures.

Message From the President

Hello!

On Saturday, March 24th we hosted our annual pancake breakfast and Easter egg hunt for the community. It goes without saying that this event would NOT be possible if we didn't have volunteers, so THANK YOU to Heather Olsen and all of the ladies who helped make this event possible. Also, a big SHOUT OUT is due to our Volunteer Fire Department who let us use the fire station to host the breakfast. They met us early on Saturday morning to let us into the fire station and set up tables and chairs.

Our March general meeting was well attended, thank you to Mandy Emanuel for her presentation on RV Living. I do apologize to some of the ladies who showed up for a gardening meeting – our program content changed after our directories had gone to print. Although I know RV Living would not be for me, Mandy did an excellent job of presenting how they make this work for their family of five!

We have two general meetings left before our year winds down for the summer, April’s will be a white elephant exchange and in May we will announce our scholarship winner. A special event is also happening this month - our annual Casino Night fund raiser is on the 7th of April.

In May, we will hold a spring Meet & Greet event for newcomers and we will honor our Police Department during Police Week. Look for more information in this newsletter on all of these items.

I hope to see some of you at our upcoming events and wish all of you a Happy Easter!

See you soon,
Billie Garrett

Community Pancake Breakfast and Children's Easter Egg Hunt

The annual pancake breakfast and Easter egg hunt for the community was a hit! It was possible by volunteers of the coordinator Heather Olsen and all of the ladies who helped make this event possible. Also, a big THANKS to the DOVFD for use of the fire station to host the breakfast. Here are some pictures with more to come.

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.

Why Join?

We support our town and the community 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 events 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.

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.

Join now, or at least by October 17th to be listed in the 2017-2018 DOWC Directory, which will be distributed in November. Welcome!
