Message From the President

Hello Ladies of Double Oak!

It’s time to catch up with the friends that you haven’t seen all summer at the September meeting of the Double Oak Women’s Club! I enjoyed celebrating with many of you at the annual DOVFD 4th of July Celebration, but I am ready to kick off the 2018-2019 year as we find new ways to serve our town.

Our general meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of each month, September through May. The first meeting will include an engaging and entertaining activity that will allow us to become more acquainted with one another. One of the best things about the DOWC is our team. This year’s board members bring innovative and original ideas for our meetings and events. Our 1st VPs have some great topics to share with you!

Please mark your calendars now...On Tuesday November 13th (2nd Tuesday) we will host our annual auction to support the Double Oak Volunteer Fire Department. This event will occur one week earlier because of the Thanksgiving holiday. We will also host a children’s event in the fall/winter, Casino Night in the Spring, and our annual Pancake Breakfast and Easter Egg Hunt in April. As you read through this newsletter, I hope you find an activity to become involved in.

As I begin my 2nd year as President of the club, I am excited to see familiar faces and to meet some new ladies. I eagerly look forward to September 18th so we can celebrate the beginning of another great year for the Double Oak Women’s Club!
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!
