“CCA’s Food Pantry is a fully-stocked, self-selection grocery store that serves more than 500 local families every week with more than 27,400 family visits annually. Angels are given vouchers, which they use just like a debit card in our grocery store. Shopping hours are by appointment only, with Mondays reserved for our Golden Angels (seniors).
When more than 40% of their food needs are provided by CCA, our Angels are able to reserve their household income for other essentials such as rent, utilities, childcare and healthcare.”

Message from the President
The November Auction for our Volunteer Fire Department was a huge success! Auction items were plentiful and the room was filled with people ready for a fun evening. It was so nice to see some husbands and new members getting into the action with bid paddles held high. Thank you all for coming and contributing! We will present a check to the members of the D.O. Fire Department at our December meeting. Thank you to fire fighters Bob Bowen and Scott Whisenhunt for being our auctioneers again, and a huge thank you to Kathy Shake and her many volunteers for running one of the DOWC’s largest events!
Along with your own holiday activities, here are a few more holiday themed events you may want to participate in: December 1st is the Town Hall Tree Lighting – bring your singing voice and family for this event. Next, there is the Christmas Tea outing on December 11th – see the Serendipity section under Activities on page two and contact Patty Cooke to sign up. Then, the DOWC Potluck Dinner Meeting is on December 15th at Patti Austin’s home – bring your best potluck dish and come dressed in holiday attire to make the evening festive. Yes, I am encouraging you all to wear your Crazy or Ugly Christmas sweater! I have mine all ready to go.
CCA Food Pantry is this year’s DOWC Christmas Charity Drive benefactor. See page four for their needs and please bring non-perishable items to our Potluck Dinner Meeting. There will be several collection boxes and I hope that my car won’t be big enough to carry all of your donations. So let’s stock up the CCA Food Pantry and help the less fortunate enjoy a
delicious meal or two during the holiday season.
One last thing to keep the holiday season going is Adult Social’s annual Progressive Dinner & Re-gifting Gift Exchange. This fun event will be on January 9th – see page three for details and get signed up.
Wishing all of you a Happy Holiday Season!
Adult Social - Progressive Dinner
This year’s hosts are as follows:
Billie Garrett’s home
Terry Kennewell’s home
Mary Beste’s home
Each couple signs up to bring either an appetizer, or a main entrée or a dessert (not all three!). Also, bring a wrapped gift for the gift exchange. The gift is ideally a gift you received and want to re-gift or something new. The event is BYOB for the entire evening. There are a limited number of participants due to the size of the homes, so please sign up early! A sign-up sheet will be passed around at the December meeting, or you can sign up by contacting one of the Adult Social coordinators listed below. We need your Name, Contact information, and which food item you are bringing (Appetizer, Main Entrée, Dessert).
Adult Socials - Chili Cook-off
Thanks to all who participated!
Cars & Coffee
The owners of approximately 70 vehicles braved the morning heat to display their cars in the Downing Middle School parking lot on Saturday, June 6th in support the club's efforts to raise funds for a portable defibrillator for the Double Oak Police Department. A donation of $10.00 per car, plus donut and coffee donations enabled the DOWC to achieve its goal! Many visitors from Double Oak and surrounding communities enjoyed viewing the diverse group of cars from Model A's to 2015 Corvettes.
Donuts and coffee were supplied by DOWC members and Village Donuts.
Signs and banners for the event were provided by Sign Central of Flower Mound.
Thank you also to Lisa’s Flowers for their generous contribution.
Many thanks to the community for making this event such a big success!
