Join the DOWC, Patriot Paws and their “human companions” as we learn about the significant training these canine warriors undergo so that they may assist our wounded Veterans. The mission of Patriot PAWS is to train and provide service dogs of the highest quality at no cost to disabled American veterans and others with mobile disabilities and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in order to help restore their physical and emotional independence. Patriot PAWS intends to build partnerships with local, state and national organizations to help develop and support this goal.

Message From the President

Hello!

Greetings! Thank you to Pat Wellen for opening her home for our February general meeting, where we had a presentation by Dallas Master Gardner on “Wicked Plants”. We learned about a lot of plants and had a great question and answer session after the presentation.

Our March meeting will be a presentation by Patriot Paws, a group who train and provide service dogs to disabled American veterans. I know we have all seen service dogs, and I for one am always amazed by them. It will be great to hear the process of how a dog becomes a service animal.

Casino Night is March 30th. This event is always well-attended, so don’t wait too long to buy your tickets! Additionally, we are still in need of door prizes and table sponsors as well as volunteers to assist. More information on the event may be found within the newsletter. If you are an outstanding pancake flipper, we need you on April 13th as we host our annual pancake breakfast and egg hunt. Please contact me directly if you are able to help during this event.

This spring is packed with community events and activities. Don’t miss out! See you soon,

See you soon, Billie

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!
