DOWC



Double Oak Women's Club

May Meeting

May 19th
Tuesday at 7 pm
This is our last General Meeting until September and a special night too, because we present our Scholarship to this year’s recipient.

We will also install our DOWC Officers and Chairwomen for the 2015-2016 year.

This meeting will have a Luau theme, so dig in your closets and come looking “tropical” as a kick-off to summer!

A few activity groups will still meet over the summer, and you can sign up to help with our club’s float for the Double Oak 4th of July Parade, and you can renew your membership now for next year too.

We hope you’ll join us tonight – before we all scatter for the summer!

Cars & Coffee Car Show

Saturday, May 30th
9 am to Noon
Downing Middle School Parking Lot on Waketon Rd.

This will be the last fundraising event of this DOWC membership year, and all donations will be accepted. Proceeds will go toward the purchase of a new Portable Defibrillator for our Double Oak Police Officers to use when responding to emergencies in the community.

If you have a classic car (any shape or model) come and show it off, and tell others who might want to do the same! Or just come to view the cars on display – with your family, friends, and neighbors too – and enjoy a morning of fun!

We know there are lots of classic car owners and aficionados in our community, so we hope to have a lot of participants. A minimum $10.00 donation is requested as an entry fee for each car you wish to display.

For more information, please contact Kathy Maybury at 972-978-3068

Casino Night

Thank you!
Many, many thanks to all those who helped to make CASINO NIGHT a success!! We had a great turnout and lots of fun, and approximately $2,200 was raised for our Community Service Fund!!!

I want to thank all of the volunteers for their time and energy before, during and after the event. I especially thank the Casino Night Committee: Becky Weber, Kathleen Hoffmann, Rosaline Scheerer and Melinda Fletcher – it wouldn’t have happened without you!

Also, I want to thank everyone who donated food and beverages – everything was awesome!

Congratulations to the Biggest Winners of the Evening: The players each got to choose a door prize from our great businesses who donated many wonderful items. Congratulations also to Tammy Durant, the winner of the 50/50 raffle! Tickets were drawn from all attendees for the rest of the door prize items, so many others were lucky too, even if they weren’t lucky at playing the games.

Please see the list of wonderful donors. Some made donations to sponsor tables and some donated items as door prizes for the evening. All were appreciated and enabled us to add nicely to our Community Service Fund.
Thank you!

Message from the President

Hello Ladies,

It has been a very busy and successful year at the DOWC. I want to thank all of our members and board members for your many contributions and hard work throughout the year. I receive many compliments about the Club’s dedication and involvement in the Double Oak community, and this is all thanks to you!

Both of our spring events were big hits. The Pancake Breakfast and Egg Hunt had a large turnout with barely enough sitting room and about 500 eggs were hidden. Our Casino Night fundraiser did remarkably well and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Again, thank you to those who made these events successful.

Our last fundraiser is on May 30th with our first Cars & Coffee event. Proceeds from donations received will go toward the purchase of a portable defibrillator for the Double Oak Police Department. So bring the whole family, neighbors too, and enjoy a morning of Cars & Coffee. Just think: your donation can help save a life! Don’t forget to express your appreciation also during Police Appreciation Week (May 10th through the 16th ) – our Officers work hard all year to keep us safe.

Even though I am ready for summer break, the 4th of July Float Committee will be meeting throughout May and June. Contact Eileen Loskot or Mary Beste for information and join in on the fun.
At May’s meeting we will say thank you and goodbye to some board members, but we will also welcome some new members to the board – how exciting! Who knows what next year will bring?

. . . I guess we will find out in September.

Have a great summer!

Join Now for 2015 - 2016! Why Join the Double Oak Women’s Club?

We support Double Oak in a variety of ways and provide our members with opportunities for social gathering. We all love to meet new people, make new friends and hear fresh ideas. You can be as active or inactive in our club as you wish, but your membership is essential to the continued success of all of our activities. Whether you’re a new resident, or a long-time Double Oaker, single, married, a mother, childless, or a grandmother, 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...the annual Women’s Club Auction supports the Volunteer Fire Department? ... we award an Annual Scholarship? ... we coordinate Police Appreciation efforts? Have you attended any of our Community Events ... like Casino Night, Pancake Breakfast, holiday get-togethers, or the Children’s Halloween Party?

Membership entitles you to a DOWC Directory and a subscription to the DOWC Newsletter for the membership year (September through May). You are invited 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! We all lead very busy lives these days, but even if you don’t have the time to attend meetings, you can still offer your community support by simply joining, or renewing your DOWC membership – and you’ll always know what’s going on in our town!

When do members meet? General Meetings are at 7 p.m. on the third Tuesday of the month, so mark your calendars now. We don’t promote or discuss members’ businesses during our meetings; however, you may (as a member) post your business cards or other information on our bulletin board at any meeting you attend. And always check out the bulletin board at each meeting to see what’s available from other members!

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. Return the completed form and $20 to this month’s meeting, or drop it in the mail to our Membership Chairwoman, as shown at the bottom of the form.

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.
