Yard Sale/Craft & Vendor Fair – October 4th

We have reserved the Double Oak Town Hall, and the Pavilion, and park grounds too, for a huge Yard Sale/Craft & Vendor Fair

Saturday, October 4th
Open to the public from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm


Individual space fees charged (see below), and all sales of items donated to the Club’s yard sale space, will go into our Community Service Fund. Proceeds will be used to help fund our donations to our volunteer fire department, police appreciation efforts, two children’s social events, our annual scholarship award, and various other services our club provides to the community each year. If you don’t want your own space, but have items to donate to the DOWC sales for that day, please contact this year’s Community Service Chairwoman: Kathy Shake.

Individual Spaces: We know there are lots of business owners in our town, and many people like to buy locally if they know what’s here! If you wish to rent a space to exhibit and sell your product or service, promote your business, or just sell your own “stuff’ in a yard sale space, contact Candy Lamel to make your reservation as soon as possible. Reservation fees are $30 each (paid in advance) and spaces will be approximately 8’ x 8’ inside town hall or 10’ x 10’ outside.

Please note: inside spaces are very limited.

Then . . . get ready for our next community service event: the annual AUCTION in November!

2014 DOWC Scholarship

Stacks Image 13454
Awarded to Allison Flack
For many years, the DOWC has awarded a $500 scholarship to a college-bound graduating High School Senior residing in Double Oak. With names removed, all applications are reviewed by a committee to choose the year’s recipient. There were several applicants this year, and the student receiving the most 1st place votes by the committee was Allison Flack, a spring graduate of Guyer High School in Denton. Allison is now attending Texas A&M University in College Station, pursuing a major in Mechanical Engineering, and we are happy that our club’s scholarship award will help to offset the cost of some of her college supplies this fall. Allison was presented her scholarship award at the Club’s last meeting in May by last year’s Community Service Chairwoman Judy Messett, pictured on the left, along with Allison and her family.

Congratulations to Allison, and to all of our Double Oak graduates! The Double Oak Women’s Club is proud of all the very accomplished students we have in our town, and we wish you all the best of luck in college, or in whatever path you have chosen to pursue after high school.

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.

Message from the President

Do you know what has made the Double Oak Women’s Club successful for the past 40 years? Participation and donations! I hope you were able to attend our September meeting to find out about some of the things we have planned for the year and how you can become involved in all that the Women’s Club has to offer.
Which one of the on-going monthly activities are you signed up for? Did you sign up for more than one? Take another look on page 2 to see what piques your interest.

October is going to be a busy month with several special events planned. First one up is the DOWC Yard Sale/Craft & Vendor Fair at Town Hall on Saturday, October 4th. Please support your community by shopping with us!

I know we are all busy but it is good for your heart and soul to help others. What about volunteering your time? Our Children’s Fall event is needing many volunteers to make it a success. Members and their families are encouraged to run a game booth, help with set up or tear down. Don’t forget that cake walk and candy donations are always welcome and needed. See page 4 for more details.

I hope this is the year you decide to get more involved with your neighbors and our community. Be an active member and change those acquaintances into friendships. You can never have enough friends. There is something always going on with the DOWC, so please come and join us.

Don’t miss the October 21 meeting. This one will be educational with a Master Gardener as our speaker. Also, come find out about and sign up for special events that are coming up for November and December. Please remember your membership form and fee are due no later than October 21 to be listed in the new DOWC Directory.

Looking forward to seeing you at the meeting!
