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!

They can be arts or crafts (homemade or purchased new), specialty home-baked goods, services, tickets to in-demand sports events, collectors’ items, vacation accommodations, gift baskets, etc. This evening is always well attended and lots of fun, so even if you can’t donate anything, plan to come and bring your friends or neighbors too. All proceeds from the auction go toward our annual donation to our Double Oak Volunteer Fire Department.
