Home of Pat Wellen
140 Forest Park Drive


Humans have used plants for potions, lotions and medicine for as long as we have existed. Archeological excavations dated as early as 60,000 years ago have found remains of medicinal plants, but not all plants were used for their healing properties.

Join the DOWC as we welcome a Dallas Master Gardner to Town Hall to share a fascinating look through botanical history.

7:00 pm Saturday, March 30th
Double Oak Town Hall

Casino Night in March 30th, and that is just around the corner! This event has gained so much popularity; it has become a tradition in our town, and it's open to the public! Tickets are $25 per person and can be purchased at the February general meeting or by contacting our Community Service Chairwoman, Stephanie Gorman. Seating is limited so get your tickets before they are sold out!

This is our last fundraiser of the year; please start thinking about local businesses you can approach to donate merchandise for the top three Casino Night winners, as well as smaller items and gift cards for door prizes. Table sponsor's will be publicly acknowledged for their generosity in the Cross Timbers Gazette.

As the date approaches, we will be looking for volunteers to help with decorating and set up, ticket sales, admissions, selling chips, selling 50/50 tickets, prize distribution, and clean up at the end of the night. To purchase tickets and to volunteer to work at this event, contact Stephanie Gorman.

Message From the President

Hello!

A big thank you to Chief Derrick Watson for being our guest speaker at our January meeting. He gave all of us very valuable advice on how to protect our home and ourselves during the age of “smart” everything. We are so fortunate to have such a hands-on police chief for our community.

Our February meeting will be a presentation by the Dallas Master Gardners on “Wicked Plants”. The title alone intrigues me to hear what this is all about. We also have an activity planned at Bottle & Bottega in Lakeside, on the 27th. On February 4th, we will celebrate the end of an era as our town’s secretary, Charlotte Allen, begins her retirement. We hope you can join us as we say thank you for her many years of service. Be sure to read more about these events throughout this newsletter.

Our annual spring events will be coming up quickly. Be sure to look for information on Casino Night (March 30th) and the Pancake Breakfast and Easter egg hunt (April 13th) for the children of our community. We need your help to make these events a success!

Looking forward to seeing many of you at our spring events. Until then, Happy Valentine’s Day!

See you soon, Billie
Billie Garrett

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!
