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

Our April meeting was such fun watching and learning about cooking from Jannell Khu in Terry Kennewell’s beautifully remodeled kitchen. It was a great group including several new faces. The General Meeting was an important one as we voted on our slate of new board members. The new board for next year will be installed at the next meeting. I look forward to seeing what they will be planning.

As my term of president comes to an end I want to thank you all for your support. I have very much enjoyed my two terms as the president of the DOWC and I am so proud of all we have accomplished over the last two years. The DOWC is a great group of women who care deeply for the town and for each other. Double Oak, as a small town, offers many ways to get to know your neighbors and actually encourages that. Maintaining our feeling of a small town, in the midst of the suburban sprawl, is a constant challenge. Our attentions and time are pulled and divided between so many activities that we could easily fall into the “nobody knows each other” status. I am so glad that we have the DOWC as a wonderful means to carry on and embellish this tradition! Did you know the DOWC is 40 years old? Talk about tradition!

I am very excited to tell you that we are going to have a float again in the Fourth of July parade this year! We had such fun working on it last year and Billie Garrett has agreed to be our Float Coordinator. She will keep us all informed of workdays through Candy Lamel, our publicity chairperson. Please also sign up to help out the DOVFD that day at the celebration when the notice goes around for that.

This is my last Newsletter note! I will officially pass the torch to Donna Gilliam on Tuesday, May 20th!

With fond memories,

Be sure to attend our General Meeting on the 20th this month at Town Hall as we present our Scholarship Award to this year’s College Scholarship Recipient. Deciding among all the applicants was difficult for our committee as there are many accomplished high school seniors living in Double Oak! We are proud of all of you and congratulate you all on your hard work in high school, and we wish you the best of luck at college next year, or at whatever path you choose to pursue after graduation.
