Potluck Dinner

December 16th
Tuesday at 7 pm
Join us this evening for our annual Holiday Potluck Dinner, this year in the Taylor Oaks subdivision. Bring an entrée, side dish, salad or dessert. We will invite members from our Volunteer Fire Department to share in our feast, and present them with our Club’s donation that evening – the proceeds from last month’s auction. We will not collect anything for a charity this evening, as we voted in October to use funds instead from our Community Service Fund to help out a family in need.

Message from the President

Hello Ladies,

December has arrived with all the hustle and bustle that goes along with the holidays. December 2nd is the Town Tree Lighting and the DOWC will be singing a few carols. Please come and join the festivities that start at 6:00 p.m.

The DOWC Charity Christmas Drive this year will be for a local family in need. We will use money from our Community Service Fund to help this family have a merry Christmas. If some of you still want to contribute, gift cards would be ideal.

We had a fantastic turnout for the November Auction and almost 100 items were donated to raise money for our Volunteer Fire Department. The room was packed and I was happy to see some new faces among the crowd, I hope each of you extended a smile and some conversation. Please try to do this at every meeting, it means so much to feel welcomed.

I want to thank firefighters Bob Bowen and Scott Whisenhunt for doing a great job as our auctioneers. Thank you to Kathy Shake and all the numerous members who were generous with their time, talents and money to make the evening a huge success. In whatever way you contributed, I truly want to thank you!

So, how much did we raise for our wonderful Volunteer Fire Department? I don’t know – it is a secret to be revealed at our December Potluck Dinner Meeting on December 16th. Join us as we present the check to Chief Joe Dent and enjoy an evening of good food and fellowship!

Enjoy the Season by spreading some Cheer!

Community Service Report

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Auction last month! It takes a lot to make this a success – and it was.

Don’t miss the holiday potluck dinner this month, where we will present our donation to the Double Oak Volunteer Fire Department. Another fundraiser event is being planned for 2015 – so watch this space for details in future newsletters.

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.
