Double Oak Women's Club

April Meeting

April 21st
Tuesday at 7 pm
Pat Wellen’s home - 140 Forest Park Drive

It's Springtime ladies, so for our April meeting we are having a salad potluck along with a “white elephant” exchange. Everyone is to bring their favorite salad, then dig in your closets, find that special certain something that you absolutely want to live without, put it in a plain brown paper bag and bring it for the white elephant exchange!

Casino Night

Saturday, April 18th at 7 pm
If you don’t have your tickets yet, you’d better HURRY!

You will need your tickets to get in the door, so call Kathy Shake to get yours, and hurry – because space is limited. At $25 per person, your ticket will get you gambling chips, appetizers, beer, wine, soft drinks, an entry into our prize drawing – and lots and lots of FUN with friends!

This is always a very fun evening for couples and singles (adults only, please), and prizes will be available. We will have a 50/50 raffle and drawings for door prizes and gift cards donated from restaurants and other local businesses – so come for the fun, and you might go home with a prize, if you’re lucky!

Table sponsorships are still available for a donation of $100, and your generosity will be publicized. Proceeds will be added to our Community Service Fund that pays for all the services we provide to Double Oak and the surrounding community – like our Children’s Socials, Scholarship, Police Appreciation, and donations to the Fire Department, just to name a few. Please contact Kathy for her to pick up your donation (made payable to DOWC), or you can mail it to Kathy Shake’s address.

If you’ve collected gift cards or other items from businesses for door prizes, please let Kathy know as soon as possible so they can be recognized appropriately on the night of the event. Thank you!
Thank you!

Cars & Coffee Car Show Fundraiser

Saturday, May 30th
A “Cars & Coffee” Car Show fundraiser will be held on that day, from 9:00 a.m. to Noon. The LISD is allowing us to display the cars in the Downing M.S. parking lot and donations will be accepted. Proceeds will go toward the purchase of a new portable defibrillator for our Double Oak Police Officers’ use when responding to emergencies in the community. If you have a classic car (any shape or model) come and show it off! Or just come and enjoy the fun!

For more information, contact Kathy Maybury

Message from the President

Hello Ladies,

It is hard to believe that the year is almost over for the Women’s Club (our year is September through May, if you needed a memory jog). Did you take any of my advice and join in the activities that the Club has to offer? Did you volunteer and help out at an event? Are you considering being on the Board for next year? Or did you just attend more meetings? Any and all of this is great!

We have had wonderful turn outs for the meetings and even formed a few new monthly activities. I believe the true key to making friends is getting involved. These smaller committees, activities and events allow more individual socializing which enables you to get to know someone better. Luckily there is still time to join in, events and activities are still happening in April and May. We even have our 4th of July Float Committee you can be a part of this summer. Open up this newsletter and find the what’s and the when’s and get busy!

On April 18th, it is Casino Night! This is our big fund raiser for the Community Service Fund. You can support Casino Night by getting donations for door prizes, finding or becoming a table sponsor, providing an appetizer, and buying tickets to come and join in the fun. Sponsoring a table is a great way for smaller businesses to get their names out and in front of Double Oak residents. Please keep in mind that the more table sponsors we have, the more money we will raise. See page 3 for more details or contact Kathy Shake with questions. Your help and support for this event is paramount to our Club’s ability to provide for our community all year long!

As you can tell, even though we are nearing the end of our year there is still much to do!

See you at the meeting!
Donna Gilliam

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.
