7:00 pm Tuesday, January 15th
Double Oak Town Hall

Imagine getting home with the oven already preheated to 350 degrees for a pizza, the A/C set to cool, the vacuum already finished with its job, and soft music playing in the background — all because you tapped a few buttons on your phone before you even left the office! New gadgets are coming out each year that are designed to make your life easier, more comfortable, and more secure. Smart televisions, browser extensions, speakers, Wi-Fi cams...these products simplify our lives, but are they also spying on you?

Join us as we learn the truth about these devices from Double Oak Police Chief, Derrick Watson.

DOWC Annual Charity Donations

Stacks Image 501
It’s not too late to donate to our annual charity! Please contact Jane Sayres to coordinate a drop off of reading books, coloring books, journals, bean bags, small bookshelves, and board games.

The Fisher House Foundation is where family members and Veterans can stay while they are undergoing treatment at VA centers and hospitals. Cynthia Garcia wanted to do something after her son Adam was killed in action in 2006, while serving in the Army. She found a need at the Fisher House for a place that kids could play and be themselves during a difficult time in their family’s lives. We are currently accepting donations of reading books, coloring books, journals, bean bags, small bookshelves, and board games.

Message From the President

Happy New Year!

Welcome 2019! I hope each of you had a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends, laughter, memories, and lots of delicious food.

It was wonderful to see so many of you at the December Potluck Dinner. We enjoyed a performance by a local barbershop quartet and had the privilege of presenting the Double Oak Volunteer Fire Department an $8,920 check for proceeds from this year’s auction. This was our highest netting auction to date! Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of this event, allowing us to deliver support to the DOVFD. We were honored to have several members of the DOVFD, our town’s mayor, Mike Donnelly, and the DO Police Chief, Derrick Watson in attendance at the dinner. We truly appreciate everything our leaders contribute to ensure our town is safe.

We haven’t really had the weather to call this “winter” but get ready for spring because we are already preparing for our annual Casino Night fundraiser! Also, save the date: our annual Easter Egg Hunt and Pancake Breakfast will be the Saturday of Palm Sunday weekend.

I hope to see many of you in the coming months as we wrap up another year of fun with the Double Oak Women’s Club!

See you soon, Billie

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.
