February Meeting

7:00 p.m. Tuesday, February 20th

Our guest speaker at this month’s meeting will be Paige Calloway of Calloway Financial. Paige is a financial advisor who works strictly with women. Come for pertinent financial information and advice, and remember – guests are always welcome at our meetings too!

Message From the President

Hello!

Thank you to Pat Wellen for opening up her home for our January meeting. Mina McAnelly was our guest speaker and she offered good advice during her presentation on nutrition and healthy eating. Mina also provided a recipe for a Crock-Pot Tuscan White Bean Chicken Stew, which was delicious. Candy Lamel has emailed the presentation and soup recipe – be sure to check it out.

I am looking forward to our February general meeting. Paige Calloway with Calloway Financial will do a presentation on financial planning. Some of us are probably good “savers and planners”, but I think it is always good to hear the perspective of someone who is knowledgeable in the industry.

Springtime is always busy for the DOWC. Our Pancake Breakfast and Easter Egg Hunt for children of the community will be on March 24th. Casino Night and the Adult Social Murder Mystery party will take place in April. Both were very fun events last year, so you won’t want to miss them!

Lastly, we are looking for volunteers for our Nominating Committee. We need someone to chair the committee and 2 to 3 additional ladies to assist. The nominating committee reaches out to members of our club to find volunteers to serve on our Board of Directors. If you would like to volunteer, please contact me.

\It will be great to see many of you at our Spring events, but until then, I hope you have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

See you soon,
Billie Garrett

This event is so popular it’s become a tradition in our town and, as our last fundraiser of the year, it is open to the public. Please help to gather door prizes, since attendees can’t cash in their winning chips for real money. As you visit your favorite places in the surrounding community, ask them to donate items or gift cards toward this event and we will publicize their generosity. Table sponsorships are available as well. A donation letter will be available shortly for you to take to them. Contact Stephanie Gorman with questions or to let her know who you will approach for donations.

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.

Why Join?

We support our town and the community 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 events 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.

How do you join? Complete the form below, being sure to fill in the information exactly as you wish it to appear in the membership directory. Also, if you have a child who would like to Baby Sit, place a star by their name and include a contact number, if different from your own. Return the completed form and $25 to the September meeting, or drop it in the mail now to our Membership Chairwoman, as shown at the bottom of the form. Join now, or at least by October 17th to be listed in the 2017-2018 DOWC Directory, which will be distributed in November. Welcome!
