February Meeting

February 17th
Tuesday at 7 pm
321 Waketon Road
Our guest speaker this month is Kristi Herring, from It’s Simply Yours in Flower Mound. She helps clients rearrange and redesign rooms using mostly what they already have. Maybe you are tired of seeing the same old setup in your house, or maybe you just can't figure out how to make your home "flow" better. Come see what Kristi can do and bring a friend. It should be interesting and informative, so join us at Mary Beste’s house for this fun meeting, with convenient parking just across the street in the Downing Middle School parking lot.

Message from the President

Hello Ladies,
Our speaker last month, John Bledsoe, was funny and informative. It was very nice of him to give us all a copy of his book. I am looking forward to reading it and, with the help of Rob Messett, maybe my future will be more secure. February’s meeting should also be another great evening. Who couldn’t use a little help redecorating – especially with items we already own!

We have had a wonderful turn out at our meetings and it is such a good feeling to see everyone talking, smiling and enjoying themselves. They say three secrets to happiness are something to do, something to look forward to, and someone to love. It may be a little hard to believe, but the DOWC can be a source of happiness.

Something to do: Become an active member and serve on the Board. Nominations for next year’s Board are taking place now. There are several positions to choose from – just contact Debbie Ragle, our Nominating Committee Chairwoman, if you would like to serve.

Something to look forward to: A variety of ongoing activities are listed on page 2, plus periodic committee work like Children’s Socials and/or Community Service, and our monthly meetings too.

Someone to love: Sisterly love and friendship are all around us in the DOWC. A smile, whether given or received, is a wonderful way to express love and happiness.

I hope this inspires you to become an active member. Please come and join us in spreading the secrets to happiness!

See you at the meeting.

Children’s Social - Pancake Breakfast and Easter Egg Hunt

Stacks Image 4161
Saturday, March 28th
Planning has begun for our annual spring Children’s Social and we are bringing back the Family Pancake Breakfast too!

To limit donations from our members, admission to the Easter Egg Hunt will be 12 filled plastic eggs per child, which is what we had done for many years in the past. Since some will undoubtedly show up empty-handed, we will still fill some eggs with candy to cover those, so candy donations will still be welcomed.

For breakfast, we will serve pancakes, sausage, coffee and juice, and we will cook it ourselves rather than depending on donations from restaurants. The price will be $3 per adult and $1 per child.

If you would like to help cook food that day, or serve, or if you have a pancake griddle or crock pot (to keep sausage warm) or other items to loan, or would like to help in any other way, please sign up at our General Meeting on February 17th or contact one of the Children’s Social Chairwomen:

Kristin Burr or Terry Kennewell

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.
