Monthly News and Notes

Club News and Notes – April 2021

From the President

Virginia definitely knows how to celebrate the joys of living on our little section of the earth!!  Our redbuds, Virginia bluebells and dogwoods have put on quite a show.  Be sure to check out all of the activities this month that encourage us to enjoy and take care of this amazing planet, including National Parks Week (April 17-25), Earth Day (April 22), and Arbor Day (April 30).

I hope you will be able to join us at the April 21 monthly meeting, when we will elect the 2021 – 2022 DWC Board and enjoy a cooking demonstration by Annada Rathi.  Annada is a food writer and cooking instructor, who enjoys “bringing Indian flavors to everyday food.”  We will be sending out more information about her recipes soon.

We will end this eventful DWC year as we began – outside!  We had an outdoor social at The Farm Brewery at Broad Run in September 2020.  Rosemary Boettke has graciously offered her spacious backyard for our outdoor May 19 Dinner Meeting.  We are currently working out the specific details, but please know that there will be a charge for your meal and we may be starting a little earlier than normal.  Mary Driver-Downs, Northern District President, will be attending and will conduct the installation of the new board.

In the next few weeks, the Finance Committee, working with the board and committee chairs, will put together the 2021-2022 DWC budget for our approval.  The proposed budget will be sent out prior to the May meeting and will be voted on during the business part of the evening.  Please look it over carefully and contact me or Barb Garland (Treasurer) if you have any questions.

Please share the information you received about “Girls Gone Bunco” recently with all of your friends and family!!  I hope to see everyone outdoors at the event on May 23.  Registration information can be found on our website –

GFWC Dominion Woman’s Club received four awards at the Northern District meeting.  The details are in the report below.  Congratulations one and all for your efforts on behalf of DWC!

In Federation Sisterhood,
