Monthly News and Notes
Club News and Notes – January
From the President
Before we move on to the exciting adventures awaiting us in 2019, we need to look back at 2018 for a moment. This, of course, is the month when we gather all of the information from 2018 for our reporting to the Northern District. This will involve many hours, organizing information submitted by members. It is important to keep records for the state and national organizations.
But we would like to reflect on our local organization – GFWC Dominion Woman’s Club – first. We have been given a special honor by the mayor of the town of Haymarket. Monday night, January 7, Mayor Leake presented the “Mayor’s Volunteer of the Year” award to our club. Our connection with the town of Haymarket this past year has been strong. We have been involved with Carried to Full Term, Gravely Elementary School, Haymarket Elementary School, PACE West School, Haymarket Regional Food Pantry, the garden around the Haymarket sign, Haymarket Day, the Pinwheel Garden, knitting scarves for the homeless at “Needles in the Haymarket”, cookie donations to local first responders, Friends of the Haymarket/Gainesville Library, and scholarships at Battlefield High School. So many volunteer service hours and donations were given by dedicated, caring members of DWC.
We are looking forward to a new year of service, strength and sisterhood with these amazing women doing amazing things.
Celeste and Martha
