Club News and Notes – November 2023
From the President
It’s that time of year when our schedules fill up with special activities with family and friends, so the time our members devote to our outreaches, initiatives, and volunteer needs is doubly appreciated right now! Thank you so much for all you do. As always, when reading the articles from our amazing committees, please take note of the date and time of any activity in which you may be interested and mark your calendar, and also be sure to let the appropriate committee chair know of your interest. There are special donation needs this time of year as well, and these items are listed within the committee articles. We are grateful for any assistance you can give with these particular needs.
Our participation in Haymarket Day on October 21 was successful! Several of our members volunteered their time that day proudly representing our club and chatting up prospective members. Several women entered our drawing to win a free year’s membership, and hopefully, the lucky winner will be joining us. All those who entered the drawing were given a goodie bag with club information, so perhaps we may see some of them at one of our meetings sometime soon. Many thanks go to Gale Goodwin for coordinating our Haymarket Day efforts and to all the volunteers and committee members who helped her.
I hope many of you will join us at our DWC November Meeting on November 15. We will be having a panel of speakers from the schools we support – Ellis, Gravely, and PACE West – and they will be speaking to us about their programs, the work DWC members do at these schools, and any additional needs they may have. We have been involved with these schools for many years, so this is a wonderful opportunity for all members, both those familiar and unfamiliar with our history with these schools, to learn more.
Our DWC December Dinner Meeting will be held on December 20 at Brass Cannon, with an earlier start time of 6:00PM. Please plan to join us for this special evening of fun and fellowship with your DWC sisters!
