Club News and Notes – November 2022

From the President

Hopefully you all have been enjoying this extra beautiful fall season, and as you will read below in our committee reports, you will learn about all the beautiful gestures and activities our club members have implemented or are planning. Please also take note of our ongoing collections, as well as our annual Holiday Bonanza collection for PACE West School, and help out where you can. If you are interested in participating in any of the numerous volunteer opportunities and activities of our committees or have questions about them, please contact the appropriate committee chairs, or you may contact me.
Our participation in Haymarket Day on October 15 was a big success, and special thanks go out to Amy Scala, our event coordinator, and all the members who helped out on the day to spread the word about our amazing club. With their help, and the help of a special busy bee(Thanks, Mary Catherine Romans!), we were able to attract about 80 women to enter our drawing for a free year’s DWC membership. We will look forward to meeting our winner at a future meeting, and perhaps some of the other participants in the drawing will join us at some time too.
On November 6, our long-awaited Girls Gone Bunco event was held at Brass Cannon. It was a fun-filled day with 60 participants that resulted in earnings of $1600 for our club’s outreaches and activities! Many, many thanks go out to my co-chair Sharayu Tulpule for the many, many hours spent on planning for this event, Barb Garland for coordinating ticket sales, as well as all our committee members who attended planning meetings, donated baskets, donated gift cards, created centerpieces, worked on advertising, volunteered on the day of the event, and more. It is because of all of you that it was a spectacular day that ran like clockwork!
Lastly, our awesome Dominion Juniorettes are currently taking orders for Thanksgiving pies from Buckland Farms to raise money for purchasing holiday presents for foster children. The flyer with information for ordering is contained in this newsletter. Let’s support these young ladies in this worthy cause!
