Club News and Notes – June

From the President

I would like to congratulate the newly installed DWC Board for 2017-2018. Thank you, Rosemary, for taking over the Corresponding Secretary position, Marguerite Madigan for taking over as Treasurer and the newest member of the board, Shamal Beltangady, for becoming the Recording Secretary. As we begin this new year of DWC I ask that each you think about the possibility of becoming a future leader of your club. If it is a consideration please contact anyone of the leadership team; we would be delighted to meet with you and explain the position and the time commitment.

Looking back over this year, I could not be prouder of our accomplishments and the impact that DWC has had on our community. DWC celebrated the club’s 10 year anniversary, received a Congressional Proclamation, successfully launched the “Buy A Kid A Book” program, adopted “Carried to Full Term” as a charity, became a sponsor of the DVLGA Robbyn Rothman Memorial ”Swing for Life“ Tournament, approved a scholarship program for women returning to college at NOVA Community College… just a few of the firsts this year.

In addition to the new charities, we have gained some wonderful and enthusiastic new members , held two successful fund raisers, and now have a thriving Home Life Committee. We started a new and successful Fundraising Committee, we are rebuilding the Art Committee, had two articles published locally, and revitalized the DWC website. If I have left anything out I apologize in advance. All of you ladies have been very busy; DWC members live the Motto: “Service, Strength and Sisterhood”.

It is time now to enjoy your summer and spend time with family. But of course check your emails during the summer… we have a few fun things going on that will be announced. During the month of July, take your coupon and head to UpTown Alley in Manassas with kids, grandkids, family and friends for a fun day and support the summer DWC fund raiser for the “Buy a Kid a Book” project.

Wishing you all a happy, safe summer!
