Message From the President


I feel this is my most important newsletter of the year, as this is when we look for ladies to serve on our board of directors for next year. As you know, it takes a small village of volunteers to run our club. It is always a pleasure to have new members serve to bring new and exciting ideas. At this time, we have the following openings on next year’s Board:

  • 1st VP – organizes the programs for five of our nine general meetings.
  • 2nd VP – provides beverages and paper products and coordinates general meeting venues and refreshment sign-ups by members.
  • Activities – plans and coordinates group outings for the women of the club.
  • Adult Socials – plans events for members of the club and their partners.
  • Children’s Socials – plans two annual events for children in the community.
  • Publicity – generates monthly newsletters, sends email notices, and updates social media.

If interested in filling one of these positions, or if you know someone to recommend for one of them (but maybe she needs a little nudge or more information), please reach out to me. contact me. I’ll be happy to provide any insight that I can.

Thank you to Penny Reddell for opening up her home on a wet, stormy night for our February meeting! Page Calloway from Calloway Financial was our guest speaker, who offered valuable advice on saving for our future. If you are looking for financial assistance, give Page a call – she will be more than happy to help.

I’m thankful for the rain in the recent days, but ever so happy to see the sunshine make an appearance. Looking forward to warmer days ahead – Happy Spring!

See you soon,
Billie Garrett

Our Club

The Double Oak Women’s Club (DOWC) provides a periodic social gathering for the fellowship, entertainment, and education of its membership. Fundamental to DOWC is connecting with one’s neighbors; making contacts with other women for fun and support; and creating a caring environment for ourselves, our children and families.

DOWC supports the community in a variety of ways, including but not limited to; providing a member network for activities and recreation, greeting newcomers, distributing scholarship funds, organizing adult socials, and sponsoring holiday events for the children of Double Oak. Fundraising and membership dues underwrite costs of special and charitable projects.

Payment of DOWC dues entitles a member to all rights of membership, a DOWC Yearbook, and subscription to the DOWC monthly Newsletter. Members receive advance notices of the year’s meetings and special programs. All women who are current or past residents of the Town of Double Oak are invited to join the Double Oak Women’s Club.

Why Join?

We support our town and the community in a variety of ways and provide our members with opportunities for social gathering. We love to meet new people, make new friends and hear fresh ideas. You can be as active or inactive as you wish, but your membership in this club guarantees you’ll always know what’s going on in our community. Whether you’re new to Double Oak or a long-time resident, young or old, single or married – we welcome you!

Your membership fee helps to support the continuation of the DOWC, an organization with a history as long as the town’s own. Did you know that...our annual Auction supports the Volunteer Fire Department? ... we award Scholarships to graduating High School seniors? ... we coordinate Police Appreciation efforts? Have you attended any of our Community Events like Casino Night, Pancake Breakfast, holiday events or Children’s Socials?

Membership entitles you to a DOWC Directory and a subscription to the DOWC Newsletter for the membership year (September through May). You are invited (but not required) to attend monthly meetings with scheduled programs, and members can also join in a variety of other activities. Activity groups grow and change as do member interests so if there is something you’d like to see, just say so – there’s a whole town waiting for your involvement if you choose!

General Meetings are at 7 p.m. usually on the third Tuesday of the month, from September through May, unless holidays force a date change. We meet at a member’s home or at Town Hall, depending on the monthly program. We don’t promote our individual businesses during our meeting agenda; however, you may (as a member) post your business card or other information on our bulletin board to be viewed by others during any meetings you attend.

How do you join? Complete the form below, being sure to fill in the information exactly as you wish it to appear in the membership directory. Also, if you have a child who would like to Baby Sit, place a star by their name and include a contact number, if different from your own. Return the completed form and $25 to the September meeting, or drop it in the mail now to our Membership Chairwoman, as shown at the bottom of the form. Join now, or at least by October 17th to be listed in the 2017-2018 DOWC Directory, which will be distributed in November. Welcome!
