The Heart of our Town

January Meeting

7:00 p.m. Tuesday, January 16th
140 Forest Park Drive


We will have a guest speaker at our meeting this month who will discuss nutrition and we will all get to taste a healthy item prepared by the speaker. Make plans to attend and catch up also with others, now that the busy holidays are over. Feel free to bring a friend too, if you wish, since guests are always welcome at our meetings!

Message From the President

Happy New Year!

It is hard to believe we have turned the calendar on another year - 2018! Here’s hoping that each of you had a joyous Holiday season.

If you were unable to attend the December Pot Luck and haven’t yet heard, we presented a $7,000 check to the Double Oak Volunteer Fire Department as proceeds from this year’s auction. Chief Scott Whisenhunt, Assistant Chief Kathy Heimerdinger and Captain Bob Bowen were in attendance to accept the donation. Police Chief Watson was also in attendance and he had the Night Vision system that the Club helped to purchase. We appreciate each and every one of our Fire Fighters & Police Officers for keeping our town safe.

On the first Saturday of January, we will gather at the home of Terry Kennewell for a night of Gifts & Goodies. This party is always a fun event with time for socializing and often very unique gifting!

Our January meeting will be on the 16th, with a program on Nutrition and Healthy Meals – isn’t this perfect timing to help with those New Year’s Resolutions that we all seem to make. There is a location change for this meeting and it will be held in the home of Pat Wellen at 140 Forest Park Drive.

The first half of the DOWC year seems to always be busy with a number of events for everyone, but don’t count out the 2nd half. This spring we will hold Casino Night and the Easter Breakfast & Egg hunt for the Community.

And our Adult Socials chairwomen are planning another Murder Mystery dinner, which was a lot of fun last year.

I hope to see you over the winter & spring, as a volunteer or an attendee, in support of our wonderful club.

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!
