Message from the President

Dear Club Members,

As the year is coming to a close it’s time to take a look back and review our progress. We have some old faithful fundraisers plus a few new successful fundraisers that allow us to work smart not hard:

• Play at Oyster Mill "Social Security"

  • • Soup/Bake Sale
  • • Apple Butter Sales
  • • Issac’s Night Out
  • • Greeting Cards
  • • Darrenkamp’s lunch on the porch
  • Our support of Red Land High School scholarship, REDCAP, RL Library, Jane Miller Dental Fund, RL Sr. Center, Girls on the Run, and the homeless children in the WSSD will continue. The Red Land Area Women’s club is small but we have BIG hearts! We can be proud of the good things we do for the community and the lives we have touched. Again, I’m so proud to be a part of such a wonderful group of women.

    This is a time to remember family and friends and cherish the time we have together. I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year?

    See you in 2018!

    Deb


    The RLAWC maintains the flower beds by the signs for both Fishing Creek Elementary School and Red Land High School.  


    No, this photo is not out of focus.  If you look closely, you see that Fishing Creek was very creative in using the sign as a backdrop to display their student's photos!

    Presentation of the 2017 Woman of the Year

    This year, Deb Trimmer and Nina Myers, were recognized for their commitment to the Red Land Food Ministry, which they lead.  The organization, located in Lewisberry, has the mission of helping all families in need of food who live in the Newberry and Fairview Township areas. The ministry serves an average of 250 - 400 people weekly with contributions of food from the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank and local businesses.  Each have been involved for over 15 years.
