Message from the President

Dear Club Members,

Thank you for all you hard work and supporting me during these past two years, we are an "EXTRAORDINARY" group of women! With that said, I’m happy to say we did well in fundraising and are able to provide a third $750 scholarship for Red Land High School graduating class of 2018. Lois, Patty, Eileen, and I interviewed the students and I wish we could have given more; so many with bright futures ahead of them. In the twenty-nine years with the club this is my first year to interview and definitely will not be my last. This experience was enlightening and sums up our mission to the community. The thought that we have helped in some way to make others’ lives better. Helping with the homeless children in the WSSD, REDCAP, RL Library, Senior Center, Jane Miller Dental Fund, and community improvement projects solidifies our unity and commitment to our community. The Red Land Area Women’s Club has a lot to be proud of and I am proud of each and every one of you.

Planning has already begun for the 2018/2019 club year; please extend your support to Karen as she moves into leading the club for the next two years. She has been my right arm these past two years, don’t know what I would have done without her. Thank you, Karen!

Tuesday is Election Day, get out and vote! Help support the soup and bake sale. If you have baked good for Tuesdays, set up will be at 6:00 pm on Monday, May 14, 2018. Sign up to work the bake sale is as follows we have 76 quarts of soup to sell: 6:30 10:00 Karen & Deb, 10:00 1:00 Lois & Sheila, 1:00 - ? Deb & Karen.

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.

Thanks, Debra!




We still have 29 members in our small but mighty group. While we all wish that our Club was larger, we have been able to maintain the membership level at 29 for the past year. As we near the end of our Club year, let's look forward to September and think about ways we could increase our membership numbers
