Message from the President

Another Club year has come to an end.  It was great seeing the members who came to the banquet in May and it was particularly gratifying to see the Woman of the Year plaque presented to Portia Oberlander.

I am looking forward to a summer of fun in the sun and enjoying retirement!  See you all at the September covered dish supper.

Have a great summer!


2019 Spring Banquet

Members and their husbands and special guests attended the annual spring banquet on May 19 at Culhane's Steak House.

The club welcomed two new members, Tammy Mardis and Jean Amman.

In addition, the 2019 Woman of the Year was presented to Portia Oberlander.


 Amanda from the Healthy Steps Diaper Bank was our speaker at the October meeting. Thanks to all who donated diapers!

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!

Debra Crandall from Penn Waste gave a very informative presentation on Recycling at the April meeting.
