Message from the President

I am proud to be part of an organization with kind and generous members. We managed to overfill both diaper donation boxes for the Diaper Bank. Amanda Barnes picked up the boxes on January 31 and was elated at the size of the contribution. We might be a small group but we give in a BIG way! Thanks to all for the donations.

Karen, the Red Land Library manager, wanted me to let our members know that this Saturday, February 9 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. is the annual Chocolate Fest. Come out for plenty of chocolate goodies and browse the Library's book selection. The Friends of the Library also have used books for sale at great prices.

Hope to see all of you at this month's meeting on February 18.

Karen




                 
 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!

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
