Message from the President

Dear Club Members,

Hope everyone is staying warm and safe. It’s nice it is daylight until almost 6:00 pm. Plans are underway for Arts night, Education/scholarships, spring banquet, soup/bake sale, and the musical play fundraiser. Plan to attend the activities and help with our fundraising, we cannot do the quality work in the community without your involvement.

The board meeting in February was cancelled due to cold temperatures, black ice and illnesses. The plan was to keep everyone safe. The March Board meeting will have a new location due to the closing of the library for their move. Karen will be running the meeting as I will be in Hawaii visiting Janelle with Danielle and Austin. The March general meeting is still up in the air. The Fishing Creek Community Building is not available and Salem United Methodist Church has only offered a small room and with a high price tag in the past. If anyone has another other ideas or suggestion please let me know.

Officers and chairwomen will be needed for the next two year term. Step up and ask what you can do for the Club! Help to lead this wonderful group of ladies with such big hearts!

Looking forward to spring and seeing all of you in March at the general meeting.

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.
