Message from the President

Dear Club Members,

2017-2018 we start the year with twenty-eight dedicated and caring members. We are small but mighty. Our focus will continue to be hunger in our community and West Shore School District homeless.

This year our fundraising efforts will be going in different directions so that we can work smart and not hard. Continue to support our Election Day Soup & Bake Sales, Plays (yes plays, we are doing two this year) at Oyster Mill Playhouse, raffle baskets of which all proceeds go towards scholarships to deserving RLHS Seniors. We will continue our support of the local food bank; supporting special projects such as the school gardens and Girls on the Run; Jane Miller Dental Fund; Senior Center; volunteering at the Red Land Community Library; and helping with Habitat for Humanity.

Please plan on attending the monthly general meetings to be informed about relevant issues concerning women and our community. Plus, it is a great time to socialize and keep up-to-date with friends and the latest travels of our members.

New members are always welcome!

Sincerely,
Debbie Hammond
