Message from the President

Happy May everyone! It is great to see longer hours of daylight and to be able to be out in the yard or garden working in the fresh air.

Even though it is May, it is the end of another Club year. That time seemed to go very quickly. I would like to thank the members of the Executive Board, the Committee chairpersons, and the general membership for helping me get through this first year as President. You have given me much support and for this I am grateful.

Looking forward to seeing all of you at the banquet on May 19.

 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.

Spring Banquet

Members and their spouses and special guests attended our 47th annual  spring banquet on Sunday, May 14th, at Culhane's.

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
