Message from the President

Dear Club Members,

Hello ladies.

Hope you all are having a great summer. I am looking forward to a new Club year -- can't wait to find out what types of programs the various Committees have planned.

Our group is a lot like that little bunny that advertises batteries -- we keep going and going and going. I'm proud of the hard work that we have all done in the past and will continue to do.

The September meeting is our annual covered dish social. Bring your best potluck dish to share and place settings for yourself. Beverages will be provided by the Executive Board.

Let's make the coming year one of our best! See you on Monday, September 17!

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.

 

The evening included cocktails, dinner, presentation of Woman of the Year Award.




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

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
