Message from the President

Dear Club Members,

Happy New Year to all our members and families!! Looking forward a great start to 2018 and what we have to be thankful for. It is very heartwarming to see how we have come together as a club supporting the homeless and hungry in our community. Our partnership with the West Shore School District social worker helping these children in need is amazing.

First order of business for the New Year is setting up a nominating committee. New Officers are needed for the next 2-year term.

Planning is beginning for our spring banquet; if you have any thoughts or suggestions please contact Karen or me. We will also be having installation of new officers so don’t hesitate to offer your assistance.

Thanks to all of you our fundraising projects the last few months have been fantastic we are right on track budget wise for scholarships. We need to continue to pat ourselves on the back. We are AWESOME!!!

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you in January at the general meeting on the 15th.


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!
