The Washington Grove Woman’s Club looks back on 2017 and forward to 2018…..
December is a quiet month for us. As we close the Clubhouse for the winter, we look back over a fun and busy year.
The winter highlights were the January White Elephant Auction and the February Chili Supper.
Spring brought the annual Egg Hunt and our outreach program of collecting birthday presents and treasure chest items for the needy children of our County. This was followed by our May Carnival of Flowers Show.
Summer started with our Progressive Porch Party, which was followed by a great talk by Patty Klein, our own Wildlife Veterinarian.
We greeted fall with our annual Pot Luck Supper, and this year we again collected and distributed socks and toiletries to the residents of the Gude Men’s Shelter. We also delivered hats, coats, scarves and gloves to the neediest children of Washington Grove Elementary School.
During the year, we made contributions to The Acorn Library, Summer In The Parks and the Holiday Show.
This January we will begin our new year with our 2018 Membership Drive. Our annual dues are a real bargain at $15. These dues allow us to share our ever-popular events with the Town. Please think about joining! You can make your check payable to The Woman’s Club of Washington Grove and either bring it to the White Elephant Auction or mail it to The Woman’s Club at P.O. Box 354, Washington Grove, MD 20880.
