Thanks for All the Desserts for the Men’s Shelter Dinner!
So many generous people in Town donated desserts for our Men’s Shelter Dinner that we were also able to share some with other shelters in the area. They were so grateful both for the treats and to know that people cared enough to think about them. What a wonderful, giving Town we are!
The Woman’s Club is Becoming Inclusive!
Our Club has always depended on the help of the men in Town in carrying out our events, and over the years, some of those men have become honorary members. In these days of inclusiveness, we have been approached by some men who would like to become regular members, and at our last meeting, we decided that’s a wonderful idea! For those men who would like to join our Club, the annual dues are $15, which can be paid to The Woman’s Club of Washington Grove, to PO Box 354, Washington Grove, MD 20880.
These dues will help make it possible for us to support Town programs such as The Summer In the Parks, the Acorn Library and the Holiday Show. They also let us host our annual Town events like the January White Elephant Sale, the February Chili Supper, Project Linus, the Spring Egg Hunt, the May Flower Show, the June Progressive Porch Party, the September Pot Luck Supper and guest speakers. Plus, all year-round we collect for our Community Outreach programs.

Tots to Teens…Kids in Need of Underwear
Again this spring, the County is reaching out to us to help them make sure that tots to teens, boys and girls, the least fortuante of the children have underwear. Over the years, we have developed resources to purchasing these and ensuring that we are providing for each group, so more than any other project, we ask for monetary donations to help in providing these needed items. Checks for this project should be noted for Kids Underwear.
Where to Drop Off Your Donations
Monetary donations should be made out to the Woman’s Club with a notation in the Memo line if you want it to go towards a specific project. All donations can be dropped off either in the boxes on the Clubhouse porch or in the painted can on Wendy Weisbard’s porch at 119 Grove Road.
