Congratulations to our new 2020 Officers – Joan Mahaffey, President; Joli McCathran, Vice-President; Cynthia Werts, Treasurer; Marilynn Frey, Recording Secretary; and Arlene McCrehan, Corresponding Secretary.
We want to thank everyone who helped make our January White Elephant Auction a huge success. We raised over $2,100! Unlike money raised at our other events, which goes to support our outreach programs, the White Elephant fund raiser is used primarily for maintaining our Clubhouse – paying for our insurance, our electric bills and needed repairs and improvements. This year, we’re exchanging the noisy old furnace and air conditioner for a quiet, far more efficient mini-split unit. We’re also hoping to replace the old, worn kitchen floor.
You Can Rent Our Clubhouse!
From mid-March to mid-December, our Clubhouse is available for Town Residents to rent. It’s ideal for parties, showers, wedding receptions, meetings or such events. Our rates are reasonable, and members of the Club receive a significant discount. For more information about this lovely facility, please contact Cynthia Werts (301-926-1668) or Joli McCathran (301-869-5358).
We’re Working on the 2020-2022 Washington Grove Directory
