The Washington Grove Woman’s Club Invites you to our Annual White Elephant Auction on January 25th
In Washington Grove, January is White Elephant Auction time! What is a White Elephant Auction you ask? It’s a great excuse for a good time! You bring treasured things that you’re willing to part with, be they artistic, household, historic, useful, beautiful or just plain goofy, then join the fun as it’s auctioned off to the highest bidder.
This year’s auction will be hosted by Arlene and Jeff McCrehan, on Saturday, January 25, 2020, 7:00 p.m., in their home at 410 Brown Street. Don’t forget that it’s never too early to start searching for those wonderful White Elephants. Don’t forget to mark this fun event on your calendars! This is our big fundraiser for the year, so come, donate, bid and have a ball ??.
January is also Our Annual Membership Drive
The Woman’s Club’s 2020 dues of a modest $15 are due starting in January. In addition to donating funds to help support the Summer In the Parks program, the Acorn Library and the Holiday Show, we also host annual Town events like the January White Elephant Sale, the February Chili Dinner, the Spring Egg Hunt, the May Flower Show, the June Progressive Porch Party, the September Pot Luck Supper, and other special events such as guest speakers and, of course, all year we collect for our Community Outreach programs.
Why I Joined the Woman’s Club of Washington Grove…
We recently received this letter from our newest member, Caitlin Bethepu, and it was so touching that we wanted to share it with other prospective new members:
“I grew up a millennial in the neighborhoods of Midwest America, and my only experience with anything like a woman’s club was watching Doris Day films. So, when I moved to Washington Grove, and discovered there was a current and active woman’s club, I was intrigued.
I initially applied to join the Club because I wanted to meet other women in the Grove. I’ve only been to a couple meetings so far, but it has quickly become clear to me that the Club is so much more than a place to meet other Grove women. I’ve learned so much about what makes the Grove a wonderful place to live: the history, the cultural community, the charitable outreach and the support of education-both school age and adult. The Grove is a unique community and joining the Woman’s Club is a wonderful way to get plugged into the Grove community.”
