WOW seeks to provide its 200 members the opportunity to learn about their community, support local charitable and civic activities, and socialize in an atmosphere of friendliness and goodwill. Aside from the luncheon meetings held monthly from September through May, WOW members are active in 19 clubs and activities throughout each month. In addition, several annual activities are planned where members can contribute their time and expertise or enjoy social outings with other members. Examples of these are day trips, cruises, participation in the Festival of Trees, and fund raising activities.
..........A Word from Our President.........
Hopefully by now you have received your charity letter, and I know you will be as generous as you have always been. I don’t know if you realize that Central Florida was reported to have the most long term homeless people in the nation according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Annual Homeless Assessment Report. According to the Council of Homelessness 2013 Report, there has been a 29% increase in homeless people in Orange County between 2012 and 2013. Matthew’s Hope provides a vitally needed service in our area. Thank you to Mary and Kellianne Greene who wrote and mailed the letters. What would we do without them.
The February luncheon will be at Maggiano’s on February 19th. We will be having a jewelry sale along with a program by Robert Bowden from Leu Gardens. Since spring will be here soon, maybe some of us need his advice. I hope to see many of you there, and don’t forget to send your reservations in early.
With much love,
Aurie Bremer, President firstname.lastname@example.org 352-242-0098, cell 407-456-4329
