Why WOW?

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.

aurie ..........A Word from Our President.........

Dear Members,
     Summer is upon us and as you know we will not be having a meeting until September.  During the summer months, the club will be looking for charities to present to the members at the September meeting so we can choose a new charity for our yearly donation.  If you have a charity that you support and want the club to consider, please e-mail Mary Greene ( with the name of the charity, an address if possible and especially a point of contact so we can get in touch with them and possibly invite them to speak at our September meeting.
      In August, the planning committee for the Festival of Trees will have its first meeting.  If you are interested in helping out on the tree, contact Betty Fleshman (bfleshman At that point, the event will be only a few months away.
     At the January meeting we will be having our Re-gifting Auction.  We will be looking for items to auction off.  If you get any items worth at least $15 that you cannot use for birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or any day please donate them to this worthy cause.  The proceeds will go to our chosen charity.  It is not too early to donate.  To do that get in touch with Mary Campbell ( and she will give you the information you will need,
     If you have not paid our dues yet, now is the time to do so.  Remember, you cannot join any of our activities if you are not an active member.
     Until I see you again in September, have a happy healthy summer.  If you are traveling, stay safe.

Good news & bad news.  The bad news, I have just been advised that our August venue, Cariera's, has closed.  The good news, Bistro Clo Clo is a sister restaurant & they have kindly offered to move our lunch there.  I realize that we dined there only last fall, but since they made the offer, I decided it was simpler to accept than scramble & find another spot.

Place:Bistro CloClo, 7600 Dr. Phillips Blvd., (Dr. Phillip's Marketplace)
Date/Time:  Tuesday, August 11, 11:30 a.m.
Restaurant phone:  407-745-5045
Restaurant website:
Please note, I require an early RSVP on this, since the restaurant requires a few extra days to schedule staff appropriately.

Please RSVP no later than Thursday, August 6 to me by phone (407-614-7144) or e-mail (
I will assume that those that have already replied will still attend.  If not, please let me know.
