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 Ladies,
I hope you all had a wonderful, relaxing summer.  The Executive Board had their first meeting, and we are gearing up for the coming year.  If you want to join us, make sure you have paid your dues so you can continue your activities and our luncheons.
     Luncheons have been planned, and you will notice that there are restaurants we went to last year that are no longer on our list.  That is because we wanted to keep the cost to you as affordable as we could.
     We will be having two mini fundraisers at our luncheons – the re-gifting auction and a Spring Tree.  If you have any items you would like to donate for either, contact Mary Campbell for re-gifting and me for the Spring Tree.  In September we will be choosing our charity for the year so please try to attend so you can meet their representatives, and they can answer any questions you may have.  A list of charities will be found further on in this newsletter. 
     So enjoy the rest of the summer , and I will see you at the September luncheon.

Aurie Bremer, President          352-242-0098,     cell 407-456-4329

This month:
Are you tired of telemarketers calling you???

Go to this government website to take care of it. You can list 3 phone numbers. Takes less than 1 minute to do. It takes about 30 days to take effect but does not expire.
