President’s Corner:

Hello HWC Members!

 

Happy Thanksgiving! This is the time of year when we ponder what we are grateful for and count our blessings.  As I am preparing for my big feast, I am very blessed and grateful for all of you; for the friends that I have made through the club; for the opportunities to serve you and others in our community; for the ability to hear our guests tell their stories and needs. I am also thankful for the interesting places we visited together and the opportunities to get to know the community better.  Joining the club five years ago (with my sister beside me), we had so much fun together in the activity groups; in fact, between the two of us, I think we hit every group! I really don’t know who or where I would be now if it weren’t for the Hollis Woman’s Club.  This club gave me a sense of belonging in the community. I am thankful to you for including us and making us feel special and needed. I hope I’ve taken that care and concern and passed it back to you.   Each one of us is a valued member; we are the many parts that make it whole.  Thank you for joining the Hollis Women’s Club and making it special.

Thank you to all the ladies that helped Ginny Brooks put together the Pot Luck on Saturday the 8th.  Noreen Polus did a fabulous job arranging our entertainment for the evening.  The Hollis Brookline Honors Jazz Band did a fantastic job. They really got the groove on and we had so much fun, some even danced!

Jeanne Cleveland and her troop made the Lawrence Barn an indoor Yard Sale raising over $870.00 in one Saturday morning. Thank you all who donated their treasures. Jeanne wishes to thank all of those that volunteered as well.  We could not have done it without your donations and baked goods.  

 

Now don’t forget our next December meeting is the Holiday Expo where fellow members display and show off their wares. It is a time where you can do a little early Christmas shopping and get some very nice handmade items.  If you would like to participate, please give Marilene Sawif a call. Rachel Teiman is orchestrating the holiday cookie exchange.  Feel free to give her a call if you would like to participate in the cookie swap. There is always a delicious assortment of cookies. So stop by with your friends, grab a sweet, a cup of coffee, gossip and shop!

Fondly,

Pot Luck Supper

 

Thank you so much to the nine Ladies and three husbands that set-up and the nine ladies and three husbands who cleaned-up (they were not all the same). We could not have held such a great evening without you!  You were the best of the best!  Each and every one of you was terrific, as you brought your own special dish to share with your friends. We had a great evening of celebration and fun! We raised $404.00 for the Sheppard's Fund and we loved and enjoyed the Hollis Brookline Honors Jazz Band.  I can't wait until next year! How about you?  - Ginny
