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 25 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.

elaine..........A Word from Our President.........

Happy Near Year to one and all!!!
Time does go by so quickly....seems like we just started 2017 and now its over. We ended it with a delicious lunch at Maggiano's and great entertainment from Sky! His singing put us all in the holiday spirit, and the red and green lights on the ceiling really added to the holiday festivities!! Thank you again Sky for entertaining us again this year.

This month we will be going to the Olive Garden on International Drive and please note the price. Thanks to Noel and Dottie for getting a lower price this month. We will also begin the sale of raffle tickets for our $1000 charity raffle.  Only 200 tickets will be sold at $10 each. You can buy tickets for your friends and family so ask them if they would like a chance to win.  Great odds for a great prize!

So, in closing I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very HEALTHY New Year!!   See you at Olive Garden.
