Why Does WOW Exist?

Of Note

What's Going On?

WOW seeks to provide its 150+ 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 16 clubs and activities throughout each month. In addition, several activities are planned where members can contribute their time and expertise or enjoy social outings with other members. Examples of these are day trips, fund raising activities and volunteering at our charity.

....mary....A Word from Our President 
Hello Ladies!

I recently received a birthday card that read, “Good friends provide each other with comfort, support, and a feeling of well-being.”  Immediately, I thought of my WOW friends and how empty my life would be without them. Some of you are snowbirds and will be gone until fall. I will miss you. Fortunately, many of my WOW friends are Floridians, and we will suffer the hot summer together.
Now, let me share the rest of the birthday card… “Good friends provide each other with comfort, support, and a feeling of well-being. So do bras, but they never give the excellent advice that friends do!”  Have a wonderful summer…can’t wait to see all of you at the September Luncheon.

Mary Borgan, President
