Service and Friendship
Scholarship packets have been delivered to the 6 schools in Eastern Prince William County.
Our High schools are definitely very secure!
The nurse at Kilby sent thanks for the children's clothing that had been delivered. They seem to have an ongoing need for them. Long pants with elastic waist bands, underwear, t shirts and long sleeved shirts and sweaters, back packs. I will have a collection basket at the next meeting if you want to donate any items.
Kilby has their book fair coming up in from April 9-13th. They could use help during the day and in the evening on Thursday the 12th. In help I mean as the classes come in during the day , sometimes children can be helped find books they might like.
Thank you for your ongoing donations of small change and Box Tops.
As winter thankfully draws to a close we are reminded of a new season and our commitment to our Woodbridge Woman's Club! If you haven't done so already, there is still time to volunteer in any of our successful programs aimed at giving back to our community of Woodbridge! Also, it is never too late to invite a friend to come to one of our meetings with the hope of becoming a new member. Please feel free to contact me if you would like me to follow up with information to help educate that new person as to our mission. Remember our club motto "Service and Friendship" and thank you to all who serve so loyally! Looking forward to seeing you at our 19 March 2018 meeting!

From the President’s Pen
Spring is just a few short days away. Just like our gardens, we need to breathe some new life into our club activities. We will be discussing new ideas at our meeting on March 19. I'm sure we will continue giving scholarships to students. Last year we talked about giving a scholarship to a victim of domestic violence or a homeless woman. How can we accomplish this? The pillows and hats are popular projects. We may need more money and volunteers to make them. What new project can we start to help the community? Maybe a new fundraiser? All ideas are welcome.
Now for a bit of trivia. The first documentation of the legend of the Easter Bunny dates to the 1500s. By the 1700s these people were immigrating to the Americas and brought their deeply routed traditions with them. Who were they?
The 2018 WWC Fashion Show will be on October 27th at Old Hickory Club and we are going to have a meeting on Tuesday, March 13th at 1:00 pm at SECURCORP located at 1529 Old Bridge Rd, Suite #102 and would like all interested parties to attend.
