Savers Fundraiser Results
At 10:00 on Saturday morning, October 9, Club members were lined up in their cars in front of the Savers location. Most cars were completely filled with donations for this fundraiser. As you can see by the pictures our Club donations filled approximately four Savers carts. Savers provided the Club with a receipt for the number of pounds for the various items. The total amount that we raised is $309.23! Great Job!! Looking forward to having another event in the Spring of next year!
Thank you to all the Club members and helpers who participating in this fund raising event.
These are Some Trashy Women!
A big Thank You goes to women from our club who helped clear trash from the roads in the Belmont Bay area as part of the Adopt a Spot program. According to club member Joyce Jolly, the “Trashy Ladies” picked up 7 bags of trash plus other interesting articles in 2 hours for a total of 8 hours. Pictured here are (l-r) Andy Miller, Jan White, Karen Hannah, and Joyce Jolly. (Image to the left shows how much trash was collected!)
We now have a generic “Thank You/Donation Card” to use whenever donating. You present one card along with the donation from you and the Woodbridge Woman’s Club in appreciation for all they do. There are four cards to a page to print out. Click here for a pdf you can print yourself!

Inspiring Women in PWC
Ladies, do you know a woman from PWC who inspires others through either her willingness to step forward, or by her contributions behind the scenes? Perhaps someone who volunteers at a food bank, or helps runaways, or someone who worked herself from poverty to self-employed entrepreneur. We’d like to honor such women in our community on our website. If someone comes to mind, please consider submitting a ONE paragraph write -up (not a life history) and a photo.
Please GET HER PERMISSION first! Send your submission to Rosemarie Fitzsimmons at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your help!
