Fall Mum Sale!

Image may contain: text

The JWC Mum Sale is live! We are off to a fantastic start with our first ever mum sale! Thanks to the committee’s hard work we have already brought in over $1,000 in gross sales!!!

A few special shout outs go to Carrie Geygan for her amazing artwork and Lisa Gozal for her tech wizardry. This was truly an all-hands-on-deck effort to bring this fundraiser to fruition so quickly.

Please make sure to help us spread the word interacting with our Facebook posts. Our committee is working on the plan for distributing the mums in mid-September. Be on the lookout for a sign-up genius sometime next week or early the following.


Heartfelt Tidbits Supply Drive:

We are partnering with Heartfelt Tidbits to help Mt. Airy Elementary School purchase supplies for outdoor activities and sanitizing items for the classrooms. If you’re able to help, the links in the comments are examples of what we are looking for, but similar purchases are fine. Sign up below!

Sign Up!

Meet Our Members Activity:

The Future of JWC Committee has put together a fun activity to help us get to know one and other. Each member is being asked to create a Google Slide all about themselves! The slide deck and instructions can be found here. An extra special thank you goes to April Robles for putting together this fun activity to improve the camaraderie of our club.

7.1.20 – JWC Update

Happy July JWC! The Board and Chairs are working diligently behind the scenes to prepare for our 2020-2021 Club Year. It will definitely be unique. It’s good to be in this together! We will continue to communicate with you with important updates. We appreciate your flexibility as we navigate this time together!


2020-2021 Service & Fundraising Selections:

The 2020-2021 Fundraising & Service selection link will go live on Thursday, July 9th at 9:00 PM. We will be providing the link to you on Tuesday, July 7th so you can bookmark it ahead of time. Members will be placed in their selection on a first-come, first-serve basis.

FAQS:

  • How much are dues? Dues are $50.
  • What if I’m a chair? First, thank you! Chairs will be placed in their Service or Fundraising selection ahead of time.
  • I would like to select an individual service, how do I make that selection? Members who are interested in committing to an individual service should contact our service chair, Katie Conrad, for board approval.

Any other questions? Please contact Amy Cielak or Kate Wenning.


Concert? Drive-In Movie? Fall Mum Sale!

As you might have heard, our Summer Concert Committee has been working to develop a replacement fundraiser due to COVID-19 restrictions. Our first plan was to hold a Drive-In Movie, but after further consideration, we have decided to not move forward with that plan.

Our amazing Summer Concert Chairs, Ashley and Ellen, are now working to develop a Fall Mum Fundraiser. We feel this will be universally appealing to our community and allow us to socially distance while spreading cheer!

If you are currently on the Summer Concert Committee you will be hearing from Ashley and Ellen with the next steps. If you are interested in helping with this new fundraiser, please contact Ashley or Ellen for more information.

Again, a big thank you to everyone who is working on this change. This is definitely #notyourmumsJWC!

Ladies of JWC, coming to you with a very special weekly update. As we all scramble to rearrange our lives to #levelthecurve, let’s all take a moment to be grateful for one and other. It’s times like these that we are reminded that women’s clubs were started with the mission of community welfare.

Thank you to everyone who has participated in Shamrocks & Pot O Gold. We are especially grateful to our chairs, Raquel Bevington and Erin Daugherty, and the Shamrock Committee. A few updates:

  • Please sign up for shifts to move shamrocks. The more helpers the easier it is to socially distance. You will typically only have to pick up at one house and drop at another, so this is a great way to get out of the house with your family!
  • Please continue to promote and purchase Pot O Gold tickets. We know how vital these funds will be for the organizations that we support, so let’s raise all we can. The pot is currently up to over $700! Ticket sales close down on 3/17 at 5:00 PM. The drawing will be held via Facebook Live at 6:30 PM on 3/17. Thank you to Helen McCormick for leading up STP.
