TriCity Women's Club highlights 'Business and Action'
Submitted By Edith Looney
The May 21st meeting of the TriCity Women's Club is "Business and Action." The 'Business' part will be election of officers for the upcoming year, and the 'Action' part is the presentation of a check for more than $4,800 to Bernie Dutra, wife of former Assemblymember John Dutra, for the charity One Child. Fundraising has been on-going throughout the past year. Members have been paying to the charity through a monthly 50-50 raffle, personal donations, and last month's White Elephant sale. The charity offers school clothes and supplies to needy children in the area.
The hot lunch menu is meatloaf from Dina's Restaurant and is served at noon for a cost of $18. Reservations are required. Call Pat @ 510-796-1229. Everyone is welcome.
If games are your thing, check in from 9 - 9:30 a.m. Various tables of games are available. The luncheon meeting is at the Fremont Elks Club on Farwell Drive near Mowry Avenue (38991 Farwell Drive).
The TcWclub is one of the oldest organizations in Fremont, started in 1963 as the Newcomers Club, a women-only organization. However, to maintain its non-profit standing, as with the formerly men-only clubs, this Club is now open to all. The annual dues for the organization are $20. Much of the effort of the members goes to ease the burden of the less fortunate. Each year, money and goods are raised and donated to various charities in the area.
For more information and reservations, please call our Club President Marilyn Prows at 793-6830.
