Douglas Lake Womenade
This group met ﬁrst in June, 2003, and agreed on a mission of assisting children and families in Pellston and Cheboygan County who are experiencing difficulties.
Since its inception, DL Womenade has grown to over 75 members and has helped many area families and/or individuals with a wide variety of needs including, but not limited to, medical, dental, education, transportation, safety, heating, electrical, plumbing, housing and clothing. They have partnered with other groups, organizations and agencies to extend their effectiveness.
The group meets on the third Wednesday of June, July and August as well as a fall meeting in September when guests (spouses, friends…) are invited. The gatherings begin at 6:00 and are hosted in homes around the lake.
All women of Douglas Lake or friends who are interested in the mission are invited to attend. Each member brings her own table service, a dish to share and a check for $35 (or whatever amount the individual would like to donate) made payable to DL Womenade. After a very short business meeting, they share dinner and conversation.
The unexpected outcome of this group has been the many wonderful friendships made around the lake.
