Douglas Lake Womenade

Glass of LemonadeThis group met first in June, 2003, and agreed on a mission of assisting children and families in Pellston and Cheboygan County who are experiencing a family emergency. In the past 14 years they have helped many families and programs, and work with other groups to extend their effectiveness.

They created their own DL Womenade Cookbook, A Stirring Celebration.  The book is in celebration of the 10th Anniversary and contains recipes from members. It is on sale at meetings for $10; profits go to the DL Womenade Treasury. It is the result of hard work by Martha Beechler, Karen Jallos, Marnie Sheridan and Jill Francis. There are a few copies available.

A new fundraiser item was introduced in 2017. It is a packet of 15 high quality vintage Douglas Lake postcards. They sell for $20 and can be purchased at meetings or from Sue Nelson.

The group meets on the third Wednesday of June, July and August as well as a fall meeting in September when guests are invited. Meetings begin at 6:00. The location of each meeting is listed on our calendar (under Membership, Calendar).

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 made payable to DL Womenade. After a short business meeting they share dinner and conversation. The unexpected outcome of this group has been the friendships around the lake.
