Dessert Reception Hosted At Cavallini School Play

The Woman’s Club hosted a dessert reception for senior citizens prior to the Cavallini School Theater Club performance of The Addams Family. The performance had been re-scheduled due to yesterday’s snow storm, but the show went on thanks to today’s sunshine and melting snow. Club members baked, served, and shared the anticipation of family members and friends who were excited to see the children perform.

Creative Evening at Board and Brush

On Thursday, March 20th, members spent an evening creating personalized wooden signs for their homes at Board and Brush Studio in Ramsey. The evening was organized by our Arts Chairs, Christine and Kristen. Wood, wine, paint, friendship, and creativity combined. The finished results were gorgeous!

Blizzard Bag Project

We have completed our first Blizzard Bag Project!

Thanks to generous donations from Inserra Shop Rite in Ramsey, and the help of members and Girl Scout Volunteers, we assembled and packed emergency food ingredients in 50 Blizzard Bags. We filled three members’ cars with bags to be delivered to homebound seniors in town by Meals on Wheels, our Police, Ambulance Corps, and Fire Department as they see need. We hope that, through our efforts, these seniors will feel more secure during winter weather.

Successful Heart Health Seminar

Our Heart Health Seminar on January 24th was a great event! Over 100 women came to Old Stone Church Fellowship Hall to hear Dr. Benita Burke, Medical Director of Valley Medical Group’s Heart Care for Women, discuss preventative measures we can all take to avoid heart disease, as well as signs and symptoms of heart attacks in women.

Dr. Burke was accompanied by Deb Rath RN, BSN, Director of Valley’s free Thrive Program, who explained the “health program with a fun twist,” and offered attendees the opportunity to sign up for a free comprehensive cardiovascular screening.

Jon Goldstein of B&M Market in Park Ridge generously donated and served samples of heart healthy foods, and gave information about healthy, pre-portioned prepared take-out meals available at his market. Jon also donated 25 gift cards to attendees. The evening was organized by our club’s Health and Wellness Chair, Carol Shulman, who is a Health Coach in Integrative Nutrition.
