Week of May 3 – 7, 2021

Hello friends,

The fiscal year 2020-2021 is behind us. It was a challenging year in so many ways, but we are all looking forward to this next year with anticipation of returning to the club and to seeing our DWC friends. While most of you have paid your dues for this next year, there are still those who have yet to send in your check. We don’t want to lose any of you … so, please take care of that and plan to participate with us as we plan for this next year. We need your support … we need you!! We still have some challenges ahead, but we are working hard to work through them.

Here are some of the things that are already on the calendar: 
(We will continue to follow CDC guidelines for activities held at the club).

Friday Programs continue to entertain and educate us about our community. Check in the Sunday News for the schedule. There are a few left this spring.

The Photo Club continues to explore areas of Duluth where we can walk, chat, and take a picture or two. Everyone is invited to walk along. Check the Sunday Night News each week for information.

Mahjongg is already underway…Contact Rosemary Guttormsson if you would like more information.

May 11th is the start of bridge at the club. There are 12 members who have signed up already. Contact Sandy Keyser or Mary Krook if you have questions.

May 21st is the Annual Meeting. This year for a variety of reasons, we will hold the meeting on Zoom. It will be different, but that way we can accommodate more than if we tried to hold the meeting in person at the club. You will be sent the link as we get closer to that day. We will be voting on a Bylaws Revision and the Slate of Candidates for 2021-2023.

May 25th will be a lunch on the Terrace in the back of the club. Reservations will be required so we can plan for everyone who wants to join us.

Beginning in June, we plan to have lunches on some Thursdays like we have done in the past. More info will come later.

July 21st is the Annual Tour of Homes and Gardens. We are excited that the DWC will host our popular fund-raising event again this year. We have 5 homes and 3 gardens on the Tour this year including our own Clubhouse. Lunch will be a bit different than in the past…..this year we will have Food Trucks available in the DTA bus turnaround…even Love Creamery serving their wonderful ice cream. The Tour Committee needs volunteers to help, so I hope you are willing.

In August a summer picnic is being planned. Our summer is filling up. I am really looking forward to seeing a vibrant Duluth Woman’s Club again soon. We will post events/activities in the Sunday News and on the DWC Website. So watch for those each week. Please feel free to email or call me or any of the officers of the club if you have questions or concerns.

Park Point Trail Photo Walk: Wednesday, May 5
Time to see what the Park Point Trail reveals in the spring. Let’s explore on Wednesday, May 5. We will meet at 1 pm by Sky Harbor Airport, which is at the end of Minnesota Avenue on Park Point. It’s an easy walk in the old growth forest, and we will look for driftwood and other beach treasures
along the lakeshore.
Fun times!
