Community, Caring, and Sharing
I hope everyone had a Happy Holiday season. We have quite a few new and returning members, welcome to all of you!
We’ve wrapped up our membership dues drive for 2021. As a result of your generosity, we collected over $2,800 for charity! This amount will be split equally between Mission House and Rethreaded. Thank you to all who donated their annual dues. If you have any questions about your membership, please contact Vickie Cobb at email@example.com.
Even though we haven’t been gathering as a large group, several of our clubs are still meeting as best they can during this time. The Bridge Club continues to meet once a month at the Club for dinner and then bridge. The Book Club meets virtually via Zoom, and their Holiday “party" on December 9th was a fun event with lots of holiday sweaters and sparkly accessories. The Reel Club had a lot of participation from its members, offering entertaining movie and television suggestions.
The Luminarias Evening was a big success, and there was a great deal of neighborhood participation! It was a beautiful evening and wonderful to meet so many new neighbors and see a lot of familiar faces.
This pandemic has done nothing to dampen the generosity of our residents! The Wolfson Children’s Hospital Toy & Book Drive was a big success, too. Even though there wasn’t a drop box at the Club this year, an amazing number of gifts were collected. Seventeen bags full of toys were delivered to Wolfson a few days before Christmas. A big thank you to all who donated gifts and to those who donated through Amazon.
A couple of years ago, we changed our membership year to a regular calendar year (Jan 1-Dec 31). However, we understand that this has caused some confusion for our members with renewals. Therefore, we feel it’s best to return to aligning our membership year with our fiscal year (June 1-May 31). We are working on how this change will occur, and more information will follow soon.
Finally, as Covid continues to be a concern, the Board has unanimously decided to cancel our Spring Brunch. However, we are planning to go outdoors for a Happy Hour event at the Club on Tuesday, May 4th, for our members! If you are comfortable attending, we hope you will join us. Please save the date, and additional details will be sent soon.
Stay safe and healthy!
President, Women’s Network of JGCC
The Women's Network of Jacksonville Golf & Country Club was formed in 1992 by a small group of women who wanted to help their new neighbors feel welcome. Our members enjoy numerous clubs that offer something for a variety of interests. We also develop projects to improve our own neighborhood and contribute to many charities in the greater Jacksonville community.
From our spirited Book Club discussions to the competitive Trivia Club outings, there is certainly a club that will be of interest to you. Several of our clubs have been in place for years and others just started. We strive to keep our clubs reflective of the interests and demographics across our membership. We hope we have something for you, and we’re always open to new suggestions!
When you look around our beautiful neighborhood, you see many improvements that were provided by the Women's Network. From the lighted signs at both gate entrances to the impressive fountain on the 18th hole, you see the contributions from the Women’s Network.
Additionally, across the greater Jacksonville area, we are active participants in charitable giving supporting many organizations. These activities include building Habitat for Humanity homes, hosting collegiate athletes, contributing to cancer research, and helping schools in need. We believe our focus on issues that are important to women and families help make a difference in our community.
If you're new to the neighborhood and want to make new friends, please consider joining the Women's Network. Even if you've lived in the neighborhood for years or used to be a member, we'd love to have you back!
