Membership Meetings

1st Thursday every month
Introduction of Board of Directors
Standing Committees include the Activities Committee, the Membership Committee, and Public Safety Committee. Each Standing Committee includes sub-committees as follows:

By-Laws- Chaired by Robert S. Turpen, Vice-President.
Nominations - Chaired by Terry L. Leggett, President.

Newsletter - Chaired by the Secretary, Carolyn Chalk.

Mary M. Hines CPS is Editor-In-Chief.
The Newsletter Editor reports directly to the chairman of the Communications Committee. As editor-in-chief, I will endeavor to do my best to publish interesting and informative issues.

As I mentioned in the editorial, I am a novice in this position. My only qualification is the 40 years I worked as an executive secretary. My greatest accomplishment during this time was to earn the certified professional secretary (CPS) designation.

Now, about myself: my husband, David, and I moved to Hickory Withe in 2000, and became members of HWCA in November 2003. Wanting to meet our neighbors in the Hickory Withe area, this seemed to be the outlet we needed. It never occurred to us that it would evolve into a big extended family…we are so happy to be a part.

Our immediate family consists of two children and 3 grandchildren.

Website - Chaired by the Vice-President, Robert S. Turpen. Pete Wasmund, a member of the Hickory Withe Association, is working with Robert to establish a website. This should be set up by our next issue.

Sandra Brewer, Chairman
My husband, Eddie and I moved to Hickory Withe in 1973. We have 3 children. I volunteered to help with fund raising events and refreshments at meetings so we could have fun at our meetings and to help foster membership in our Association.

The Events/Hospitality Committee is responsible for planning and implementing special events and fundraisers and the Association’s refreshments and dinners.

Last fall, HWCA sponsored a community day that included food, booths, a silent auction, and other great fun things. The yard sale held on Saturday, September 25th was this year’s fund raiser event. It was a big success..we made $1,215.00. Many thanks for all who donated items and especially to those who worked. We need member input for future events. Give us your ideas!

Currently, the HWCA has potluck meals on a quarterly basis. Desserts, cold drinks and coffee will be served at all other meetings. Our goal is to have two “hospitality teams” who will alternate planning the refreshments and dinners. Our next pot luck dinner is scheduled for the December meeting. We are thrilled that so many members helped with this committee.

"Withe is defined as a flexible twig or branch, and it is on account of the great number of hickory trees in that locality that Captain Lenow named the place Hickory Withe."
