Waterwood Improvement Association

Women's League

WHO WE ARE and WHAT WE DO

The Waterwood Women’s League (WWL) has been in existence since 1976.  Its purpose is to aid in the quality of life of the women of Waterwood and surrounding areas and to support annual local Scholarship Funds.  Each year, the WWL gives out several 4 year college scholarships or 2 year technical scholarships to students who are chosen by a committee of league members.  The recipients are chosen based on a written paper that they submit to the committee and certain academic requirements.  To date, over $94,900 in scholarships has been awarded.

Where does the money come from to support these scholarships, you might ask?  The money comes from the yearly membership dues and a variety of fundraisers that are held each year.  In the past, some of the fundraisers included a Style Show, No Show Ball, WWL Cookbook, Bake Sales and Garage Sales.  This year the Garage Sale will be held on April 9, 2015 from 8 a.m. to 2.p.m., so mark your calendars.  It is a community wide sale which features a large variety of items: clothing, jewelry, household items, furniture, kitchen items, electronics, gardening items and plants, plus much more.  There will be raffle tickets to buy and food to eat.  You won’t want to miss this!

The WWL also supports charitable endeavors in the area. One of those charities are the Coldspring CareShare Mission - aiding local families with needed household and personal items.

Waterwood Women’s League is a great way to meet new ladies in the area, learn something new and give back to the community.  Meetings are held each month, September through May, at an interesting location, with an informative program and a great lunch. 

If you are interested in finding out more about the WW L or wish to become a member, please contact contact Lalla Goka at email tomlalla@windstream.net or by calling her at 936-891-5962 or 832-837-9660 for information. 

Dues are $20 per year and all the money collected goes toward the scholarship fund.  We’d love to have you join us!
