The Oak View Women's Club newsletter is published monthly from September through May. This month's newsletter:
It has been my honor to serve as President of this wonderful club for the past two years. The OVWC is more than a club; it is a community of women that care about the community they live in. The commitment of everyone reaches beyond their personal interests and needs.
Belonging to this community of women has allowed me to see truth behind what can be done when a group of individuals dedicated to a cause work together towards a common goal. In this newsletter, you will find out about the installation of the president and board for the next 2 years. I know that you will support them as you did me. Additionally, please review the proposed budget that we will be voting on at our May 21 meeting in order to have our financials aligned to our fiscal year.
I hope you all have wonderful summer plans and I look forward to seeing you at the June 26 President’s Installation Dinner, the July 22 TAD meeting, and next year’s meetings and events in my new role as secretary.

The Oak View American Legion on Old Ventura Avenue is holding their annual pancake breakfast on Memorial Day, May 26th starting at 7:30 AM. They feed hungry parade participants and anyone else in the community who wants a phenomenal breakfast with great company for a low price.
You’ll see many Oak View Women’s Club members at the breakfast, and they can always use more help. Call Barbara Smith or Leanna Kennedy if you can lend a hand.
After viewing the dazzling Memorial Day Parade, all of one-fifth mile long, hop down to Ojai for the Memorial Day program at Libbey Park. This is a fun day and a time to remember and honor our fallen heroes.
If you’d like to help the Ojai American Legion Auxiliary at their booth, please give activity chairman Nancy Hill a call at Hair 'em 646-0076.

About one-third of adult homeless populations are veterans. At the 20th annual Ventura County Stand Down event, veterans from four counties gather at the California National Guard Armory in Ventura for a three-day respite from homelessness. They can partake of a broad range of services and necessities: food, clothing, medical, legal and mental-health assistance, job counseling and referral.
Please contact Connie Biggers at 646-5033 if you can help in any way on July 25th or July 26th. Volunteers are needed for a variety of jobs.
Connie is also collecting new and gently used jackets, warm vests, jeans, suspenders, belts, and wallets.
