After numerous changes in the weather, as the month of May comes to an end in our area, it is time to look forward to summer. It should be noted that HWC members can feel good as they look at accomplishments the latter part of May.
The Kendra Scott fundraiser at Reston Town Center to benefit Wreaths Across America at Chestnut Grove Cemetery was successful. Several members enjoyed spending time with the staff. Everyone appreciates the efforts of those at Kendra Scott who served the customers and assisted in giving back to the community. Additional thanks go to all the individuals who purchased some of the beautiful items during this fund raiser.
Other members again provided the USO at Dulles with small bags for young children. Various military families pass through the USO lounge when traveling to new locations. Travel can be tiring for anyone when making connections or waiting for a flight. The members placed several small items in colorful bags to share with boys and girls.
Many members enjoyed an afternoon with the residents of Arbor Terrace in Herndon for an Ice Cream Social. Entertainment was provided by the Men in Stripes Barbershop Quartet. The Quartet provided enjoyment and smiles, and the ice cream and various toppings were thoroughly enjoyed.
You may see various members of HWC along with spouses helping out at Friday Night Live during the summer and various members will be helping to sell T-Shirts at the Herndon Festival again this year. Be sure and say HI.
