Thank you from the Dunes Woman’s Club for your support at 2019 Holiday Market Place.
Your spending gave us about $7,000 to distribute among non-profit organizations.
This year the Erosion issue was recognized as an emergency, and over half of the dollars will go the town fund.
The balance will be distributed to the Depot, Pine School, Food Pantries, a homeless shelter, the BS Police Dept and the BS Volunteer Fire Dept.
Market Place is our primary fund raising activity so mark your calendar for the weekend of November 21, 2020.
DWC meets monthly at noon on the second Thursday of the month at the Community House in Beverly Shores, IN. There are no meetings in January, July and August.
Dues of $20 are collected on an annual basis in September.
“Keeping the unity in our community”
This is a quilt that the club made for the 50th Anniversary of Beverly Shores.
The 42 squares depict the different aspects of life in Beverly Shores and each exhibits the dedication and of a different member of the Dunes Woman’s Club at that time
The quilt hangs in the Administration Building meeting room.
The Community House located on Service Drive just west of the Administration Building is the pride of the Dunes Woman’s Club.
The house serves as the location for the monthly meetings, and the annual Holiday Marketplace in November.The porch of the house serves as a community library. Books are available for the taking anytime. Donations of books in good condition are also welcomed.
Historical records show that on June 28, 1934 the Chesterton Tribune reported:
“Mrs. Ruth Wollett entertained a group of Beverly Shores ladies last Friday afternoon and the organization of a women’s club was discussed. Those present were enthusiastic and seemed to believe that a woman’s club was necessary at the present stage of development of this lake shore development.”
The club was finally “officially organized” in 1939.
The club claims Blue and Sand as its colors.
Current membership is over sixty-five ladies living in Beverly Shores and surrounding communities.
The Mission of The Dunes Woman’s Club is to serve and enhance its local community by:
improving its members through education;
supporting other organizations through donations; and
providing volunteer service for community projects.
The Holiday Marketplace is held the weekend before Thanksgiving.
2019 marked the 62nd Annual Marketplace.
The marketplace is the primary fund raising event for the year.
Items for sale include Holiday greens, craft items, breads, other sweets, frozen soups and casseroles.
Mark your calendar to visit November 23 or 24, 2019 at the Community House, Beverly Shores, IN.
