LOWC members present 100 pieces of
member-crafted jewelry to Abby's Closet
Several members meet monthly to make necklaces, bracelets and earrings to donate to Abby's Closet. This collective effort began last year when members put together 40 pieces of jewelry; this year they more than doubled their efforts and created 100 pieces from a mixture of new, donated, unused and broken strands. LOWCs February general meeting was held at Abby's Closet where the jewelry was presented. A work party followed the general meeting and the ladies helped to sort many of the 7,000 gowns that are eventually collected. LOWC members also volunteer at the prom gown give-away in March.

LOWC hosted the LO Community Reads Dessert
Anthony Doerr, author of the LO Reads 2015 book selection, All The Light We Cannot See, spoke to a sold-out crowd of over 600 at Lake Oswego High School on February 11, 2015. LOWC sponsored the complimentary dessert by providing the confections, hand-crafted Paris-themed decorations and bookmarks, and cheerful hostesses!
Several of the LOWC volunteers are pictured below with author Anthony Doerr.

LOWC members volunteer at Abby's Closet gown giveaway
Following on from jewelry-making for Abby's Closet, LOWC members Denise, Fran and Minita volunteered at the 11th annual prom dress giveaway held Saturday, March 28th. Abby's Closet collects and donates evening gowns to area teens so that they can enjoy a memorable prom. The LOWC ladies were delighted to meet with Abby herself (pictured below). High school students from all over Oregon and Washington were able to select from 7,777 gowns. Denise worked with the girls to pick out the perfect prom dress and Fran and Minita helped with accessories.
