    Our first micro-chipping event was well received by the community! Approximately 30 attendees, including those out walking their dogs, stopped by to learn more about pet health via one on one time with our vets and sponsors. We chipped approximately 15-20 pets in just 2 hours! Facebook sensation, Pinky the dog made an appearance and drew a crowd of fans! 


                


               Thanks to members Rosina Chevalier, Rilla Askew, and Jihye Deveau for volunteering by helping us play with the doggies, register the chips and answer questions! 

    Many thanks to our sponsors that gave up their only day off to help our community be responsible pet owners.


    Thank you Dr. Lucy Faulkner and Dr. Christie Cornelius!

    On Wednesday, March 26, 2014, several of our members met at the clubhouse to stuff 100 toiletry bags for the women at Star of Hope Mission. The bags were delivered the next day to the SOH Distribution Center downtown.

    Over the past 3 years, as one of the club’s on-going community service projects, dedicated members of the HHWC have made and distributed close to 1,000 toiletry bags for the women at Star of Hope Mission. Members of both the Heritage and Evening groups make up the roster of this volunteer effort. There are 3-4 ladies that sew the toiletry bags while the remainder collect and supply the contents.

    This HHWC group, Sisters in Stitches, continues to work towards their goal of providing 100 bags to Star of Hope Mission each quarter. While the goal was achieved in the first quarter of this year with the delivery in March, the group needs our help as they have exhausted all existing supplies.

    Donations of needed items as well as cash donations to buy the needed supplies would be greatly appreciated. 

    Here is a list of the items needed to place into each bag:

    1. Travel size shampoo
    2. Travel size conditioner
    3. Travel size lotion
    4. Toothbrush
    5. Toothpaste
    6. Deodorant
    7. Travel size tissue
    8. Bar soap
    9. Razor
    10. Comb
    11. Prayer card

    To donate items or make a cash donation, please contact Anna Gay at abgintexas@gmail.com.

    If you are interested in joining Sisters in Stitches on this or other sewing projects, look for their next meeting date in our Events.

    On March 6, the Houston Heights Woman's Club welcomed members, neighbors, and friends to the Clubhouse for an open house.

    As part of the HHWC's dedication to community service, the Club hosted a suit drive to benefit Dress for Success Houston, a nonprofit organization that provides interview-appropriate suits and career development to disadvantaged women seeking employment. Dress for Success Houston understands that if a woman doesn’t have a job, she can’t afford a suit. But, without a suit, she can’t get a job! By donating interview-appropriate suits to our Suit Drive, members and guests helped low income women in our community get on the road to success!



    More than 2 dozen suits, plus purses, blouses, shoes and scarves were collected. Additionally, there was $150 in cash donations that will help the organization buy suits in hard to find sizes. 
    The HHWC is thrilled that we were able to partner with a new organization to help women! 

    If you would like more information on Dress for Success Houston, please visit their new website at www.dfshouston.org

    Our neighborhood has some of the most lovely bike trails in town. 
    Member Ellen Patton would love for you to join her to explore them!




    Ellen is trying to form a small group of women who would be interested in bicycling the Nicholson trail 1-2 mornings a week as the weather improves. This would be for light exercise and enjoyment; more leisurely riding than high impact. (6-8 miles a ride)

    If you would like to join or have questions for Ellen about her idea, you can find her contact information in the Directory. 

    Not a HHWC member with Directory access? Email info@houstonheightswomansclub.com and we're happy to help!

    Happy Hours have become one of the Club's most popular events! Held at restaurants in the Heights (most often at Shade on 19th Street), these casual gatherings are a great way to mingle with friends and Club members. Because there is no program or agenda, it's also a great event to bring friends who might be interested in joining. Prospective members can meet current members and find out more information in a fun, casual environment. 

         
     

    Happy Hours are posted on the events calendar here and also on our Facebook page

    Check out our photo albums for more great pictures of Happy Hour and other club events!
