“ANNUAL DAY OF SERVICE”
In honor of the late Janice Bowling, Kelley Van Auken and Lori Dodds, WOWDems will set aside a day of service every year! Janice Bowling was an extraordinary volunteer block walker, phone banker and Deputy Registar and member of WOWDems from the beginning. Kelley Van Auken was Director of Volunteers at the White House in the Clinton administration, and founded the successful “My Very Own Book” which gives free books to children in low income neighborhoods. She was a member of Texas Democratic Women of Collin County (TDWCC) and inspired the formation of WOWDems. Lori Dodds was the Collin County Law Librarian and an active TDWCC member. We will always remember them.
