Community Involvement

 

Sandra and Mary Ellen delivering gift

 

The Women Who Wine of Texas adopted a family this year, 2013. This was a very rewarding experience for our group. The family being helped consisted of the grandparents who are raising their 8 year old granddaughter. The photo is of Sandra Sellers and Mary Ellen Arledge delivering the gifts to the child’s school. 

The Women Who Wine of Texas wishes all a Merry Christmas and prosperous Happy New Year.
