About Us

Womanade at The Pinehills

Womanade at The Pinehills invites all women residing in our community to join us in our philanthropic mission to provide short-term financial assistance to families who find themselves in an emergency situation. Our members gather at bi-monthly meetings for fellowship and program (speaker, musician, artist, etc) and are asked to make a voluntary contribution to Womanade – this is not an “admission price” to our meetings. Many of our members choose to make their donation annually, some using their Charitable Gifts Accounts. Any member making a donation or donations totaling one hundred dollars or more by check will receive a letter of acknowledgement at the end of the year for tax purposes.

The hands-on work of Womanade is carried out by a Board of Directors, consisting of not more than 20 women, divided into committees with specific responsibilities. A Board member serves a three year term of office. The make-up of the current Board of Directors is as follows:

  • Chair: Carolyn McCoy

  • Treasurer: Lynda Wolff

  • Asst. Treasurer: Nancy Guerland

  • Secretary: Ervene Pelegrini

  • Communications:  Marcia Martinson, Karen DeRusha, Alexandra Paul-Simon, Maureen Chew

  • Programs: Karen Baker, Susan Grassie

  • Outreach: Julie Day, Patricia Brylinsky, Susan Landers, Alison Davies

  • Hospitality: Sue Pond, Jan Root, Sue Kamm

  • At-Large: Jo-Anne Gretemeyer

  • At-Large: Kristine Herrick

Anyone interested in serving on the Board of Directors is encouraged to reach out to the Chair to discuss upcoming openings.
