Summertime at South SLO County Womenade is planning time

Newsletter July 4, 2022



Our last potluck took place on June 21st at Mariam Shah’s home. We had a wonderful evening with many new connections made, and we raised $1,750 that evening!



Now for something a little bit different - On Sunday, August 21st from 1PM to 3PM, we are having a cookie swap party! It will be held in the “950 Room” at 950 Cypress Ridge Parkway. Let’s do something nice for someone else and a little something nice for ourselves too. We invite anyone wanting to come to the cookie swap to make and bring 3 dozen cookies that day. We plan to make up platters of two dozen cookies for our partner agencies and their advocates. School will just have started and many of our agencies work with the families and children in the schools. The other dozen cookies will go to bakers to take home. Of course there may be some sampling during the afternoon! Please plan on bringing your cookie recipe and the story behind your favorite recipe. We will share recipes with participants. We will ask for a free will offering to help us continue our work with these agencies. We will have some light snacks and beverages available. Put it on your calendar and plan on joining the fun!


September 1, 2022 6 PM at Caren Russom’s home in the village

October 5, 2022 at 6PM at Candace Guldeman’s home on the mesa

We would love to have one more potluck dinner between Thanksgiving and Christmas. If anyone is interested in volunteering to host one, please email us at


  • Garage Sale at Trilogy on Saturday July 23 from 8AM to 2PM Vanessa Fujimoto, a Womenader, will be selling her unbelievably beautiful handmade aprons in 3 sizes – adults, children and dolls. She is giving all the proceeds from the sale of these aprons to South SLO County Womenade! Her address is 1135 Aidin Ct, Nipomo, CA 93444. They will make excellent holiday gifts. Check it out!!

  • General Toiletries drive – September 1 to September 30 we will be collecting toiletries for those in our community who are experiencing hygiene poverty. Lola Zybura has volunteered to co-lead this drive but wants to work with a co-leader. So we are looking for someone to volunteer to work with her on this project. Womenade makes the initial contact with the agencies and advocates to get a list of who wants items. Then the leaders arrange for some collection sites throughout our community and recruit people to help with the sorting, bagging and delivery. Please email us at if you can help!

  • In October we will hold a “we missed the bus” drive specifically for teachers who still need specific school items for their students. Once the “stuff the bus” campaign is over teachers will still be missing critical teaching supplies and are always reaching into their own pockets for these supplies. Please email us at if you would like to lead this project.
