At the ribbon-cutting for the new metal shed/homes, that replaced the original domes at River Haven some of The Women of Jewelia (WOJ) Jone Pence, Dale Muegenburg, Tina Osborne, Roz Warner, and Patti Channer presented a check to Jason Meeks from Turning Point for money that was donated by Jenny & Bruce Zembra from Sandusky,Ohio. They also recognized Island Packers for donating trips to the Islands for the Sandusky 6.
The Women of Jewelia were first on board over 10 years ago to donate a dome when River Haven was created. As one of the original sponsors of a dome they chose to contribute to the new Tuff Sheds because “What we do matters, What we share grows.”
This donation is a result of a group of women from Sandusky, Ohio the Best Cellars Book Club, who in 2015 replicated the Women of Jewelia’s NY Times best-selling book, The Necklace: Thirteen Women and the Experiment that Transformed their Lives.
A chain of events in Sandusky followed when last September (2017) two of the Women of Jewelia, Jone Pence and Dale Muegenburg were invited to represent all of the WOJ at a gala fund raiser “Diamonds for Hope” benefiting the Firelands Regional Medical Center-Seidman Cancer Research. The WOJ donated an auction item to the fund raiser, 5 nights at an ocean front house, golfing at the Saticoy Country Club, day trip to Anacapa Island by Island Packers and dinner at home served by them.
