You are invited to the Lakes history breakfast on Saturday, March 8, at 10 AM in the Clubhouse. We have invited all the original owners who still live here, as well as Lakes developers, and local Tempe historians. All attendees will have an opportunity to share their own history in The Lakes. The event is an annual milestone as we carry on with forty-three years of history. Breakfast will be homemade casserole, juice, fresh fruit, coffee, and tea. Entertainment will be a 1970s music mix that will take everyone back to the good old days. The event is sponsored by the Lakes Women's Club, and the breakfast is hosted by the Activities Committee and LCA.
Saturday, March 22, is the date for The Lakes annual Poker Regatta. Purchase as many hands as you would like to play at the Beach and Tennis Club before March 21st. Hands are $5 each and include a picnic lunch at the park following the event. Additional lunches may be purchased for $5 each.
It's easy to play: Seven checkpoints will be set up throughout the main lake. You will be given a map, along with detailed instructions when you purchase your score sheets (hands). Participants travel by either boat, bike, or on foot to each of the checkpoints in any order, and draw a card. The value of that card is then entered on your sheet by the official at that checkpoint. The object is to form the best possible 5 card poker hand. The more hands you play, the better your chances for winning some of our great prizes. Read more on the LCA page »
The LWC's Pet Food and Supply Drive was a huge success! Three large SUVs were needed to transport all of the donations to AZ Small Dog Rescue and Lucky Paws Rescue. Best of all, a little pup found his fur-ever home.
The pet supply and food drive will benefit cats, dogs, bunnies, hamsters and other critters - all living at two no-kill animal shelters - Lucky Paws and Arizona Small Dog Rescue. Both are 501(c)3 organizations and depend solely on the generosity of the community for funds. Read more »

Did you know that the second Wednesday of each month we host a music time/story time event for the kids at the Clubhouse? Many of you have joined us and are participating in the fun, but there are many more parents and kids we haven't seen yet.
We want to get to know you!
Come join us for 30 minutes of learning, music and fun from 9 - 9:30 AM upstairs in the Clubhouse! This is a great opportunity to have fun spending quality time together. Spend 30 minutes with your child together with other Lakes families and enjoy enriching our lives together. Hope to see you there!
