Histories and Mysteries

Third Thursday of Each Month

The Magician's Lie

What was the Magician’s lie? There were many lies in this unusual story about the murder of a man at the theater stage. The accused was a female illusionist, the Amazing Arden, who was inspired by an historical character Adelade Hermman.

The Amazing Arden was known for sawing men in half, a shocking change in 1905. The answer to the question“Did you kill your husband” took unexpected twists in a most unusual method of telling a story.

The next choice is the popular The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. We will read the NY Times best seller and hope to see the upcoming movie.

Histories and Mysteries meets the third Thursday of each month. October’s is the 20th at 7:15.

LWC Hosts Annual Garage Sale

Annual LWC Event

Recycle your treasures and Go Green! The Lakes Annual Garage Sale will be Saturday, November 5 from 7:30 AM to approximately 1 PM.

Sign up at the Clubhouse and get your official Lakes Garage Sale Day permit. The fee is only $10. Be sure to post this permit on the day of the Garage Sale. Also on the back of the permit is important information about places to donate left over items.

Get noticed!

The Women's Club will do all the advertising and decorate the entrances to The Lakes with signs and balloons the day of the sale, but least put up your own signs especially at the end of your streets to help people find you!

We'll have people walking the neighborhood on November 5 checking for permits.

If you decide to have a sale at the last minute or if you can't get a permit before Saturday, you can pay for one on the day. But please, please make time get to the Clubhouse prior to Saturday for your permit. That way you can be onto the Lakes map of all the official Lakes garages and yards.

Why the fee?

This small $10 fee is our way of helping to fund charitable contributions to community programs. The Lakes Women's Club sponsors this event and all proceeds from permits are used to fund things needed and used by us for our community center.

If you do not want to pay the $10 fee, please do not have your garage sale on this day.
