LWC Welcome Breakfast

Season Kickoff

All Lakes Women are invited for breakfast, Saturday October 8 at 9:30 AM in the Beach and Tennis Club. This is the traditional kick off of the 2016/2017 Women’s Club season.

It’s a wonderful chance to meet and welcome new neighbors, as well as get re-acquainted with old friends and neighbors after the long hot summer.

Come out and see what the Lakes Women’s Club is planning – whether it be a social event, charity fund raiser or community service project, we always have a good time!

Rene Ballou Project Nite-Nite

Remember in the spring when you donated items in the Beach and Tennis Club lobby for the Rene Ballou Project Nite-Nite? The LWC filled 100 backpacks with blankets, books, stuffed animals & hygiene items for needy children and we donated them to the East Valley Child Crisis Center.

The Director of the Center was so excited to receive our donations that she asked to personally thank us! She has been invited and will attend the LWC Welcome Breakfast on Saturday, October 8 to meet with us and tell us about the Center.

Breakfast is on us, so please plan to attend and be a part of the community. We’d love to see you.

LWC September Meeting Date Change

In September, because so many LWC members are still on vacation and unable to attend, we are going to move this month’s meeting back one week to Thursday, September 8.

Our regular monthly meetings are at 6:30 PM on the first Thursday of each month. We go Out to Lunch on the second Wednesday and meet for Happy Hour on the third Thursday of each month.

And it’s not too soon to be thinking about the annual Lakes Garage Sale in November!!

Oktoberfest at The Lakes

Fall Season Favorite

Take out your dirndls and lederhosen. You'll fit right in at Oktoberfest at the Lakes on Sunday, October 23, from 4 to 8 PM.

There will be traditional German food served; bratwursts, sauerkraut, potato salad, and dessert.

Besides the food and live polka band music, we will have a costume contest with prizes for ages up to 14 years. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes in several age categories; prizes will be age appropriate trinkets and candy!

Tickets will be available at Beach and Tennis Club soon and on sale at the door on the day of the event. Tickets price is $6 per person; $3 per child under 12; 3 and under are free.

The Lakes will provide lemonade and water. Other than that, it will be a BYOB affair, so, bring your favorite libation to enjoy with our food.

Do come and enjoy the food and the music. Meet your neighbors, enjoy the park and the weather. Bring your friends, too, so they can enjoy the food and the great atmosphere and activities here.

It’s Time for the Lakes Artisan Fair

Write it on your calendars

This year we host our annual Lakes Artisan Fair on Sunday, November 12 from Noon until 4 PM in the Beach and Tennis Club large park. It is an event that offers a relaxing afternoon of wandering through the park and an opportunity to view and purchase arts and crafts made by local artisans from all over the Valley.

The holidays are creeping up and our Artisans Fair is a perfect place to find that one of a kind gift.

This is also a call out to our Lakes artists to join in. If you would like a spot, or know of anyone who would be interested, please email or call Gay Cutter at 602-499-0870 or email us at
