LWC Invitation to Breakfast

All Lakes Women Invited

The Lakes Women's Club has been on hiatus all summer and now it's time to get the fall season started. We would like to invite all Lakes Women to a Get Acquainted Breakfast on Saturday, October 4, at 9:30 in the morning at the Clubhouse.

We Welcome You!

If you're new to the community, we welcome you! This is a wonderful opportunity to meet some of your neighbors and perhaps make some new friends. For those who have lived here one or many years, it's a chance to get reacquainted with old friends and welcome the newcomers to our neighborhood.

The Lakes Women's Club sponsors social as well as charity and fund raising events throughout the season. As a resident of The Lakes, you are invited to be a part of this wonderful organization.

Please Join Us!

Our regular meetings are on the first Thursday of each month from September through May at 6:30 PM.

Lakes Women's Club

Oktoberfest at The Lakes

Comin' Around Again

Party picture Remember that great Oktoberfest we had last year? Well, it's coming around again and you don't want to miss out! Take out your dirndls and lederhosen and come to the Second Annual Oktoberfest at The Lakes Saturday, October 25 from 4:00 to 9:00 PM brought to us by The Lakes Activity Committee.

There will be traditional German food served; bratwursts, sauerkraut, potato salad, pretzels and dessert (maybe the traditional delight - Black Forest cake). We'll provide lemonade and water. Other than that, It will be a BYOB affair. Bring your favorite libation to enjoy with our food.

We will also have a live band, Silvia's Oktoberfest Band, to help get you in the spirit of the occasion. They will be playing polkas, as well as other types of music. One song they definitely will play is the "Chicken Dance". This is practically mandatory at any Oktoberfest celebration. So, get up and work the kinks out dancing to the music.

Besides the food and the music, there will be a costume contest with prizes for ages up to 14 years. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes in several age categories: best boy and girl within each age category. Prizes will be age appropriate trinkets and candy.

For those people that couldn't find a costume, there will be a Photo Opportunity area where you can take your picture as a biergarten serving wench or a lederhosen-clad yodeler.

Tickets will be available at the desk at the Clubhouse and will be for sale at the door on the day of the event. Price to be determined.

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.
