Third Wednesday of Each Month

movie box

The LWC Classic Film Club will next meet on Wednesday, September 20 at 11:30 AM to screen A Man Called Ove, a 2015 film from Sweden based on the novel by Fredrik Bachman.

Ove is a bitter, unlikeable man forced to retire from his job and living a lonely life in Sweden until a young family with children move in next door and change his life. This dark comedy, with subtitles, was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Foreign Language Film.

If you plan to attend, RSVP to this month’s hostess, Larraine Warren at 480-282-0360.

The Classic Film Club meets in the upstairs lounge the third Wednesday of the month except in summer and the holidays. After a friendly pot luck at 11:30 AM, they screen a classic film. So if you're into film with a classic attitude, call the monthly hostess and give an RSVP.

Artisan Fair

Write it on your calendars

This year we host our annual Lakes Artisan Fair on Sunday, November 12 from 11 AM 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 us at
