Jan McLaurin, Chair





Women's Club provides us with numerous opportunities to participate in activities and areas of individual interest. September and October were no exception. The Sunset Shindig was a great success! Suzie Leggio and Vickie Taylor made us all want to be fashion models every day with spectacular fashions from Dillard's at the October 27 Runway 14 Style Show. We dined at Café Blue and Fore, learned how to spruce up our antiques, toured Lakeway gardens, moved with Maureen and read a lot of books.

Our meeting in November will be inspiring and entertaining. Laura Deutsch and Jan Rouse spend a great deal of time and attention to detail to ensure we have an enjoyable meeting and luncheon. Mark your calendars for November 24, when "Mr. Positive", Jim Gentil, will present tips on how to have an enjoyable Thanksgiving celebration. Chicos' Fashions and Harrison's Bling are coming to lunch with you. There will be work from local artists with information on display also. It sounds like a fun time! Check with Jan Rouse for reservations.

Your Women's Club Board and SIG chairs join me as we wish for each of you a Thanksgiving filled with many blessings.

Kitty Lichty, President

Womens Club members and their partners donned their cowboy hats and boots for a Sunset Shindig on Sept. 28, at the Pavillion at Highlands Village in Rough Hollow.

About 100 participants enjoyed a barbecue buffet catered by Rudy’s. Afterward, the group two-stepped and line-danced to the sounds of the band, “Where’s Renée? featuring Bahama Billy.” Adding to the fun, Heather Billetter taught the group new line-dance routines.

Women's Club and Dillard's Go for Style

The Women's Club of Greater Lakeway RUNWAY '14 style show attracted 279 members to the Lakeway Resort and Spa on Oct. 27. The event featured fashions, shoes and accessories provided by Dillard's-Hill Country Galleria, modeled by Women's Club members who rocked and rolled to contemporary hits.

"Dillard's was so gracious to work with us again this year. Not only did they provide the fashions but also sales staff to help our models dress and change. We could not do this show without Dillard's support," said event co-chair Suzie Leggio.

Co-chair Vickie Taylor also thanked Lakeway Resort and Spa, Flowers by Nancy, too!, Transformation Salon, and Mike Heyse of the resort's event technology group for their contributions. "So many helped make this event a success. Suzie and I appreciate how many of our members and area businesses chipped in to help," Taylor said.

Emcee Joyce Christian led off with a sassy, stylized introduction that set the tone for five segments, featuring outer wear, fitness, travel, casual and "Lakeway Haute" designs. The event's theme colors were a deep orange, bright blue, black and dark yellow, which carried out in floral centerpieces, name tags, posters and programs.

"We wanted this to be a contemporary event, with modern colors and fashions that women would want to wear," Leggio said.

"From the beginning Suzie and Vickie wanted to do something unique, and, from the way members rushed to see the clothes after the show, I think their concept succeeded. Best of all, our members had a great time," said WCGL president Kitty Lichty.
