Our speaker for the February meeting is Jo Karr Tedder. Ms. Tedder is a native Texan, former educator/administrator and the current President of the Central Texas Water Coalition.  In December 2014, the organization was named Outstanding Non Profit of the Year by the Highland Lakes Legacy Fund during the fifth annual Celebration of Giving held in Marble Falls.  She and her volunteer board and members work diligently to constructively address the water issues of the Lower Colorado River Basin.  The desire of our members to learn more about how we, as individuals, can be educated to the needs of water preservation in our community was expressed in the last member interest survey, so please come join us for an informative and educational discussion.

Sharon Gilmore, 1st Vice President

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.
