Once upon a time, in the spring of the year 2014, there was a
magical celebration held in a beautiful glass palace on the banks of a
(sometimes) beautiful lake in the Kingdom of Lakeway. This fete was
attended by members, spouses, and guests of a wonderful society called
the Women of Greater Lakeway. Music filled the air, as handsome
gentlemen and ladies ate, visited, and danced the night away. The twin
princesses who choreographed this festivity – Donna, from the House of
Kumar and Barbara, from the House of Bembry—are to be congratulated for
their creativity, their organizational skills, and their hard work.
They were assisted by their handmaidens and other willing subjects, who
toiled unceasingly through the day to decorate the palace. As the clock
struck 10:30, all of the subjects climbed into their chariots and drove
away to live happily ever after.
At our March meeting the Nominating Committee, chaired by Nancy
Clayton, presented a new slate of officers for the coming year. You
will be given an opportunity to vote on these positions for 2014 – 2015
at the April 28 Women’s Club meeting. The new officers will then be
installed at the May 19th Installation Luncheon.

her work in breast and prostate cancer. She receives funding for her
work from the National Cancer Institute, the American Institute for
Cancer Research, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, and the
Department of Defense. She sits on several national review panels, and

integrated program that encompasses basic research, cancer treatment,
clinical trials, education programs and cancer prevention. The ultimate
goal is to develop effective interventions, both pharmacological as

aggressiveness of breast and prostate cancer, leading to improved
survival for all cancer patients.

LAKEWAY 50th ANNIVERSARY
It is hard to believe that after months of planning the Golden
Anniversary Celebration, the year 2013 has ended. Such fun was had and
so many memories were made. The lighting of the Christmas Lights and
dedication of the Log Cabin was so beautiful and another reminder of
Lakeway's beautiful traditions. Mayor Dave DeOme reminded us of this as
he led the Celebration in frigid, holiday type weather. Donna Kumar and
Barbara Bembry presented scrapbooks of Lakeway history to the city, and
the outstanding work of Chairwoman, Dee Ann Burns, was recognized.
Wishing you all a very happy 2014!

Anniversary Celebration Liaison
