Congratulations to all of you who contributed to the huge
success of the Fashion Show. If there is anyone
more creative in Women’s Club than show chairman Sharon Rogers, I don’t know who it
is! The centerpieces, headdresses, name tags and other decorations were
breathtaking. Gretchen Nearburg
tirelessly selected, coordinated and coached an outstanding group of
models for the show. Thank you, beautiful ladies. Sharon January took on the
responsibility for reservations and check in – a particularly daunting
task due to the great demand for tickets. Dottie Stevenson and her talented
dancers entertained the capacity crowd with a professional-quality
Thanks also to Dillard’s, who furnished beautiful clothes and
accessories for the show and to the Lakeway Resort and Spa staff, who
were courteous and helpful, every step of the way. A heartfelt thanks
to all of you who helped in so many other ways, such as decorating,
assisting the models, greeting the guests, and publicity, to name just
a few. Most important, thanks to you dear members who came to the show
and made it all worthwhile. For those of you who did not get to attend
this year, please rest assured that our board is already looking at
ways for more of our members to attend next year.
Although there is no general meeting in December, many of the special
interest groups will be having holiday outings and celebrations. For
instance, Out and About will
be traveling by bus to Gruene, Texas for holiday shopping. Sing Along
will also entertain us on December 8. Please click on to “Lakeway
Women’s Club” every day or so for updated or expanded information on
some of these events. And, finally, the Women’s Club Board wishes
you a quiet, sentimental, uproarious, or fattening holiday season –
whatever suits you best!

LAKEWAY 50th ANNIVERSARY
Lakeway Golden Anniversary Gala was spectacular! The Golden Glow
bathed the ballroom of the Lakway Inn as those who attended danced to
the rhythms of the FABS, ate delicious steak and, in general, had a
most memorable evening. Co-chairs Sharon January and Gretchen Nearburg
with volunteers did an outstanding, beautiful job.
Remember the dedication of the Log Cabin and the lighting of the
Christmas lights on December 6th.
