SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS
The Thursday Night Bridge Group has folded, so we are in need of
finding a new chair to create a Bridge Group. If you are interested in
starting a new Bridge Group or belong to one and would like to have a
new member in your group, please let me know ASAP. It doesn't have to
be an evening or couples group. We have a new member who would like to
join a bridge group. You can call me or email me with any information
regarding this matter.

As our Women’s Club membership continues to grow – we are
getting close to 500 – it is an increasing challenge to know when major
events happen in your lives. At each Board meeting we ask for names of
those who are suffering through major illnesses, surgeries, or deaths
in the family. We also want to know when honors or awards happen to our
Our Corresponding Secretary, Linda Silinsky-Kephart, sends notes to all
that she hears about. I’m afraid that we are missing a lot of you,
however. Could I enlist your help to email Linda about any of our
dear friends who are going through a difficult health situation or have
lost a family member? Linda’s email address is: email@example.com.

Tracy Dahlby - Storytelling in the Time of Twitter
Dahlby, holder of the Frank A. Benneck, Jr. Chair in Journalism at the
University of Texas presents “Storytelling in the Time of Twitter” on
For hundreds of years, America’s great storytellers have enhanced our
national conversation. We heard stories from our aunts, uncles,
grandparents and teachers, who told where we came from, who we were and
are, and where we may be headed, both as individuals and collectively.
But the way we live today may compromise our communications and
storytelling traditions. How do today’s fast-paced technology-driven
lifestyles impact our interactions with our family and friends? What is
social media doing to our culture?
Dahlby was the Tokyo bureau chief for the Washington Post and Newsweek magazine and is a regular contributor to National Geographic
magazine. He was co-creator and series director for “The Fifties,” a
History Channel mini-series, based on author David Halberstam’s history
of America’s signature decade. Dahlby won a national Sports Emmy Award
for producing “Sports Century,” a series that first aired on ESPN in

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
