mary gordonWe look forward to "kicking off" our first meeting with Mary Gordon Spence.  She holds a BA in education from The University of Texas and an MA in Intercultural Education from la Universidad de Las Americas along with other certifications. 

Mary Gordon is a master of diversity. She grew up in a small Texas town, lived in Latin America, taught students from K-College, directed statewide environmental programs, wrote Texas history materials and drafted legislation. Whew!

Mary Gordon is well known for her keynote presentations at conferences and school convocations around the state. She also works with nonprofit organizations to help them craft meaningful stories about their good work. In addition, she also teaches English and American Culture to teachers from Japan and Korea. Her Goal?  To have everyone speaking English with a Texas accent! You've probably heard that Texas accent many times on KUT, Austin's public radio station.

Oh yes, and she worked for a former President...come find out which one at our meeting in September!

FASHION SHOW - RUNWAY 14 – October, 27 – presenting fashions by Dillard’s. Please see  Fashion Show Flyer for details.

Reservations may be made for singles, multiples or tables of 10. And, so more can enjoy the dazzling “show” planned for you, there will be several tables of 11.


Over the years, Women’s Club Fashion Show has become one of our members’ favorite events. As our membership has grown, so has the demand for reservations. To give our valued members first priority for Fashion Show reservations, the Board has approved new guidelines that begin in 2014:
 “Women’s Club members, plus their immediate family (grandmothers, mothers, mothers-in-law, sisters, sisters-in-law, daughters, daughters-in-law, granddaughters), will be given first opportunity to make reservations. Two weeks prior to the Fashion Show, any remaining reservations will be made available to guests. No reservations will be accepted prior to September 1st of the current year, and all must include the total payment, as well as the names of all attendees for the requested reservation.” 

In compliance with this new policy, no member/eligible family member reservation check will be accepted prior to September 1, and based on availability, no non-member check will be accepted prior to October 13. Our final attendee numbers must be provided to the resort on Wednesday, October 22.

We greatly appreciate our members’ support and hope this new policy allows even more of you to enjoy the annual Fashion Show.
