We are so happy to see our returning members and welcome our 28 new members! Wasn’t it a wonderful summer? Many of us are sporting changes in hairstyles or bolder colors in wardrobes. Others seem more relaxed with brighter smiles. Highlights of summer in Lakeway were the much-needed rain and our Fourth of July Women’s Club parade float winning the Grand Prize.

Women’s Club also announces a few changes we hope you will like.
•    Our fall event, “Sunset Shindig,” will be at a new setting, the Pavilion at Highlands Village in Rough Hollow, on Sunday, September 28.  This is a casual affair of dinner, dancing and mingling. Spouses, partners and solos are welcome.  Reservations are required.

•    “Runway 14” style show on October 27 has a new reservations procedure to give members and their eligible family members first priority.

•    There also is a new option to reserve for our monthly buffet luncheons. For convenience, you can pay in advance in September for all six buffet luncheons. Or send in your check by the deadline each month, as usual. Because the prepay option is on a trial basis, there are some restrictions. See the Luncheon Reservations Form for details.

The Board and I are so pleased you are part of Women’s Club. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please contact me at 512-608-0972 or at kittylichty@yahoo.com

sharon gilmorePROGRAMS

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!

Sharon Gilmore, 1st Vice President
