Our Special Interest Groups (SIGS)
Next Installation Meeting: May 23, 2022
Special Interest Groups + How to Join.
Women’s Club currently offers over 20 Special Interest Groups— affectionately called "SIGs" — where members can pursue hobbies, interests, join book clubs, develop their talents, go on day trips, or explore something they've always wanted to do. You must first become a member of WCGL to participate in a SIG.
SIG events and activities are posted on each SIGs area below. For information or to sign up, please call or e-mail any of the chairmen listed on the individual SIG pages. Chairs can also provide up-to-date meeting details.
If you would like to share ideas for starting a new SIG, or if you have any questions,
please contact Kim Majkszak.
Kim Majkszak, 2nd Vice President
Be Inspired. Socialize. Connect.
We meet the 2nd & 4th Tuesday of the month at the Lakeway Activity Center from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. resuming in September.
If you don't know how to play Canasta, we will train you how to play "Lakeway Canasta." Then you can play in any of the groups in the area.
One of the best ways to meet people and develop lasting friendships in Lakeway is by joining the Dinner Club of the Women’s Club of Greater Lakeway. Dinner Club members and their spouses or significant others meet three times for a casual and fun evening with two other couples to enjoy good conversation and great food.
We are a group of couples who meet in members’ homes in pairings of three couples during January, February and March. One couple serves as host and is responsible for the entree. The two guest couples bring hor d’oeuvres and dessert and libations of their choice. Our regular membership is currently closed.
