Meeting Highlights 2012-2017

Meeting Highlights

The LWRWC meets at 7:00 PM on the second Thursday of selected months at the Lakewood Ranch Town Hall.  A “meet and greet”  social is followed by a short business meeting and a program of interest to today’s women. Guests are welcome.

Meeting months are Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, Oct, and Nov. The first meeting of the year in January is the “Annual Business Meeting” – dues are “due” and presentations to the WC adopted charities take place.

There are times when members must miss a meeting, but they can keep informed by reviewing the minutes provided by the WC recording secretary or viewing the meeting highlights, both right here online.
