LouEllen & Valerie of The Women of Seven Lakes
The Women of Seven Lakes opened the 2018-2019 meeting year on September 6th with a picnic lunch and membership drive held at the Seven Lakes North Clubhouse. The attendees enjoyed a delicious lunch of Subway sandwiches and chips. The highlight of the picnic were cupcakes handmade by board member Linda Stevens made to look like hamburger sliders. Donations were taken at the door for a local Food Bank. Copies of the history of the development of Seven Lakes written by Ann Bass, “Seven Lakes – A Place in the Sun” were sold for $10.00, and a copy of the book was given as a door prize. Additional copies of the book will be available for sale this Fall at meetings and at the Pancake Breakfast with Santa to be held December 1, 2018. You may also contact LouEllen Runyan at 910-400-5291 if you are interested in copies of the book.
