Events

Monthly Meetings
Luncheons are held on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at Drusilla Seafood Restaurant. Luncheons include open networking, introductions, and a guest speaker. We request that you RSVP at the link below so we can let the restaurant know how many we expect. Payment at the restaurant is acceptable, but RSVPs are preferred. 

Social Gatherings 
Every month to two months we host a social gathering for all women to come together, network, and have fun! You can RSVP on our Facebook page for these events! Please feel free to show up when you can! It's open networking, so it's ok if you can't arrive at the start time!

Fundraising Events
These are just like our social events, but we will have a strategic goal of raising money for our scholarship fund. 

Hats Off!
This fun event is held at our July luncheon. Instead of a guest speaker we wear hats and have a contest to see who has the best hat story, and just enjoy ourselves! 

Ornament Exchange
Everyone loves a little white elephant party right? Join us for our December luncheon and ornament white elephant party!
