Our group meets monthly for a luncheon during the months of September through June.  Each monthly meeting includes a ‘meet and greet’ which gives our members an opportunity to socialize prior to a short general business meeting, luncheon, and an entertaining and informative program.  The luncheons are held at many of the local restaurants in the Fox Valley area, and are open to all current and perspective members, and guests with prepaid reservations.


Past programs have included: Vintage fashion styles and trends, Interior/exterior design ideas, information on ‘subliminal communications’ and ‘handwriting analysis,’ wine tastings, learning how to accessorize with the current ‘fashion’ trends, makeup tips and tricks, learning to organize your clutter, holiday decorating, holistic healthcare options, and much more.  There’s something for everyone enjoyment.
