COOKING POT.  Each month, a few of the participants plan a 4 course meal, pick up the ingredients, make copies of the recipes and verify that all of necessary pots, pans , etc. are available. The first Monday of the month the 16 participants break into 4 teams and prepare the meal. As with most Women's Club activities this is accompanied by comraderie and much laughter (and satisfied bellies)!  Warning! There is always a waiting list. Registrants pay a share of the costs of the meal. If the registrant is unable to attend, she must inform the coordinator by the Friday morning preceding the event; an attempt to find a substitute will be made. If no substitute is found, then the money will not be refunded.

Sign up once and you will receive the information every month, about a week prior to the outing, with all the details of what, when and where.  Names are not held over from previous years so you must sign up every year.  We usually meet the 4th Tuesday of the month all year long but may vary due to Holidays.

MUSICAL NOTES.  About 30 minutes prior to the monthly luncheon a group of spirited ladies retire to the Johnson Room, rehearse a song with which to regale the congregated members and under the direction of Nancy Moore raise their voices in delightful music designed to officially start our luncheon. It's a no stress, relaxing way to stretch the vocal chords. If you would like to participate call Ann M. or find her at table 11 and let her know that you want to participate.

OUT AND ABOUT GROUP:  This SIG is committed to getting LVWC members together and out of Lago Vista, familiarizing them with our Central Texas area and each other outside of the formal luncheon environment.  Our outings are typically day trips that are within 2 hours car travel from Lago Vista, during the week, and during the day. We always have lunch out somewhere near our destination.   Most of our trips are “pay as you go,” but if there is an admission fee or a deposit required, you may be asked to pay when you sign up.  When you sign up, you are committing to the date, and you are taking one of the 20 available slots for that trip. The outing dates and plans will be announced at the LVWC luncheon as they are planned.  So, mark your calendars and please let your group leader know if your situation changes and will be unable to make the outing.
