EBWA--Welcoming All Women of All Ages
A Day at Wiawaka Center for Women
Would you like to spend a day relaxing with other women at a private retreat on southern Lake George? Executive director Meaghan Wilkins spoke at EBWA on May 29 and inspired a number of us to plan a visit to Wiawaka again this year.
You could spend the time in the water and on the dock, or on the Lake House porch, chilling out and reading, or at any number of spots that nurture the spirit. Book lovers might bring books to exchange and persons who enjoy music might hear music from a 10 am concert in near-by Lake George Village. Quilters will also be meeting there that day.
Wiawaka was developed in the early 20th century to provide vacations to women who might not otherwise enjoy the lake and mountains. Check out the website www.wiawaka.org to learn more about this special place for women, as well as for directions. Cost for a day pass is $15. Meals in Wiawaka’s dining room are $12 for lunch and $15 for dinner. If you get a day pass, you are welcome to stay until dark or after. An overnight stay is not included.
If you are interested in attending on Thursday, August 14, contact Judy Clough, by e-mailing her at (preferred) or by calling her at 393-1876 by August 12 to make reservations for a day pass.
We recommend calling Wiawaka directly at 668-9690 by August 12 to make your reservation for lunch. Cost is $12. If you prefer, bring your own picnic lunch to eat in the gazebo or on the lawn. All women are welcome.
Looking Ahead : Our next regular program will be on September 25, when Barbara Chepaitis will be our speaker. Watch for details to follow, as well as our full calendar for 2014-2015!
Next Steering Committee meeting, Wednesday, September 3 in the UUSS Emerson Room at 7 pm. Come and join us!
We operate without elected officers. All activities are coordinated by a steering committee of persons who simply like being a member of a group of all women. Responsibilities are shared and rotated. Help decide on programs, get to better know the women involved and double your enjoyment of EBWA. For general information: Contact Carol Hamblin, 861-6034;
