"A friend is one who knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you    have become, and still, gently, allows you to grow."

Since its inception in 1979, our Social Club for women has provided our members a wonderful opportunity to learn about the Tampa Bay area, make new friends and share in numerous, enriching activities.  Our club also provides the opportunity to give back to the community by educating our members about local charitable organizations and providing volunteer opportunities to those interested in community service.

We welcome women new to our community or experiencing a new time in their lives to join as members!  Have you moved into Northwest Hillsborough in neighborhoods like  Carrollwood, Cheval, Citrus Park, Keystone, Lutz, Northdale, Odessa, Town & Country, WestChase or others nearby in the past 4 years?  Or perhaps you are newly retired or had a change in marital status and need a new “community” even though you have lived here for years.

Our Membership Chair, Jo Ann Wong will be happy to share more information, our current monthly newsletter and answer your questions.  Please contact her: Membership2.Newcomers@Yahoo.com or complete the form below. (If you leave us your email, please check your spam file in case our reply goes there!)  Annual dues are $30. and our membership year runs from June 1st to May 31st.  Prospective members are invited to attend 3 club activities to “try us out” before making a decision to join.

ADVENTURES IN LUNCH: A monthly lunch group seeking unusual and unique restaurants and great food in the Bay area.
BRING YOUR OWN PROJECT; meets the 4th Monday of each month to work on your own  craft at Joann’s while socializing with other club members.

“You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than               you can in two years by trying get other people interested in you.”
