Greater Southlake Women’s Society is stonger than ever

To say Greater Southlake Women’s Society (GSWS) is back really isn’t a fair statement because it never really went away.

However, let’s just say after a bit of renovation, GSWS is now becoming stronger than ever.

After a bit of self-evaluation (and who hasn’t done that), GSWS has redefined what it means to not only be a service organization but one where women in our community can come together to socialize and network.

Look for several night monthly meetings as well as afternoon lunch meetings. These ladies have no problem rolling up their sleeves and helping out other organizations with volunteers. Clearly, they are out to make a difference in our community, no matter what group needs their help.

Just last week, this organization held one of its monthly lunch meetings at Trophy Club Country Club. I must say, when I arrived I was a bit taken back…each table was filled with leading business and community leaders from our area. Talk about a powerhouse group. And all under one roof.

The meeting consisted of a visit by FnG Eats chef and proprietor Bob Stephenson, who demonstrated one of his signature desserts, jalapeno bacon chocolate chip cookies. For the record, he allowed everyone’s taste buds to demonstrate how to enjoy it as well (amazing). Then add the warm wassail he also demonstrated and it was sensory overload.

Of course, just like any type of remodeling, there is a “still under construction” time frame, but this group seems to be in the finishing touches stages. I suggest if you haven’t been to a meeting in a while, you check them out. You can see what the group is up to at

Shining Stars

And the style award goes to? At last week’s Shining Stars Luncheon one lady stood out among the group. Who was this lovely lady? Lucille Fleming, who at 101 (yes that is one hundred and one year’s old) is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the out!
