Highland Lakes Service League
SERVICE ORGANIZATION GROWS WITH THE COMMUNITY
The Highland Lakes Service League kicked off their 35th year of service to the community on Wednesday, September 14th, with a presentation honoring past presidents and a discussion of upcoming projects and volunteer opportunities.
For over 30 years, the Service League has raised funds for non-profit organizations and women’s scholarships and has been a visible force in the community. Their signature annual event, the Chuck Wagon Chow Down, is a highly anticipated gathering held each January, featuring local entertainment, world class barbeque, and the opportunity to participate in both silent and live auctions. Over $112,000 was raised in 2022, with the net proceeds going back into the local communities in Burnet and Llano counties.
As the highland lakes community has grown, membership in the Service League has also increased. This year members were excited to move into expanded meeting space at the La Quinta Inn in Marble Falls where monthly meetings will be held going forward. “Welcoming new members into our organization is exciting”, said Service League President Merrell Laurentz. “And the needs for service and opportunities for volunteerism just continue to grow. We welcome any woman with an interest in serving their community to join us.”
Anyone interested in attending a meeting or joining the organization should contact Brenda Eubank (email@example.com) or visit the website at hlsl.org.
Meetings are held monthly on the second Wednesday of the month at the La Quinta Inn in Marble Falls, with social time beginning at 11:30 am, and meeting activities starting at Noon. Lunch is provided by Miss Vickie’s Catering for a cost of $20.
