Welcome to Lemon Bay Woman's Club!  We are an active part of the Englewood community.

LBWC 2012 Cookbook
Our cookbook, The Flavor of Lemon Bay, is in!  It's got almost 400 recipes from club members, our friends and families.  We'll publish the occasional teaser recipe here or on our Facebook page, so be sure to return here now & then.  Stop by the clubhouse to see it in real life and to purchase ($10).

Our Regular Events

Bunko - Once a month the Club hosts a Bunko Party.  We gather on the last Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. for an evening of this popular dice game (which can be learned as you play, it's really that simple) interspersed with lots of laughter, comaraderie and even some snacks.  It's $5 for the evening and you may go home with a dollar or two in your pocket!  E-mail Barbara, bltrumble -at- gmail.com, if you'd like to join in.

Business Meetings - Held on the first Friday of the month, October through April.  October's is the Fall Luncheon, with reservations required.

Game Day - These are held mostly on a monthly basis, 11:30 a.m. until 3 p.m.  Please check the calendar for dates.  The featured game this time around is unknown by this writer but I'm sure it's something fun!  This is yet another of Nancy's clever ideas to keep you both on your toes and laughing.  There's also time to sit down and play a game of your choice; we have board games available and you are welcome to bring your own, or if you'd rather play a game of cards, bring your friends and we'll provide your table.

Line Dancing - Every Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.  It's fun.  We have a personable and knowledgeable instructor in Harry!  Come have a lot of laughs and make new friends.  Open to the public—both men and women.  It's only $3.00! Call 941 474-9762 for information or check the calendar for details.

zumbaZumba!  Each Monday and Wednesday evening, we host a Zumba aerobics class from 6 to 7 p.m. at the LBWC House.  What is Zumba, you ask?  Well, they probably say it best themselves:

It’s an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party that’s moving millions of people toward joy and health.

So, grab your water bottle, seven bucks, comfortable workout clothes (if they're brightly colored, all the better) and your sneakers and join us!  Everyone welcome, member or not.

The Dessert Card Party schedule varies; in summer it's usually the 2nd and 4th Fridays and in season once a month on a given Friday, from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Exact dates are on the calendar.  Each table plays its choice of card game.  Iced tea, coffee, and wonderful desserts are included.  Admission is $3 for members and $5 for non-members. Reservations are required—sign up at the clubhouse or call 474-9762 for reservations or information; please leave a message and the committee chair will call you back.  Bring your good luck and a couple of dollars for the 50-50 drawing!

Don't forget to check out the calendar for more information on our regular card parties, meetings, etc.  For information on past events, check our News Archive.

The club sponsors local charities such as Englewood Meals on Wheels, Englewood Helping Hand, Women's Resource Center, Dollars for Mammograms, SOLVE Maternity Home, Kids' Needs, Fish of Englewood, and Lemon Bay High School scholarships.  A list of charities for the current year can be found on our Membership page.
