Our History - How we got started
The following is an excerpt of a letter from our founder and first president, Mrs. Barbara Hunt, telling how the idea for Women's League started in 1969.

Lake Highlands was growing...But we had no central source of community focus - no community government; no town bank, no city hall, no recreation center. We needed a group to filter information and to address the needs of the area - not to interfere with the PTA, church or garden groups but to support the community by promoting civic, cultural and social events. My idea was to put together a group of women who were aware of the needs and activities in all areas of Lake Highlands. I invited 10 women to meet in my home to discuss such an organization. We each went home from the meeting with information to gather and ideas to reflect upon. Two weeks later we met again... At that time we each took an office, chose a name for the group and began to prepare bylaws and aims. At the third meeting we were to invite guests. Five new people were present and of that number four joined the original ten, and the league was formed. On that day the flower bloomed, and it still grows. Most of the charter members are now sustaining members. We are proud of what we started, and we watch your progress with loving interest and encouragement.
