do we do in LHWL?
membership is committed to volunteerism and meeting the needs
of our community.
Each active member volunteers at least four times per year at one
or more of our many service projects provided each year, returning
800 service hours to our neighborhood. These opportunities range
from mentoring/tutoring students in area schools to providing
entertainment to the elderly in area nursing homes to shelving
books at the neighborhood school library.
The entire membership
also is involved in our "Holiday
in the Highlands" Home
Tour, Bazaar and Luncheon, which is held the first Friday in
December. This is our
only fundraiser, the "kickoff" to the Christmas season,
and a wonderful neighborhood event! Last year approximately $170,000.00 was disbursed from LHWL for local student scholarships and community projects. For more information about
