Douglas Lake Womenade 2023

20th Anniversary – A Summer of Celebration!

Glass of Lemonade

It was 2003, when a small group of women on Douglas Lake decided to come together and assist families in crisis within our community. Since its inception, DL Womenade has grown to over 75 members and has helped numerous area families and individuals with a wide variety of needs including, but not limited to medical, dental, education, transportation, safety, heating, plumbing, housing, clothing …

The group typically meets on the third Wednesday of June, July, and August. The gatherings begin at 6:00pm and are hosted in homes around the lake. Everyone brings a dish to pass and their own beverage along with a small donation to the cause – typically around $35 (the common cost of a night out). We share dinner, conversation, and always lots of laughs! The unexpected outcome of this group has been the many wonderful friendships made around the lake.

We encourage all ladies around the Douglas Lake area to join in on the fun!
