Welcome to Friends
in the Hills
We are a thriving and active social club in Fountain Hills, Arizona. Our membership roster currently includes more than 350 women of various ages and backgrounds, hailing from nearly every US state and a number of different countries. We meet monthly at group luncheons and enjoy a wide range of activities and events throughout the month, where we socialize with current friends and welcome new ones.
If you live in Fountain Hills or in the immediate vicinity, please join us at our next luncheon or attend one of our Newcomer's Coffees to see what we're all about and let us get to know you.
Meanwhile, feel free to make use of our website to find out more about us, check out our Calendar of events, or Contact Us.
We hope to see you soon!
Fountain Hills is known as an artists’ community. Our April program will feature three docents from the Public Arts Program in Fountain Hills. They will share with us the history and selection of sculptures and art pieces that adorn our town around Fountain Park, the Civic Center Plaza, and along the Avenue of the Fountains. They will also talk about the docent-led art walk tours that are available once a month from November through April.
Learn about our beautiful town sculptures and enjoy a delicious lunch with Friends!
Check out the Monthly Luncheons page for additional details and the April menu.
