We are a thriving, active social club in Fountain Hills, Arizona. Our membership roster currently includes more than 425 women of various ages and backgrounds
hailing from nearly every US state and a number of different countries.
We have one monthly luncheon that provides all members the opportunity to socialize together in one place, enjoy a wonderful lunch prepared and served by Sofrita's, enjoy an educational or entertaining program, receive community information, and conduct club business. We have over 20 other activities that Friends may select to participate in during each month.
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 check us out.

And so it begins . . . our busiest season! October in Arizona is wonderful in its own right, with cooling temps and the opportunity to enjoy many more outdoor activities but it also signals the beginning of preparations for the holidays and all of our favorite Friends in the Hills special events. We'll be updating you on those details in the monthly bulletins and throughout this website.
First, however, we invite you to join us for our October luncheon where we'll welcome back some of our returning Friends and enjoy a delightful meal together, as well as another of Vivian Lopez's special luncheon programs.
This month, we will be treated to a performance by Oboist Tiffany Pan. Please see the Monthly Luncheons page for details.
Also, you are encouraged to bring donations for the November Silent Auction (see below for more details) to the luncheon, where Auction Chairs Toni Johnson and Kathleen Rubin will collect them.
Be sure to get your payment of $20 to our Reservations Chair, Ione Bushman, by 5 PM on October 5th.
See you at the Community Center onOctober 12th!
