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!
Our new Board of Directors will be installed at the December luncheon. The 2015 Board Members are as follows:
President Heidi Pearson 1st Vice President Harriet Larson 2nd Vice Presidents Donne Chapman and
Deanna Van Der Linden
Secretary Maria Wagaman Treasurer Marilyn Campbell
As we do each year, we are asking every member attending the December luncheon to bring a new, stuffed teddy bear, just big enough for a child to hold, to donate to the Rural Metro Trauma Teddy Program. Members of our local Rural Metro Fire Department will come collect the bears during lunch to give to the children they encounter on their fire and rescue calls. This is a wonderful, fun and easy way to do some good, especially during the holidays, when a soft, huggable bear could make a huge difference to a child affected by tragedy and loss. Let’s be even more generous than ever this year!
After lunch we will be entertained by the OK Chorale Cowboy Trio and their western holiday songs.
As always, the December luncheon will be festive and fun. Check out the Monthly Luncheons page for the December menu.New this year: there will be favors on the table for each luncheon attendee, courtesy of the Friends in the Hills Paper Crafting Group!
See you at the Fountain Hills Community Center on December 10th!
Don't miss this one!
