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!
February is our club's anniversary month and, this year, we will be celebrating our 26th. Our special guests will be some of the club's past presidents and our luncheon program will feature a tribute to them.
We will also be honored with their first public performance of 2015 by the Fountain Hills High School Jazz Band, led by Ms. Lynn Truby. Those of us who have enjoyed past performances by Ms. Truby's student musicians know that this is bound to be an inspiring program!
Check out the Monthly Luncheons page for additional details and the January menu.
See you at the Fountain Hills Community Center on February 11th!
