The EPWC book group met at Carolyn Stieber’s home to discuss the June selection of H is for Hawk! Most of us found the book hard to read and challenging to follow the thread of the author’s ideas. The author did have very thoughtful insights and written passages that made the book worthwhile. She moves […]

Nine ladies plus Lumen enjoyed a perfect Fall day while hiking about a 2.5 mile loop at Natural Bridge. The Fall colors were spectacular as we watched the frothing river appear to be sucked into the rock. Note the size of the tree we are circling. No, Joan isn’t napping; she is simply taking a […]

After we created our tamales we enjoyed a luncheon […]
The Ladies Outing enjoyed Medford’s last Art Walk of the year on Friday, September 21, 2012. The town was all “decked-out and ready for company”. They literally rolled out the green carpet of sod along the sidewalks and set up chairs like an outside cafe. In Vogel Square Mexican music blared as festively dressed girls […]

Have you ever hear of the expression “Hot as Haiti’s”? Well this month’s September book was all about living in that heat. However, while discussing Island Beneath the Sea by Isabel Allende we were sitting in Maureen Callaway’s yard under shade trees sipping fruit punch and eating scrumptious Iced Banana Cake. This author writes great […]
