Women of Skylake

Updated 8/2022

This year and moving forward, the focus of Skyladies is to create a community of “Bridgemakers”. I love our Skylake bridge and how it brings the two sides of our wonderful community together. 

Since 2020, there have been a lot of changes in our world and community. At Skylake we have had a record number of houses sold, and with the increased ability to work remotely we have gained many new neighbors with younger families. 

We have learned a lot during this time, and one of the things we learned is that we all need relationships. Whether we are older or younger, introvert or extrovert, on this side of an issue or that, whatever our religion or beliefs are, we need each other. Relationships flourish when we engage, connect, encourage and listen to each other. Relationships need compromise and remind me that I can be kind even when we may disagree with each other. 

The format of the meetings will be changing from a business structure to having some sort of activity as the main part and a brief addressing of business matters either before or after the activity. Bringing our community together with fun events and activities helps develop deep, lasting relationships. The strength of the community lies in the strength of the connections that we have with each other.

If you live in Skylake and you are a woman, you are a Skylady! All women in the Skylake community are invited and encouraged to attend Skyladies meetings! To enable working Skylake women to attend, we are changing our monthly meeting to the first Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm. The first 30 minutes will be fellowship followed by the activity/meeting at 7:00 p.m. 

Skyladies is supported by fundraisers and an annual requested $15 donation per member. Donations are not required but appreciated.  These funds allow for activities and events, kitchen supplies, memorial donations, decorations, etc. 

We hope you join us to celebrate existing and future friendships! Meeting reminders are sent out by email. To get on the mailing list, contact Alice Carey.

If you have questions please contact the Skyladies at Skyladies2023@gmail.com.
