The Lakeside Women’s Club was founded in 1970 in the beginning days of the neighborhood. The purpose of the club was to foster friendship among women.  The club has continually met from September to May every year since its founding. There are approximately 50 members, and most meetings have about 30 members attending.   Meetings are held in members’ homes, and are usually, but not always, on the first Tuesday morning of the month.  Co-hostesses provide food and cleanup assistance to the hostesses.


At least one meeting of the club year, there is a field trip, and the trips can be nearby or several hours away.  Some of the field trips have been to museums in Houston, and even the Babe Didrikson Zaharias Museum in Beaumont.   Other field trips have been to Brookwood Community, to Roundtop, Brenham, The Rose Emporium at Brenham, to Galveston, to the Port of Houston, to Washington-on-the Brazos for Texas Independence Day.  The field trips have been a great way to learn about the area around Houston for newcomers and even for those who have lived here all their lives.


At least five of the meetings each year are in members’ homes and feature speakers on various subjects of interest, including Houston authors, a fashion show, the local representative to the Texas Legislature, interior designers, well-known local personalities, a book reviewer, an Ikebana teacher demonstrating Japanese flower arranging, a horticulturist, and the list goes on.


Membership is open to women who live in Lakeside Estates and Lakeside Forest.  They may retain their membership if they move to another neighborhood, provided their membership is in good  standing. For more information, please call 713-781-6329
