Covid – 19 has made several changes to our planning and this is no exception. This year our Ladies of the Lake Luncheon will be held at Wiawaka. We will have our celebration on our historic grounds with a delicious luncheon, silent auction and presentations of our Spirit of Wiawaka award and the Mary Fuller Women Helping Women award.
