Community Outreach

get involved!

In our recent TLWC survey, members expressed a tremendous amount of interest in "hands on" community involvement to complement our grants fundraising, and provided a lengthy list of ideas for possible community service projects and activities.  

The Knotty Pines, Quilting Group and Garden Club are already actively engaged in community projects, and the opportunities are limited only by our imaginations and heart for helping.  The following Tri Lakes organizations would love to have TLWC members help with their events or projects.
