The Valentines Day Craft is supported by the Fayson Lakes Women’s Club. The dues paid by our members pay for the items associated with the activity.
What is the Women’s Club?
As we all know Fayson Lakes is a wonderful place to raise a family, and part of the reason it’s so special is because of the Women’s Club’s efforts to have experiences for all of our families.
We ask you to be part of the Women’s Club for $20 to help support the fun kid/family events, show our appreciation to our neighbors, continue the Fayson Lakes scholarship and make important contributions to our community.
So what does the Women’s Club do?

Valentine’s Day craft
Ice skating and hot chocolate event (when the lake is completely frozen)

Scholarships: The Women’s Club grants scholarship money to Fayson Lakes’ High School seniors who complete an essay on growing up in Fayson Lakes, and the impact on his/her life.
How does the Women’s Club financially support all these family activities? Through dollars raised from the garage sale ($1500 total this year) and Women’s Club membership dues of $20. (ADULT events are paid per person attending event-funds do not come out the Women’s Club account)
