SAVE THE DATE
The Sienna Women's League is excited to host our first ever New Resident Social on April 10 at 7:00 PM at Sawmill Lake Club. So many of our members have experienced moving into a new community and looking for ways to find friends and get connected so we've created an avenue for new women in the community to do just that! Several local businesses will be in attendance to share free samples and SWL Members are putting together a few special treats for those who attend. This event is free and open to all women in Fort Bend County. We hope to meet you there!
2024 MEMBER ENROLLMENT IS OPEN
Sienna Women's League is so excited to open our membership enrollment window effective February 1st, 2024. Historically, SWL has had two membership drives throughout the year, but this year, we hope to move to an open enrollment process pending the vote and approval of our members at our February 21 meeting. Prospective members are welcome to attend our monthly meetings and/or socials before enrolling and we encourage our current members to invite those they think may have interest in our organization. You can find all the details to join on our "Join Us" page.
