WomenSource’s Brown Bag Luncheons are held on the first Thursday of each month at the Frances Meadows Center on Jesse Jewell Parkway.  You do not need to be a member of WomenSource to attend, however, reservations are required. Lunch is served beginning at 11:45 a.m. and the program begins promptly at 12 noon.  Vegetarian options are available. Cost is $5.00 per person.

In October, WomenSource began charging $5.00 per person in an effort to help defray costs and assure that the organization is able to continue to offer the variety of educational programming that members and attendees have come to expect and enjoy.
