During each club year, MLA meets monthly from September to May. The public is welcome. Each meeting has a different theme with a unique program designed to provide a variety of social activities as well as philanthropic opportunities. Recent meetings included wine tastings, a “make and take” flower arrangement demonstration, an annual ornament exchange, an evening of “New Year/new you” spa treatments, behind-the-scenes tours of local nonprofit agencies and public buildings, a jewelry night, and the ever-popular crawl historic downtown McKinney Square crawl, during which we visit numerous businesses.
Members’ dues support non-profit groups in McKinney and defray meeting costs. In addition, MLA raises money for a different charity each month and conducts several fundraisers, including community-wide fall and spring yard sales and the popular spring fashion show. Recent beneficiaries of MLA’s fundraising efforts include Community Lifeline Center, the McKinney Public Safety Children’s Scholarship Fund, Collin County Meals on Wheels, the Samaritan Inn, Seniors Helping Seniors, the McKinney branch of the SPCA of Texas and numerous others.
