Women’s Luncheons

DCA Women’s Luncheons are monthly social gatherings, for both women and men, offering various types of presenters, from authors, to those with poignant human interest stories, to specialists on travel, theater, gardening, entertaining and home décor. Luncheons are held monthly from October to June, and are catered by Michael Joseph’s Catering.
