Get involved, and enjoy life at Smith Mountain Lake

Finally, I should mention that Greg has been involved with the Coast Guard Auxiliary here on the lake and has made a number of wonderful friends through this group.

But this is not just a group of women who meet for an hour every day to dance and get their heart rates up to some terrific music. My first introduction to the lake community and one that has come to mean so much to me is my participation in the Westlake Jazzercise group under Jill Hamilton Muccino.

Another example of how well things can work when people get involved happened at the office opening ceremony of the SML Dems. The Club announced its support of the Charity Home Tour in the form of a Bronze-Plus Sponsorship. Most recently, I joined the Smith Mountain Lake Democrats. 5, 6, 7 for the 2012 Charity Home Tour Event.
