The Southern Tennessee Ladies' Society  (STLS) is a not-for-profit association of  women who are interested in social activity  with other women in the community and  women who want to make a difference in the lives of graduating high school seniors. The organization was founded in 2009. Members of STLS come from Franklin, Coffee, Moore, Lincoln and Grundy counties in Southern Tennessee.  There is something for everyone:  books, bridge, dinner and  travel.  Monthly meetings with lunch and  various and interesting programs are  scheduled.  Fund raising activities are  creative, successful and fun!
