December 2018 Edition


Dr. Seuss says this about December: “How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness, how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?” Time has truly flewn and the end of 2018 is close. As short days and long nights are here, be active in Newcomers, come to the Holiday coffee, come to the Gala, enjoy new interest group friends and join in the fun!

Our new calendar year begins in January 2019. I want to thank all the members of the Executive Board and the General Board for their time and their leadership this past year. Interest Group chairs work diligently to give us opportunities to enjoy many social events. Thank you!

Our Holiday Coffee is at Marlene’s beautiful home on Lake Murray on Tuesday, December 4. Our new officers will be installed at the coffee. Join us in support of our 2018 officers as well as our new officers for 2019!

This is a reminder for all members to complete the membership forms and include these forms with your dues of $25for the year 2019.

Our Holiday Gala is the 7th of December and we hope to see you there. The theme is “Denim and Diamonds” starting at 6:30 p.m. for nibbles and drinks with the evening of dinner and dancing from 7:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. Speaking of the Gala, we need volunteers for the 2019 committee and encourage you to contact Carol or Peggy.

Do remember our charity, Light House for Life. Our support for this charity has exceeded all expectations and we thank all of our members for their support. You may send checks to the Newcomers’ Treasurer, Sherry. Designate Charity on your check.

2018 has been a wonderful year for Newcomers, and we both thank you for making it so. We look forward to 2019.

We wish everyone a most happy holiday season this December.
