November 2018 Edition

PRESIDENTS’ CORNER

Thanksgiving is totally an American holiday, one that is uniquely ours. Thanksgiving brings unique questions such as, “Do you serve dressing or do you serve stuffing?” “Was the first Thanksgiving in Virginia or in Massachusetts?” Most importantly, Thanksgiving reminds us to “recommit our energies to giving.” (Amy Grant)

Congratulations to our New Executive Board! This will be an exciting year under your leadership and most importantly we thank you for giving your time and energy to the Newcomers’ Club. Membership is a privilege as well as a responsibility and leaders appreciate your support and your encouragement.

The November luncheon is the third Thursday, November 15, 2018. Our inspirational speaker will help us all to de-clutter! Please refer to the luncheon page for more information. Your check is your reservation.

Membership Renewal begins this month. We ask all our members to complete the entire membership renewal form. This information is important for our data base and helps our Interest Group Chairs include all our members who want to participate in various activities.

In reference to our Interest Groups, Carol and Maggie need to know the names of the Chairs for 2019 by December 4. Many of our groups have co-chairs that share the responsibilities. These small groups are an excellent way to form close friendships. If you are a new or fairly new member, these positions are a good way to become involved and make a contribution to our
Club.

The Holiday Gala will be a most entertaining evening at the Lexington Country Club and we hope that you sent your reservation in by Nov.15th. Please note that there is no admission without a reservation. All reservation checks will be acknowledged with an e-mail. You will find the flyer in the September and October newsletters.

We wish everyone a most happy holiday season this November.

Carol and Maggie
2018 Co-Presidents of
Newcomers’ Club of Greater Columbia
