Newcomers in June


Greetings to All,

It is hard to believe that our year will end at our next luncheon. As the year comes to a close, I want to thank all of you for your part in making this year a success. A debt of gratitude goes out to our wonderful Executive Board and Board of Directors. These leaders have worked with dedication and commitment to move our organization forward. And all members must be commended and appreciated for your active participation in luncheons, activities, and our Fashion Show. It is the member who makes the real difference for Newcomers.

Many thanks to Kay Rorick for chairing a very successful Fashion Show.  We raised $5200 for the Foster Families Assistance Network. Anthony Poteete was very grateful, and told me that a portion of this donation will fund the Lego camps offered to foster children for free. The camps provide many activities, and each child takes home a brand new Lego kit.

Our June luncheon will be Thursday, June 13, at Bluegrass Country Club.  Please note that reservations must be made by June 6.  We will have some fun with each other, hear from our own Newcomer Member Holly Heise who is a talented musician and writer. and review our past year. Please plan to come and enjoy our time together.

Don’t forget that Newcomers dues are being collected now for our coming year… If you are an Activity Director, please gather membership renewal forms from Cheryl Deeter and help your activity members take care of their renewals. Hopefully, this will help us have everyone included in our directory this year. It’s also a great time to recruit some of the visitors who have come to the activities.

Thanks for making a difference this year for all our charities. Enjoy your summer! Jim and I have planned several trips to celebrate our 50th Anniversary.

Many blessings, Bobette
