President's Letter

President’s Message for October 2012

Behind the Newcomers and Friends club are great women who serve us faithfully. Thank you, and a dozen red roses to each and every one of you. We are a unique club of friendship and fellowship. Our members, Millie Ginsburg, Parliamentarian, and former presidents, Barbara Ferone, Mikki Garside and Alyce Kesselman worked tirelessly to clarify our by-laws. We thank you ladies for the hours you so willingly gave to the club.

The Board approved the revised By Laws and at our September luncheon the members also voted approval. You may review the revised By Laws on the website.

The names of our wonderful board members are listed in your directory. Please connect the names with the faces. These are our many unsung club workers. Many members who also work for our club are not listed in our directory. These members work under our chairperson, Laurie Prince under activities. Thanks to all of you, too.

Giovanna Cabaret, Alyce Kessleman, and Sharon Welch once again created a memorable trip. From across the pond, shouts can be heard. Hip, hip, hurray for a jolly good Royal Day Vagabonds outing. We were all Queens for the day. We shall long remember the people’s princess, Diana. The Royal Collection is beautifully displayed upon the Queen Mary.

Please join us in celebrating the glorious fall season and Halloween at our October Luncheon by dressing in costume or orange and black colors

Our monthly luncheon in November will feature a musical event provided by our own Singing Sisters. We look forward to a delightful toe tapping time. We appreciate your dedication in providing all of us a musical experience at our wonderful luncheon.

Sincerely,
Donna

Donna Jones, President, Newcomers & Friends

SOCIAL CLUB

First, we would like to thank all of you who attended the Pitchess Honor Rancho outing in August.  From all the positive comments we received it seems a great time was had by all. We visited the training range where they were actually training new cadets in hand gun proficiency, the Staff Sgt. showed us all of the new department weapons and the weapons used by the bad guys.  Then we went on to the newest custody facility on the property for an hour long tour. We continued a tour of the grounds and then went to the officer's dining room for lunch, and after lunch we were treated to dessert. Thanks to Grace Elliott, who baked a delicious chocolate cake which was served to us and any employees lucky enough to be in the dining room with us. After lunch we made a brief stop at the sheriff's emporium where the ladies were able to shop.
Thanks again for participating!
