President's Letter

President’s Message for DECEMBER, 2012


Love makes the world go round.  As we once again decorate our homes for the holiday season, a heartfelt Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas to one and all.

The generosity of our members and their giving spirit never ceases to amaze me as was evident at our November luncheon.  The donations of food and toiletries were truly love in action.  Thanks to all of you for sharing the spirit of hope.

'Cause love makes the world go 'round and around.
Love makes the world go 'round!
Your pulse will beat and your heart will pound,
'Cause love makes the world go 'round.
Written by Bob Merrill for the 1961 musical "Carnival"

Just a gentle reminder that we will gather unwrapped toys with a value of $10 or more at our December luncheon.  Your toy may give a child a lasting memory.  The Canyon Theater Guild will perform some numbers from the play "White Christmas."

Thanks again for the holiday cheer.

Happy New Year, Newcomers!

Dream big dreams,

Donna Jones, President, Newcomers & Friends

AFTERNOON TEA GROUPS

Our wonderful Nalini Amin was hostess of the November Tea. It was a Thanksgiving theme with a challenging quiz.

How many of you know who the Native American woman that travelled with Lewis and Clark, was?  Can you tell us about her?  And that is just a sample of the questions asked on the quiz.

Nalini, along with her co hostesses, created a lovely and warm and welcoming Tea that will surely be long remembered by the guests.
                            
Thank You Nalini, Rita and Carla.  I know you three and I knew you would do a great job!
 
Now on to the December Tea which will be on December 11th at 1 pm.  There are only 2 seats left so call now if you would like to join us for Christmas Tea.
                
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all.
