President’s Letter

Hello all!  Well, another Fall coming to a close with Winter just around the corner...
 
Our November luncheon was held at the Valencia Country Club - another event well done by everyone where we all enjoyed a wonderful traditional Thanksgiving meal.

Our most sincere thanks to our VIP guest speakers, Santa Clarita Mayor  Marsha Mclean and Mayor pro-tem Laurie Ender. They were both extremely informative on past, present and future projects concerning the Santa Clarita Valley. 

We were also honored to have Special Guest, Claire McWilliams, join us to celebrate her 100th birthday - what an incredible inspiration she is!
 
The Christmas luncheon will be held at the Odyssey Restaurant in Northridge on December 8th  at 11:00am.  Please send your $30.00 check to Kay Moioffer by November 28.  Also be sure to send your reservations and menu selections to Pat Passalacqua 

Please remember to bring a $10.00 (unwrapped) Toys for Tots gift to help a child enjoy a brighter holiday.  I'm really looking forward to this occasion and spending it with my Newcomer friends.
 
This holiday is about gratitude.  Thanks to you all for making the season so special.  I want to wish everyone a very Happy Holidays.
 
Looking forward to seeing you in December!
 
Carol Maul
President, Newcomers & Friends

Activities

From Shirley Birnholz, Activities Chairman: 

Thanks to everyone who expressed an interest in either joining an existing game or forming some new groups.  Topping the list is MAH JONG, both experienced players and those who want to learn.  It looks as if there could be enough people interested in playing BRIDGE to form a group.  A few people would like to play PAN and HORSE RACE RUMMY.  There has even been an offer of a home to meet once a month for BUNCO with enough room for 3 tables!  If you have any further requests or ideas please contact me at shirley@birnholz.com

Note to Chair People: Please review the activities schedule for accuracy.  If there have been any changes let me know.
                                 Happy gaming....  Shirley Birnholz

CLUB TEA PARTIES

Thank You Kitty Z for a wonderful Afternoon Tea at your lovely home.
 
Wow, we had such a great time at the November tea.  New faces and familiar ones too. The  treats were so tasty and the company was delightful.
                                                    
Kitty and her co hostess, Lorrie did a super job of making all feel welcome.  January is full but there are still a few spots for March so don't forget to call Ginger or Jodie if you can make it in March.  It is the second Tuesday, at 1:00 at Jodie Baker's home in Valencia.
                                                   
Also, if you come, brush up on your current events so that you can take part in the “Quiz".
                                                   See You Then, Ginger Freed and Jodie Baker

VAGABONDS

Giovanna Cabaret, Alyce Kesselman, Sharon Welch

As you must have heard, the October Vagabonds trip on the party bus was a rousing success.  We were so happy that YOU were so happy!  We had a wonderful trip too.

Now that we are facing December with its excitement, activities and wonder, we wish all of you a most healthy, joyous and peaceful holiday season.   May you have a splendid New Year.

In 2012, we hope that even more of you will take the opportunity to experience the world of the Party Bus.  With this in mind, we are proud to be able to offer.

A SURE BET for 2012!!!!!

Vagabonds is off and running in a slightly different direction!

Santa Anita Racetrack on Thursday, February 2, 2012

Wishing you all a wonderful Holiday.
