PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
 
March is here, a time of changing weather patterns. Is it spring or is it still winter? It’s also a great time of change for our club. We have grown so much in the last few years. We now have a nice, larger meeting space. And our new web site has launched. Even though these changes are really great, we know that there will be adjustments to make as we start to do things differently.
 
We are now doing just about all of our business through our website, so we ask that new members join and returning members renew on-line. Activity sign up will also be on-line. It will be a nice place to check the calendar to see what activities you might like to do. You can check the calendar, click on an activity, sign up and even pay on- line. This will eliminate trying to read all of the clipboards and sign up at the meetings. We know this will be an adjustment, so please contact any of the board members to assist you with any difficulties.

A number of you will be “graduating” from newcomers in June. We have been asked about “Newcomers Alumnae”. In the past, people who have graduated have formed groups of their own for social get-togethers, books groups, card playing, etc. Usually this happens when a few people have gotten together, done some planning, and “voila”, a group is formed.  If any of you would like to start one of these groups, we would be happy to disseminate the contact information.

As I think about change, I think of our purpose and how big an adjustment it is to settle into a new place. So please, as you socialize prior to and after the meetings, please make a point of extending a warm welcome to those who might be there for the first time. First time visitors often will be wearing the handwritten name tags.

“Accept – then act.
Whatever the present moment contains,
Accept it as if you had chosen it . . .
This will miraculously transform your whole life.”
Eckhart Tolle

Wishing You a Happy March,
Carol
