President’s Message for December 2018
This is the time of year we are busy with holiday shopping, parties and activities. Our club activities offered this month are wonderful! Fifty members attended the beautiful Bellamy Mansion today and 50 more are going to Mike’s Farm Christmas dinner and show next week. We also have hiking, bowling, dining, and games on the schedule this month so check your calendar!
Our next General meeting is on Friday, the 14th starting at 9:30. Our club now has over 400 members and we all enjoy the snacks with coffee during our Meet and Greet before the meeting. We need your help! We currently need 12 to 15 people to donate a snack to share this month. Please go to the club calendar for December 14th and let us know we can count on you.
Our speakers this month will be Ms. Shelley Morse, Director of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) and Mr. John Grimes, Chief of Fire and Emergency Services, Leland.
December is a month known for giving so we hope you will come to our meeting this month with canned goods for a Christmas food drive we are doing for the Brunswick Family Assistance program. They have served for 35 years as a private non-profit 501(c)(3) entity in Brunswick County and are helping countless people in need. Their current focus is on long-term recovery efforts from the hurricane as well as providing regular services including food, financial and other disaster assistance. If you would like to make a financial donation, please make your check payable to “Brunswick Family Assistance”. Several of our Newcomers will be delivering the canned goods and financial donations soon after the General meeting. We are such a giving organization with our time, talents and resources and we appreciate anything you are able to do. We’ll see you on Friday the 14th!
Nita Butera, President
