October brings cooler weather, leaves changing colors and the expectation of a nice warm bowl of chili while you watch your favorite sports team on the big screen.
It seems as though we all survived summer with all the activities that it brings, and eve-rything is back in full swing for Newcomers. I am happy to report that attendance at our Coffee Meetings has been excellent. We try to keep the meeting informative about New-comer activities, so if you are interested in the pulse of NCGH, join us at the next Coffee. It is a great time to catch up with friends that you may not have seen in a while and per-haps decide to take part in an activity that is new to you.
If you do join us at a Coffee, please be sure to look at the ladies' name tags. If someone is a new member, they will have a little crown on the corner of their name tag. We want to make a special effort to make these new members feel welcome. Invite them to at-tend your favorite NCGH activity. By engaging a new member in individual activities, they meet people on a more personal basis and are more likely to become active in NCGH in the future. It is important to get new people with new ideas involved.
Our first Social of the year will take place soon. Paula Mittell and her committee have been planning this event for some time now. We will be gathering at the activity center in Kelly Springs subdivision on October 4th for cocktails, hors d' oeuvres and friendly con-versation. You will find more detailed information on the Social in this newsletter.
The Luncheon at The Ledges was lovely. Our speaker, Peggy Cole, from the Huntsville Better Business Bureau, provided us with timely information on identity theft and local scams. I understand a lively discussion followed her talk.
Paula Mittell and her committee have begun making plans for the Holiday Dinner Dance. I know many of us look forward each year to this event. This year's plans promise to be as special as always. Remember to save the date – December 6th.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all the ladies that volunteer their time and energy to NCGH to make all the activities that we enjoy possible. Without your hard work and great ideas, our club wouldn't be the success it is.
Have an enjoyable October!!
