I wonder if, as the decades pass, we become more aware of opportunities to rejoice. NCGH offers so very many small and big chances to rejoice – building friendships; nature's bounty crafted into beautiful place settings; big, funny, red noses; thoughtful expressions of care; "silly" skits; women who share with an abundance of generosity; fun activities to which we can look forward; happy memories for our quieter moments.
Rejoicing in friendship - let's continue to reach out to those among us who are newer. I remember how much a phone call, an invitation to ride to cards, kind words to come along to a lunch after coffee or to a Pot Luck all meant to me when I was new and vulnerable. I felt cared for, and my spirits lightened in the months after joining when I was still trying to find my way. We have a lot of new members; let's rejoice in building kinship with them so that they may feel the joy of friendship.
This month, we have lots of occasions to rejoice: The "Luck be a Lady Holiday Dinner Dance" (HDD) on Saturday, Dec. 5th; the Holiday Luncheon on Tuesday, Dec. 8th. The December 1st Coffee Meeting offers us the opportunity to bring items to support the FBONA for the Past Presidents' luncheon collection. Following on the November Get Acquainted Coffee, when the PPs entertained us royally with their "silly" skit (thank you, ladies!), at the December 1st Coffee, Sally Priester, also one of our own, is going to sing for us in celebration of the festive season. And what a beautiful voice Sally has!
Those of you who are coming to the HDD on the 5th and wish to support CSNA will have the opportunity to drop off your checks during the evening at a designated table. A month, rich in celebration and generosity!
Happy updates for the new year - be sure to watch for the NCGH Website Enhancement and Website Addition Notice coming soon! Also, check out the On-Stage Notice for February 21, 2016!
May you all rejoice in this Holiday Season!
