Our Newcomers year is starting to wind down, but don’t tell our Activity Chairs that! They are still busily planning lots of great year-end events to keep the momentum going. May is traditionally a busy month – everything springs back to life, including Newcomers! Not only do we have the Seventh Annual Newcomers Gala “Celebrating the Arts,” our calendar is chock full of great activities to get us out and meeting fellow Newcomers. So don’t let up yet – get your pen ready to fill in your calendar!
The Gala is always the most anticipated event of the year for Newcomers ~ we hope that you can all make it to this great celebration. It’s a perfect opportunity to reconnect with all of the members you met during the year – and meet some new! The Gala committee has been working hard for months to make sure this is a first class event, and we are so fortunate to be gathering in the spectacular Aldrich Museum again this year. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Ridgefield Public Library, which offers fantastic programs for children, teens, and adults, including movies, music performances, children’s reading hours, educational and community programs, and so much more. We’re pleased to be able to raise money for all of the fabulous programs that they offer us every day.
If you’re not able to make it to the Gala, there are still lots of other things to do this month. Men’s Golf is eagerly awaiting their tee time for Saturday, May 6th; the ever popular ladies game night, BUNCO, has its monthly gathering on May 9th; Evening Book Club is reading Unsaid, a novel by Neil Abramson and will come together on May 17 to discuss; and Weekday Tots will meet for a picnic at Ballard Park on May 18th.
Hope you’re enjoying the beautiful spring weather and taking time to get out and enjoy our wonderful town. See you at the Gala!
