Executive Board 2016-2017

The first general meeting and luncheon of the 2016-2017 membership years was held at one of the club’s favorite restaurants, Brio’s. The Second Annual Activity Fair was well attended before the luncheon and once again was a huge success. Activity Chairmen created impressive displays to showcase their activity and to share information with the general membership. Questions were answered and sign up sheets were filled by interested members. If you were unable to attend, and would like to be included in learning more about an activity, please contact the activity’s Chairman. Their name and contact information can be found in each Newsletter issue and in the club Directory.

I am thrilled to share with you that one of our members has generously offered to chair Gad Abouts. Gads is a very popular activity that did not yet have a chairman for this year. Being a new resident to Tampa, our new Gads Chair was disappointed it might not be offered this year so she stepped up and did something about it!!!! She loved learning about the Tampa Bay Area and visiting points of interest while meeting other members and felt strongly that it should continue. A huge THANK YOU for making Gads happen this year! This active member is also a co-chair of our Community Service Committee!

Please join me in welcoming our newest members. Four new members joined us during the summer and 4 new members have joined under Open Enrollment in August. A welcome coffee was held at a member's home on September 8. The coffee was a fun opportunity for the board members and new members alike to meet. Board members spoke about their activity, answered questions and shared all that Newcomers of Northwest Hillsborough has to offer. A friendly reminder that a red sticker on a member’s name badge indicates she is a newer member and has been a member for under a year. Please extend a warm Newcomers welcome. Just one kind word or smile will make you both feel  good! Our next opportunity for open enrollment is during the month of January.

We have a wonderful group of members and I am excited about all the opportunities that are being planned to get together to enjoy each other’s company. Thank you to all of you who work tirelessly behind the scenes to keep our club the success it is!

“Too often we underestimate the power
       of a touch, a smile, a kind word,
a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring,
all of which have the potential
to turn a life around."
