President's Corner - January
How January got its name:
"Ruler of new beginning, gate and doors, the first hour of the day, the first day of the month and the first month of the year, the Roman god Janus gave January its name. He was pictured as twoheaded (both heads bearded) and situated so that one head looked forward into the new year while the other to a retrospective view. Janus also presided over the temple of peace, where the doors were opened only during war time. It was a place of safety, where new beginnings and new resolutions could be forged just as the New Year is a time for new objectives and renewed commitments to long-term goals."
As we look forward to 2018, we also look back and reflect on 2017. Hopefully, it was a good year if not an interesting year. If you make any resolutions, I hope one includes attending more Newcomer events. Our luncheons have been very informative with interesting speakers. We have had some very different Gadabout events, we have a newly-formed Themed Lunch group, and all the other activities are thriving. Making new friends would be an excellent resolution! After all the excitement of the holidays and the big climax of New Year's Eve, January can seem pretty slow and boring. Use these quiet times to replenish and make good on those resolutions!
Here's wishing you and your family a healthy and happy 2018!
Sandie Irvin, President
“May light always surround you; hope kindle and rebound you. May your hurts turn to healing; your heart embrace feeling. May wounds become wisdom; every kindness a prism. May laughter infect you; your passion resurrect you. May goodness inspire your deepest desires. Through all that you reach for, may your arms never tire”. -D. Simone
