“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."

Open enrollment was held during the month of January and I am so happy to extend a warm welcome to our newest members. New members from the 2016-2017 club year will have a red sticker on their luncheon name tag to help identify them and make it easier to say hello and introduce yourself. Our new members’ contact information is listed in the newsletter as are any updates or additions throughout the year. This is a good time to cut out and tape those additions/updates found in the newsletter into your directory so that it will be up to date.

The best weather months are finally upon us! Low humidity, dry days and cooler weather make for ideal conditions. While we are enjoying this beautiful weather many of our northern friends are packing their suit cases to leave the cold and come to visit. If you are feeling like a tour guide, and host of a Bed and Breakfast, don’t panic or worry that you won’t know how to entertain your guests. Please keep in mind that Newcomer members are experts in many different areas such as what restaurants to try, new areas to explore and where the best shopping or beaches are. The chairmen of the various committees are a great resource and would be happy to answer any questions you may have. When making arrangements for your guests don’t forget to check our resource list. The list includes many useful items available for members to borrow. A complete listing is in the newsletter each month. Also, if you have any items you would like to share, please contact Resource Committee Chair.   These items are owned by the various members but they are willing to loan them to fellow Newcomer members. We are currently looking to update our baby items and are in need of newer models of car seats, cribs, etc. Entertaining made easy and fun for the hostess! When making your plans please keep in mind the great resources we have in Newcomers!

While it may seem a bit early, we are starting to look for members to fill some of the vacancies on the Executive Board. A nominating committee has been formed. This committee is tasked with filling the positions that will be left vacant on the Executive Board. The Constitution states that Executive Board members can only serve in a position for two years. Unfortunately that means several of us must move on…….Once the Executive Board is formed,  any other vacant board position (chairmen of committees) will be filled. If you are interested in serving on the Executive Board, or as a committee chairman, or would just like more information, please contact myself or one of the ladies on the nominating committee. I have had a WONDERFUL experience on the board and I am sure you will too! We have a wonderful, supportive group of board members that I know you will enjoy becoming a part of.
