A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
One More Time!
As a choral director in my working days, I loved the text of a piece as much as a beautiful melody.So, it should come as no surprise to you in reading these messages, how I love a good quote.Today, it is this one that caught my attention:Spring is God's way of saying, "One more time! " (Robert Orben).
Once again, Cary Newcomers Club has much of which to be proud this year.Our membership is at a healthy level and we continue to draw potential members from our ever expanding communities.Our new-newcomers have an assortment of interesting backgrounds and are interested in the experiences we can offer.Their enthusiasm and friendliness fits right in with rest of us!Please keep in mind that Membership Renewals take place through May for inclusion into our printed Directory.
As ever, our activities allow everyone to connect with others according to their individual interests, while also offering the chance to learn something new.New groups have formed, some groups will close due to over-enrollment or end due to waning interest.While this natural course does not seem to have hurt the variety of activities that are offered at our Sign Up table,I hope that everyone realizes that it is easy to start up a new Special Interest… all we need is a leader with a good idea!
Continually, our monthly programs and annual special events have all been successful at keeping us entertained.The Holiday Party, Fund Raising Game Day and Spring Fashion Show are great fun.We look forward to the continuation of these in the coming year.
At our General Business meeting in May, we will have a review of our current year and start the planning of 2017-2018.The treasurer's final report for the current year will be presented and the membership will vote on the slate of officers that was announced in April.Soon after, the old and new Executive Board will be busy with transition activities and future planning.
I hope that all of you will continue to enjoy the organization and will join us in making it find ways to make it the best it can be for everyone.Together, our efforts are our collective expression of "One more time!"
CNC President 2016-2017
New Members & Guest
We all remember what it's like to walk into an established group and be the only person who doesn't know anyone. It can be a bit overwhelming. This monthly brunch provides a great opportunity for prospective and new members to get to know each other in a casual setting where other "newbies" are also anxious to make new friends. At the same time, you can learn more about Cary Newcomers Club activities and events!
This monthly brunch is designed for anyone who is relatively new to CNC or is thinking about joining. Please come and get to know other people just like you! If you're a member and have someone you'd like to introduce to CNC, please come and bring them. And if you've attended before and want to come back and meet other new people, please join us.
Let's have some fun eating and sharing different foods together!
Meeting the 3rd Saturday of the month.
Sign ups available at the general meeting
Meditation is an ancient practice. Quieting the mind my making it more open, calm, and friendly, helps to create a sense of well being and peacefulness. At each meeting meditation instruction will be given followed by sitting together; there will be time for questions and discussion, as well as a social break over tea, coffee and simple treats. We end with a meditation session. Meetings are open to everyone; no prior experience required, experienced meditators and those who have done meditation within a medical/pain relief model are encouraged to attend.
