MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Still so much to Learn…
Close to marking our third year in Cary, my husband and I recently found ourselves stopped at the entrance of our community, debating (not arguing, I promise!) whether to turn right or left to get to a regularly visited set of stores. Neither one of us was certain and we laughed to think that our mutual senior moment could reacquaint us with the experience of brand-new newcomers. Last month's General Meeting presentation by Cary's Parks and Recreation Department showed we not-so-new newcomers just how much there is still to learn about our parks and greenways, arts venues and educational offerings. Every time I get together at with CNC friends, talk inevitably focuses on interesting books, day trip adventures, dining discoveries, upcoming concerts or exhibits and even worthwhile television programs. I am always making lists! As I am fond of repeating, the term Newcomer has a very broad definition in our organization. The desire to learn new things and meet new people is perhaps the best motivation among the many reasons to join our wonderful group and I hope all our members will find such opportunities in the coming year. In September, we plan to fine tune the set up of St. Michael's Conference Center. To start, we will use fewer tables and arrange some "auditorium" seating to create more comfortable space at our meetings. The membership will vote to approve this year's designated Charity and Go-PlaySave books will be on sale as our first fund raiser. We will keep you apprised of other new ideas in the coming months. In anticipation of a fine year ahead, I invite you to join us in planning and participating in our various activities and we look forward to welcoming you.

SEPTEMBER GENERAL MEETING Our presenter this month will be Tracy Callahan, founder of the Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation. Tracy founded this non-profit organization in 2015. The organization funds research, raises awareness and educates the community about melanoma (skin cancer). She will be speaking about screenings and keeping yourself safe from the sun.
We hope you can join us!
SIGHTSEEKERS' SEPTEMBER EVENT
Join us for a guided tour of the WW I exhibit at the NC Museum of History followed by lunch at Cafe Luna, a short walk from the museum. Sign up at the September 6 General Meeting.
Carpooling is available.
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.
