It feels as if we’ve been waiting a long time, but finally the days are longer and the daffodils are blooming! It was wonderful to see so many of you at our April General Meeting. Our membership numbers are larger than they’ve ever been at 656 members. The attendance showed that we certainly are ready to get out and meet with others, make new friends, and learn about our community. This is a sure sign that we are ready to leave Covid behind us and get back to normalcy. With better weather approaching for outdoor events and activities and so many members vaccinated and boosted, Covid will hopefully remain in our rear-view mirror!
At our May meeting we will be asked to vote to elect the 2022-2023 Board members as proposed by our Nominating Committee. Each year we are fortunate to discover untapped talent in members who bring their skills, fresh ideas, and much energy to our club. The slate was presented to you at our April 14 th meeting and is included in this newsletter. At the May12 th General Membership Meeting you will be asked to vote to approve the 2022-2023 slate of officers. Many thanks to the Nominating Committee chaired by Jeanne Fortier and which included Bobbie Stevens, Eleanor Fothergill, John Huse, and Judy Pooley for their service to the club and for presenting such a great Board for next year!
At our June General Meeting the 2022-2023 Board will be installed as we celebrate Falmouth Newcomers and the 38 years we’ve been working together “Creating Opportunities for Community and Friendship”. Our Vice Presidents of Programs are planning a lovely event at the Coonamessett Inn. Please see the Reservation Form in this Newsletter and join us for this special event.
I look forward to meeting you at our Socials, Programs, and Activities. Choose what interests you and enjoy Spring!
Geri Smith, President Newcomers Club of Falmouth
