December Program:  Richard Altenbach 

Richard Altenbach, formerly 1st Violinist of the Los Angeles Chamber, LA Opera, Joffrey Ballet, and Houston Symphony Orchestras, and currently first chair for the InConcert Sierra Orchestra and the Auburn symphony, is preparing a beautiful musical program with three or four other musicians. He is composing one of the works especially for us. Richard has performed live on the Academy Awards (including 2014) and The Tonight Show, and has collaborated with Frank Sinatra, YoYo Ma, Barbra Streisand, Mannheim Steamroller and Puff Daddy among many others. We are fortunate that he is bringing this program to Newcomers. Join your friends and get into the holiday spirit!

Table Reservation Policy for the December Luncheon

If you wish to make a single reservation, submit your check made out to Newcomers Club and write your luncheon choice on the bottom of your check. You will be welcomed by our reservations team at the luncheon and given a seat that has been pre-assigned to you.

You may create a group from two to eight people for this event – maximum of eight per table. For reservations with fewer than eight, your table will be completed with other members.

There are two ways to make table reservations for your group:

1) The Head Person for your group collects all the checks (made out to Newcomers Club in the correct amount) and lists what each person wants for lunch either on the lower left hand corner of each check or on a group list. Mail the checks together as directed above.

OR

2) The Head Person for your group may write one check for everyone in the group and provide a list of attendees along with each of their lunch requests.

Please ensure that each person’s meal choice is noted on the checks or on your list of tablemates.

Note:  All attendees will have assigned seating.

Only ONE (1) Guest per member 

Note: If someone must cancel from a reserved table prior to the cancellation date, the Head Person will need to advise the Reservation Chair for December. Her information can be found in your Newsletter. After the cancellation date, there will not be a refund, and any substitute will have to take the “originally” ordered lunch choice.

January Luncheon Meeting

January 24, 2018

Alta Sierra Country Club

Luncheon Meeting at 11:30 am

Cost: $23.00 per person 

 

January Program:  Supplemental and Alternative Medicine 

Attended by medical physicians, therapists and others, the California College of Ayurveda provides training and information on pain relief beyond prescription drugs. Much of mainstream medicine already incorporates alternative practices such as acupuncture and chiropractic into its treatment protocols.

Ayurveda representatives Amanda Parish and Tiffany Rousseau-Robinson will provide information on some of the alternatives available to assist in relieving pain like that which occurs from Lyme disease. This should be an interesting departure from the more formal medical presentations we’ve had in the past.

January Luncheon Menu

Choice of

Meat Loaf Tournedos – meatloaf medallions wrapped in bacon and served with a bourbon peppercorn demi-glace and rice pilaf

Panko Crusted Chicken Parmesan with provolone and Parmesan cheese, served with house marinara, rice pilaf and fresh garlic bread

Portabella Eggplant Napoleons stacked with fresh Parmesan, tomatoes and basil, topped with marinara and Alfredo sauces and served with a creamy herbed risotto

Seating at Regular Luncheons 

Among the many benefits of belonging to the Newcomers Club is our monthly luncheon where you have the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful program and visit with your friends and acquaintances. However, if you arrive with a group of friends close to the time when lunch is served (11:30 am), it makes it very difficult for the Greeters to find you adjacent seats. Therefore, if two, three, or four of you wish to be seated together, please try to arrive earlier rather than later.

Luncheon Raffles

The luncheon raffles are an important part of the Newcomers Club budget. They support all of our activities.There are four to five prizes raffled at each luncheon. Tickets are $1 each, or $5 for six tickets, or $10 for fifteen.

Thank you to all the members who support our organization by buying raffle tickets.
