President’s Message

If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.
                                                                                                                                                                –Roald Dahl

I thought this quote very apt since we enjoyed songs from the musical version of Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach during the Sierra Stages performance at our May luncheon. I hope you all get to see this show this summer at the Nevada Theater.

This is our last newsletter until September. We do not meet for luncheons in July or August.  And this is my last letter to you as President. Thanks to so many who have made this such a fun two years. I couldn’t have done it without you. It is truly a group effort. A special thank you goes to the newly elected officers and to the members who have joined our board for next year.

Melissa Bryant at Bistro 221 in Nevada City has continued to let us use her back room for our board meetings each month. We enjoy lunch together after the meeting. When you go to Bistro 221 for a meal, please thank Melissa for her generosity.

Be sure to read on about our June luncheon, activities and lots more.

If I don’t get to see you this month, have a great summer!

Fashion Forward – A Great Success!

You can re-visit one of our most popular annual events, the truly fun and exciting April fashion show. Just go here to see the descriptions of the fashions, the array of photos depicting the fashions, the models, the audience, and all who made it all happen!

A huge thank you goes to our photographers for making this available to our members.

Newcomers Club Community Table

The purpose of the Newcomer’s Club Community Table is to provide our members a method of displaying a non-profit organization or group that they feel may be of interest to other members. In addition, the table helps us all to be aware of the community programs in our beautiful area. Several groups need your help and support; there are others that can guide you to a new and interesting activity. We are delighted to display a brochure or booklet for these non-profit community organizations. We ask that you do not supply materials that pertain to advertising for a business or service for personal financial gain; that is not the purpose of our table. Members are welcome to leave information at the table; the pamphlets and brochures will continue to be displayed at the community table throughout the year. We respectfully request that we not be asked to display political, religious or any subject matter that is of a highly controversial nature. If you have any questions; please do not hesitate to contact the Historian at the email address or phone number in your roster. Here is a current list of pamphlets and brochures: 

Bear Yuba Land Trust, Cancer Aid Thrift Shop, Friendly Visitors & Telephone Reassurance Volunteers, Friends of AAUW, Friends of Hospice, Gold Country Wildlife Rescue, Habitat for Humanity (Cars for Homes), Helpline Information & Assistance for Nevada County, Music in the Mountains, Nevada County Habitat for Humanity (Building Homes Building Lives), Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum, Nevada County Resource Conservation District, Nevada County’s Golden History, North Star Historic Conservancy, ReStore Habitat for Humanity, Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, The Friendship Club, Wildlife Rehabilitation & Rescue, and Women of Worth
