President’s Message

Grace is a power that comes in and transforms a moment to something better.
~ Caroline Myss

In our busy lives where there is lots of hustle and bustle, it is good to take a moment to just enjoy our world and all its mysteries. That is what we will be doing at our March meeting as we experience the beauty of the underwater world through the eyes of our speaker, climatologist and environmentalist Tim Duane.

To enhance your experience, we are sending you the following link to view at your leisure. Please enjoy the spectacular beauty of the underwater world – Ocean in 3D.

You are reminded that we have a special reservation policy for the April Fashion Show. Members only will have an opportunity to make reservations from March 1 through April 1. This policy gives priority to members. The luncheon will have assigned seating. If you wish to have a group seated together, please be sure to send your reservations together with checks indicating your lunch choice.

After April 1, guests may make reservations and members may continue to make reservations on a space available basis. This is one of our most popular luncheon meetings and is often oversubscribed so you are encouraged to reserve early. Our reservations chairperson will establish a waiting list to handle all requests.

Because there is additional expense unique to the fashion show to make it special for everyone, the cost will increase to $32 per person. See the Fashion Show reservations section for more information.

Newcomers Club Community Table

The purpose of the Newcomer’s Club Community Table is to provide our members with 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
