November President’s Message

Are you ready to polish your halo and be a Christmas Angel? Nevada County Newcomers Club members are gearing up for the holidays with our Christmas Families Project. This newsletter is full of ideas about how you can help during this especially busy time of year. So read on and volunteer to be part of the fun.

I hope you enjoyed participating in our October Auction Luncheon. Many thanks to all who helped make this event so wonderful.

Be sure to come to our next luncheon, the annual Christmas Luncheon, on December 6.  This event will sell out so make your reservation before the deadline of November 20. We are privileged to have Richard Altenbach (a world-renowned violinist) and friends performing a piece of music composed just for us as well as holiday favorites. For more details read on!

Our next newsletter will be coming to you in early January.

I sincerely wish each of you a most happy and healthy Holiday Season with this little thought:

“Life is full of give and take. Give thanks and take nothing for granted.”

Newcomers Club Community Table

The purpose for 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
