Downtown Morgantown Shop Hop
(submitted by Sally Kirkpatrick)

Our July Special Activity, “Downtown Morgantown Shop Hop” was a big success. We had seven women attend and meet at the Old Stone House to start shopping around 9:30am.  A few of the shops changed their opening time from 10:00am to 11:00am during COVID and will probably keep those hours, so check operating hours of shops if you are heading downtown.  We purchased merchandise at almost all of the 13 shops we visited.  We found lots of good items, so don’t be afraid to head downtown and support our local shop owners.  Von Blaze, the new restaurant where we ate lunch, was delicious!!!  I plan to get back there very soon to try a few more menu items.  My lobster dog was delicious.  Our Newcomers ladies contributed to the downtown economy roughly in the amount  of $700.00.  This was a great idea, so we will try it again at other areas around Morgantown and nearby communities.

Please let me know if you have any other ideas for Special Activities.  Thank you.

Our Community Service Project for Fall
(submitted by Karen Lane, Community Service Director)

As I mentioned at the September coffee, it came as a shock to me to find out that there are many girls in our county who miss school because they cannot afford to buy feminine products every month.  I’d love to see us help Pantry Plus More stock their shelves and the shelves of the “In-school” pantries with feminine products for our sweet ladies who need access to them.  For those not familiar with what they do, here is their website: Pantry Plus More

Our ladies can buy feminine products, both pads and tampons.  They can bring them to the coffee and or luncheon in October or bring/ship to my house:

Karen Lane
9 Mont Chateau Est
Morgantown, WV 26508

And at the end of October I can deliver them to Pantry Plus More!

This is a perfect time to volunteer for us!  Each year we need to have positions filled to either serve on our Board or lead an Interest Group. You may also be interested in helping in an area, but choose not to be on the Board. No problem…WE NEED YOU!!!

If the pandemic has got you down, this is the time to try something new and get involved.  Please contact Denise Berrebi or Ann Siochi if you are interested or have questions.

Website Director

We fund a webmaster who has developed and maintains our website, but we need someone who will manage and update the face of our website, under an administrator access mode.  Jane Taylor, our current website director is happy to teach the next person.

Fundraising Director

We need someone who can lead a committee in planning fundraising events. These funds help meet our discretionary budget needs. In the past, an Auction was held in the Fall. This can be the focus again, or other ideas are welcome.

*Next fundraising event:  “POUND SALE” on May 4 at the monthly Coffee.  Please bring a pound of “something” and wrap it. Big or little package, let’s see what a pound is worth! Bids will begin at $5 and we will auction off the items!  Let’s fundraise and have fun, too!

Interest Group Leaders

Any member may create a new Interest Group. The more ideas we have, the more activities to participate in!

We have had the following groups inactive. You may be interested in resurrecting the group or starting something new!

Spring is almost here!  Lots of rain, clouds, and muddy lawns, but we welcome a respite from the cold and hopefully, the COVID pandemic.

 

COVID Update

 

Following local county trends and CDC guidelines, we will be back to in person gatherings beginning on March 15, our monthly Luncheon. Ann Siochi is following the pandemic closely and completed a detailed report on February 22 to guide us in this decision. We still require vaccinations, and masks are optional.

 

Calendar

 

Our website is the best source to check what is going on in our Club. Our Directors and Interest Group Leaders will post activities and require an RSVP on the Calendar tab.  Please check it often, so you don’t miss an opportunity to join us!

 

We are excited to see everyone at our next Luncheon at the Lakehouse Restaurant on March 15 at 11:30. Our Speaker will be Bessie Fooks presenting information about the Giving Circle.

Our Walking Group continues to meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:00AM at various safe locations around town (Mon River Trail, Botanic Gardens, Star City, etc.) Great way to get your daily steps in!

BUNCO…an easy dice game is back!  This is a fun way to get some laughs in, (maybe a bit of wine, too!) and win some cash. No need to know how to play because it’s easy and we will show you.

Do you like trying new restaurants (or dining at local favorites)? Our Casual Dining Group meets once a month at a designated place to enjoy lunch together.

Time to dig up that old craft you never finished or bring something you are working on…and join the Not Just Pins and Needles group.  We share ideas, and knit, sew, quilt, needle point, crochet, or whatever craft you enjoy while enjoying company and a coffee break.

Our Wine Tasting Group meets monthly on Saturday evenings. Ron Porter offers wines to taste, and members provide the appetizers and desserts. Bring a friend, family member or spouse and you won’t go home “unhappy”!

 

Newcomers T-shirts and Bags

 

You should have received an e-mail about ordering these items. This is a new idea to show our support of the Club and publicize our mission to others. Please contact Carol Spears with any questions you have about ordering.  We designed the T-Shirts in either white or blue with our logo, and the bags are perfect for shopping or picnicking since they are insulated.

 

Service Project

 

We will be wrapping books to send to inmates for the Appalachian Prison Book Project at our next Coffee on April 6 at Melinda Edward’s house. If you happen to have used Poetry books, or new ones to donate, that would be helpful for the book drive Judy Panagakos is organizing. Note: The Book Project only accepts softcover books.

 

WE NEED YOU!!

 

This is a perfect time to volunteer for us!  Each year we need to have positions filled to either serve on our Board or lead an Interest Group.

We hope everyone had a safe holiday and best wishes for a Happy New Year!

 

Covid

 

Once again, we need to exercise caution against Covid 19 and its variants, therefore, we are postponing in person gatherings for the month of January. The exclusion will be the ongoing Walking Group that continues to walk outdoors, weather permitting. If you have “increase exercise” as a New Year’s Resolution, then this is a perfect opportunity to get moving, enjoy the beautiful nature of our state, and chat with our members.

 

Calendar

 

Check our calendar regularly, since activities may be offered on Zoom. We are proud to have been able to offer many options that bring us in contact with each other. If you haven’t yet joined one of these Zoom offerings, don’t be shy- it’s easy as pie!  Ann Siochi, our Zoom Director leads the way and offers help to join in online.

If you have an item or idea for us, contact a Board Member and your voice will be heard.

Fundraising

 

 

Fundraising

 

The Enjoy Dining and Coupon books sold well and we made $410 in profit. If you have any ideas to further our efforts to raise money, please reach out!  We cannot exist on our dues only, since there are budgetary expenses we must meet. Unfortunately, the Annual Auction has been cancelled the last two years, and we have not made solid plans for a future event this Spring.

 

Newcomers Club T-Shirts

 

Some of our members have researched the idea of providing T-shirts for sale. We would like to offer a V-neck style, in either white or royal blue, with our Logo (the Pineapple). Soon you will receive a picture of the T-shirts and order form. Hopefully, all our members will purchase these and we will use them as community publicity as well.

Our Annual Morgantown Newcomers Welcome Picnic was a great success!

The weather was perfect and Coopers Rock was a beautiful setting for an early Fall event. We had about 50 guests and everyone had a wonderful time! The food was catered by Backyard BBQ in Cheat Lake and we donated untouched leftovers and water to the Community Kitchen and Circle of Friends. Thank-you to all who could come, all who lent a hand, and to Sally Kirkpatrick for organizing the event and Jenny Robbins for the decorations and Raffle baskets.
