President’s Post November 2021

October 31, 2021

Brrrrrr….Hello everyone and hope you are all well and safe!  We have many things offered during our fall/winter months. 

RSVP

Please check the Calendar regularly for events, and RSVP on the website for ALL activities, including Coffees.  This helps our Group Leaders to prepare and if necessary, send messages to those who have RSVP’d.  We are always open to new ideas, new interest groups, or special activities for daytime or evenings. Thank-you to all our volunteers that keep our organization going!  

COVID

Concerning the pandemic, the Board agreed that our Club require attendees to all events be vaccinated. Masks are optional. We are also closely watching our local and CDC guidelines for updates and will adjust our guidelines as needed.

Welcome New Members

Social Media

We have a Facebook account, Morgantown Newcomers Club, that is Public. Denise Berrebi, Publicity Director will post upcoming Special Events. If you choose to post on the site, remember to ask permission of those in the pictures you post, as well as keeping the contact of postings strictly relevant to our Club and our activities. The best way to share pictures is to send them to our Historian Director, Ann Siochi. She will organize photos and preview them before they become public.

We also have a Private Chat on Facebook. This is available to members who wish to share personal photos and information.  Please contact Jane Taylor if you wish to be invited into this group.

Website Profile: You may wish to check your profile under Members on our website and make changes (add info or a photo of yourself) as needed.  

Service to our Community

After listening to Beth Currence from LIBERA, we will be writing letters to teens in need at our next Coffee. 

Fundraising

My ENJOY Dining and Coupon Books are still for sale.  These offer great  savings and useful gifts to others who live in this area!  We receive $10 per book profit.  Contact Denise Berrebi for orders.

Morgantown Community Newcomers Club T-SHIRTS!

More information will be coming soon about ordering Club T-shirts with our logo. Thanks to Jane McCracken and team for working on this.

We hope to see all our members involved in these activities! There are many ways to socialize, and keep yourself active. Don’t be afraid to jump in if you haven’t been active. As Newcomers Members we are committed to promote new friendships while also enjoying what our Morgantown community offers, as well as exploring the surrounding areas.

Denise Berrebi and Ann Siochi
