Hello All!

Our Activity Groups/Clubs have been very active and having a lot of fun! The attendance has been fantastic! If you are not on the distribution list of groups you are interested in joining, just email the Chair/Co-Chair of the groups.

We have some exciting developments occurring in SNC! Many of you may not realize that when you sign-up to become a member what that actually means is that not only are you a member, but your significant other is as well and may join any of our Activity Groups! For our new Directory for the 2015-2016 year please feel free to include your significant other’s e-mail address and phone number. We are trying to come up with more Clubs that include both men and women! Please peruse the Newsletter below that include these opportunities. We all get so many great ideas from our membership – please keep them coming!!

Our next big event is also in May. Pat Dryden our 1st VP Programs has been working very hard planning our Annual Meeting, Spring Luncheon and Fashion Show! The event will take place on Wednesday, 13 May at Hopmeadow Country Club in Simsbury. Pat will be sending out the invitations with all of the details. This is a lovely event that you do not want to miss! After receiving the invitation, if you have any questions you can contact Pat at patdryden@comcast.net

The days are getting longer, the snow is melting and Spring is just around the corner! Yea!!! (We can finally see over most of the snow banks!!

Take care,
Hol Murphy

Civic Concerns

Position is open, click to email if interested

Several SNC members attended the Meals on Wheel information session last month and two women have signed on to share a route one day a month. If anyone is still interested here is the link to the newspaper article: http://www.courant.com/community/hc-ugc-article-donate-your-time-and-help-mcleans-meals-on-w-5-2015-01-05-story.html. Sophia Thorson runs this McLean program and can be reached at 860-658-3980. For additional volunteer opportunities at McLean, please call 860-658-3700.

The Simsbury Food pantry has year round need of canned/boxed food and toiletries. The drop off is in the Eno hall basement or at Stop & Shop.

Gifts of love needs both food and household items to help bridge the financial shortfall for working families in Hartford County. Nearly 20 percent of this assistance goes to families right here in the Farmington Valley. Spring clean-outs may be a good time to consider if something can be used by another family. The new Salvation Army store on route 44 is another location to bring clothing (good condition) and unwanted, but useful items.

As Spring (quickly??) approaches there will be outdoor opportunities to volunteer and meet people. These will be described in the April letter.

Our evening Bunko group is a casual and fun time.  We would be happy if activity members could also host, but please don’t feel intimidated about hosting, I (we) am just grateful that we have a host!  You do what you want and what you can.  If you need extra tables, I can help with that.  If you need help setting up, I can help with that also!  Looking forward to another successful year.  As the host, I will give you the option of playing for a White Elephant or $$, which is $5.25.  We had such a blast with the themes, that I would like to continue with them this year.  We will again meet at 7:30 pm and I would like to start by 8:00 pm.  I know we can get a little chatty, but some of us do have to work in the morning.

Hello Movie Lovers!

We meet the 1st Monday of the month. We do get a discount. Hand the ticket seller (at the concession area) $5. if they say it is $8. then hand them a few more dollars – it is a much better deal than the regular adult price! They also have a Monday Night Special – $5. for a small popcorn with a beverage of your choice!
You may bring anyone you wish, even a group. We are not just a ladies group, you may bring your significant other or your kids, friends, neighbors…….Enjoy!

Ladies’ Paddle Tennis

Carolyn Brand
860-408-1566

Ladies Paddle meets mornings at Simsbury Farms, on Mondays from 9:30-11 and Thursdays from 8-9:30. This outdoor game is similar to tennis, but played Nov-Mar on special raised courts. In snowy conditions, the courts are heated to melt the wintry mix. Players are rotated every week, with each person scheduled to play about twice a month. Cost for the season is usually around $50. It’s a great way to socialize with new and old friends, and to stay active through those long winter months. Our schedule is set, but if you would like to be added to the sub list, or If you have any questions, please contact Carolyn Brand at 860-408-1566. Hope to see you on the courts!

THEATRE GROUP

“The Dining Room” at Playhouse on Park was a lot of fun. 3 couples met for dinner at Arugula’s beforehand. The food was scrumptious!! A fourth couple joined in the fun, meeting at the play. “The Dining Room” was funny, fast-paced – never a dull moment.

Our May show is at Farmington Valley Stage to see the show, “5 Women Wearing the Same Dress”. The Farmington Valley Stage theatre is located at 4 Market St, in Collinsville. We are still deciding on a date and time. Tickets are very reasonable, around $20.00.

Our last scheduled show is at the Shubert Theatre in New Haven. So far we have 7 attending the Sunday June 14th matinee and 1 couple attending the June 13th evening performance.

Please call/email me if you are interested in joining us for either show.
