President’s Message 
        Happy Holidays to all of you! Hope your holidays are wonderful and all you want them to be! It seems like just yesterday that I wrote my first President’s message, and now it is time to write the last one. The time we have shared together has gone quickly and the experiences and accomplishments many. Hope you have made new friends and have enjoyed experiencing all the Newcomers Club has to offer.

       November was a busy month for many. While we still attended our favorite activities, we were busy making preparations for the Thanksgiving holiday whether we stayed at home or traveled far. Many of us enjoyed the lovely coffee held at the home of Stephanie Brown and also the wonderful cocktail party at the home of Deb Adams. Thank you, ladies, for hosting these activities and sharing your beautiful homes with all of us.

       This month starts out with our Holiday Dinner Dance Gala promised to be “The Social Event of the Season!" Thanks to Jacquie Leary and Kathy Wesche for working their magic and organizing this wonderful event.

       As 2014 comes to a close, I reflect on all that we have experienced together. We have made new friends, learned new skills and learned about different places in the world. We were generous with our time and money. We gave almost $19,000 to various charities this year!  That is quite an accomplishment.  Thanks to the Community Service Committee who work so hard with the Give a Heart and Purple Elephant luncheons as well as taking care of the 50/50 raffle at each luncheon and the Newcomers Golf Group that also worked hard this year and hosted a very successful golf charity event raising $13,000 of the monies we gave to charity. Good job, everyone!

       We have shared the good times and the sad times with one another this year. We have lost some of our longtime members and friends and they will be sorely missed but not forgotten. Some of our members have experienced health issues and personal losses. Our hearts go out to them and hope that in some small way, the Newcomers Club has made a difference in their lives and helped them through some difficult times. As you have probably noticed by now, we are more than a “Club.” We are an extended family that nurtures, cares and loves one another. For those who have just joined, please know that as you participate and identify those people who are special to you, you will form a bond and will soon wonder what you ever did without them!

       We have now reached 626 members, women whom I have enjoyed meeting and getting to know. I have said many times that the Newcomers Club of Amelia Island is the success it is because of the wonderful and talented women who are its leaders and members. And it is true. I thank everyone for the parts they play whether it is in a leadership role or those of you who attend and support the various activities and events we hold. Thank you for the privilege and the pleasure of serving as your President in 2014.

       I wish for all of you a wonderful, happy holiday and all good things in the New Year
