Welcome back to all who left for cooler places for the summer and are
returning back to our beautiful island. Hope you enjoyed your time away and are
ready to again enjoy all the Newcomers Club of Amelia Island has to offer.
We missed you! It is hard to
believe, but the elections for the 2015 Executive Board and the appointment of
Activity & Committee chairs is almost upon us! The Election of officers
will take place at the Annual General Meeting in October at our monthly
luncheon. A big thank you goes out to the Nominating Committee members
consisting of Jacquie Leary, Debbra Sullivan and Linda Campbell. They have done
an excellent job of selecting the slate for the 2015 Executive Board and
filling the open positions for the Activity & Committee Chairs. The slate
for the 2015 Executive Board will be presented in the October newsletter.
Please plan to attend this very important meeting.

much fun to dance to! Thanks to Dawn Juds, Jessica Styers and Deeda Luallen for
hosting a very enjoyable evening.
The Gourmet Group outdid
itself at the culinary event at the Blue Bamboo Restaurant. All enjoyed the
interactive cooking class and dinner afterwards. Thanks to Gigi Feazell, Deeda
Luallen andDebbra Sullivan.
Our September luncheon
this month is at the Cummer Museum. Come for a docent-led tour of the museum
and a delicious lunch. In the afternoon, you can explore the gardens and the
museum for an in-depth look at the collections.

addresses were first included in the Newcomer Yearbook in the year 2000? I
