Co-Vice Presidents (Membership)

Presidents' Message

We are both honored to serve as CMNC Co-Presidents for the 2013-2014 year. It is such a privilege to work with our very enthusiastic Executive Board. We are looking forward to a wonderful year, full of fellowship and new experiences for the ladies of Cheyenne Mountain Newcomers Club. Our goal this year is to continue the legacy of previous co-presidents by supporting and encouraging the activities that our amazing Activity Chairs head throughout 2013-2014. To ALL current Activity chairs, we appreciate your continued service. May this coming year bring all the support you require to continue your activity! There are currently several Chair positions available. Please volunteer and support your group so that it will remain active. Our Directory Chair has not yet been filled please don't be shy, we know there are computer pros out there for whom this would be a piece of cake! Congratulations to our Spring Luncheon Chairs - Janis Cross and Dawn Gardner-Hand. The fashion show and luncheon at the Garden of the Gods Club was a delightful event! Nancy Price-Weddle will be chairing the Winter Gala, and Pamela Street has volunteered to chair the 2014 Spring Luncheon. We are excited to hear your ideas! Friendly reminder....If you haven't already completed your membership renewal form and paid dues, please do so as soon as possible. Thank you. Summer is a time to get out and meet new friends, bring them with you to the September meeting and sign them up as new members. This is an amazing group of women, willing to share their time and knowledge with Newcomers. See you in September,

Thanks so much to all who brought goodies this past year, we always enjoy our monthly treats! All members are encouraged to think about signing up to bring goodies or provide table décor for next season. And we're still looking for more volunteer scullery maids ­ don't be shy -- remember that we're always the ones closest to the food! Have a wonderful summer.

We will resume Gleaning at the September meeting and look forward to your "ALL OUT SUPPORT" again. The donations turned in this year far exceeded those in the past and we want to THANK all who donated! Next years agenda will remain about the same check the newsletter each month for details regarding the "wish list". Never throw anything out that you no longer need if it is in reasonably good condition or in working order. ALWAYS REMEMBER that there is an ongoing need and a place somewhere for almost everything and we will find that place. Typical items we need include: kitchen and eating equipment, non-perishable food, linens (bed, bath, crib), sewing supplies, tools, books, toys, clothes, toiletries and diapers. If the size or weight of an item is beyond your ability to handle call Springs Rescue Mission at 314-2364 and Mr Robert Worrall will make arrangements to pick up and distribute your items.

Smart Phones and Tablets are here to stay! We love our IPhones and IPads and want to get the most from our Apple Devices and we are here to help you feel the same way. I bought the original IPad when it came out and found it very frustrating at first. It is not a PC and "thinks differently" than a PC. I Know! Now I can't live without both my IPhone and IPad and I'm always in the hunt for something useful to discuss when we meet. Always learning something new is My Mantra! It keeps us young and smart! So join us if you have an "I" something or are thinking about getting one. I now have the newest IPad and LOVE LOVE it! We have a very enthusiastic group. Please indicate your interest in meeting during the summer by emailing me. Thanks.

Our first regular meeting for the new year will be September 15th, but it will always be the first Sunday after our General Meeting, so you can mark your calendars to reserve that day for all next year. We won't meet regularly during the summer as many people are traveling, but if some movie that is absolutely compelling comes out, we may email you with an invitation anyway. Thanks to all who have supported our movie outings and parties during the year, and we hope you continue to get out and see some new ones during the summer on your own. Hugs to all you Movie Mavens out there. Margaret and Kay.

Please check with Valerie or Diana regarding any summer meetings.
