Happy and healthy New Year to all of you
and to all you hold dear.
Bring In the Olde -
Keep out the Blue
(A New Year’s poem for our members)
Women’s Club had a really good year,
Starting off January with lots of cheer.
We did a lot through winter and spring,
So many programs - we do our thing.
That will always be our goal,
Like learning laws from Professor Coll.
And the profs from St. Johns with their
Howard Ehrlich and Harvey Sackowitz.
The year unfolded with work and conjectures,
Planning trips, luncheons and lectures.
Nassau Museum was one of our venues,
And the Jolly Fisherman with special menus.
Bussed to theaters as the program grows,
Special dinner at wonderful Umberto’s.
Marilyn Carminio added much to our list,
And our workshops were really hard to resist.
We had Italian Night to keep in the hub,
And now we have the Cinema Club.
A steering committee that really steers
And a program group does much for peers.
Now it’s time for a brand new start,
Thank you from the bottom of our heart.
Here’s to our members in 2020,
We wish you all good health a-plenty!!!!!!

the museum and shop in their marvelous gift
Lunch will be served at 11:30am in a room
