Summer Newsletter

A few words from the LNN co-presidents:

As this LNN season comes to a close we want to thank everyone for another amazing year, especially our super-dedicated volunteer board.  They ensured LNN ran smoothly by taking care of administrative tasks like signing up new members, paying bills, maintaining the website and ensured members had lots of fun by organizing parties, bunco, book club, walking group, lunch bunch, escapes, and much more.  A special thanks to our outgoing board members for all of their years of service:  Judi Riveness, Kessa Glisic, Nassma Halaseh Matalka, Lana Bastianutti, Lesley Segal and Deb Zucker.  You will all be missed on the board, but hope to keep seeing you at LNN events!

Hope to see you at Saturday’s “Food From Across The World” party as well as the other June events!  Look for our mid-August newsletter for a list of fall events.  Have a happy and healthy summer.  See you in September!

Kind regards,
Pam and Katie (co-presidents)
