September 2015 Newsletter

Dear Newcomers,

We are pleased to present to you the new official LNC Logo!

I’d just like to take this opportunity to reflect on my 2 year role as co-president, to thank you all for your support. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being part of planning our monthly activities as well as being present at most of them! Mark and I have met so many wonderful friends in this group. We will continue coming to events in the future too! You will be in great hands as I hand over the reigns to Sheila Tweeddale and April Ziegler, your new co-presidents.

Thank you to all our committee and board members for an outstanding year! We met new friends, learned new things, ate great food, drank good wine, read interesting books, played games, traveled and had amazing parties. We enjoyed getting to know everyone. If you meet new neighbors or friends over the summer, please remember to invite them to join Lexington Newcomers!

Hope you had a wonderful summer, safe travels and I look forward to seeing you at the fall kick-off party in September.

Those Who Save Us” by Jenna Blum

Combining a passionate, doomed love story, a vivid evocation of life during the war, and a poignant mother/daughter drama, Those Who Save Us is a profound exploration of what we endure to survive and the legacy of shame.
