October a Trick or Treat?
Much has happened to each and every one of us these last months, but as we wind down to the last quarter of the year — for the month of October I have to ask the question — Trick or Treat?
 
TREAT… your ENC Executive and Board did not forget about their membership. ZOOM luncheons have taken place the third Thursday of the month with a featured speaker and business meeting thereafter — our way to mimic the old way of doing business. Why not join us, register and have the opportunity to socialize with your friends?
 
TREAT… your Activities Chairperson, Lynn Medini along with Webmaster, Jayne Cohen have advertised virtual events from taking you through a museum or allowing you to listen to a concert right in the comfort of your own home, or learn what Blue Zone is.
 
TREAT… communication via email blasts, newsletter and website gives the members something to partake — whether its now a ZOOM meeting to discuss your favorite book or continue to transform yarn into the most beautiful piece of clothing or blanket members stay connected.
 
TREAT… we maintained the ability of helping those in need via the credit card featured charity. Check the website for further information under charity.
 
TREAT… Estero Newcomers Club as well as our sister organization Encore have the utmost responsibility to keep their members safe and have postponed luncheons and other shared events due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
 
TREAT… remain positive — there is a light at the end of the tunnel. We have done the hard work and have come out on the other side better than ever. We were not complacent and have identified the gaps that need to be filled for the 2021 ENC Board. Those results will be advertised on the website...congrats to all!
 
TREAT… share your talents, a life’s story or just something unique that has happened to you, so that it can be shared with the membership in the newsletter under SPOTLIGHT!
 
TRICK or TREAT… will there be any children dressed in costumes screaming those words when the doorbell rings? Unfortunately, I don’t think so!
