September - Keeping ENC Vital!
 
Our ENC Board has worked diligently to get our Club up and running again. We have taken more than 2 steps forward. But now unfortunately we need to take a step back by canceling INDOOR events for September. We will revisit this decision for October and future months at a later date. Our sister club Encore followed suit and canceled their indoor events as well, after ENC made our announcement. The impetus leading to this outcome is the skyrocketing number of Covid cases in our state with the quickly spreading Delta variant. This decision was not made lightly, as so many of us had been enjoying the “normalcy” by getting back to in-person indoor socializing. But it is of the utmost importance to keep good health and safety as a priority. In spite of these trying times, Estero Newcomers Club will not be stopped! Our fabulous, hard-working Event Coordinators will be featuring some of our popular events at OUTDOOR locations and even virtually! See details below!
 
Staying in touch with contacts is as important as getting them in the first place.

If you are an early riser, then meet-up with fellow ENC Members as well as friends from Encore too at our next Breakfast Club with outdoor seating on Wednesday, September 1st at Skillets in University Village. For those of you who enjoy working on your tan or relaxing in the shade under an umbrella, then mark your calendar for Beach Day at Barefoot Beach on September 10th. This is a fun way to get to know both ENC and Encore Members. And our popular, fun and casual Luncheon Meet & Greet is making its return on Tuesday, September 14th on the outdoor patio of Mellow Mushroom in University Village.
 
In lieu of our Monthly Luncheons, we are bringing back our Virtual Gathering. Our next one will be on Thursday, September 16th from 11:30 AM -12:30PM. You can register on-line to join us via ZOOM to meet and chat with fellow Members as well as hear from our Board about event updates for our Club. This is a great way to stay connected until our next outdoor activity! If you love a good movie, then sign up for Virtual Film Club. Watch the selected movie at your leisure and then participate in a lively discussion via ZOOM on Tuesday, September 21st.
 
Don’t forget to open and read our monthly Newsletter which is delivered right in your email. And visit our Website esteronewcomers.com for up-to-date information and new events that are added. On-line registration is required to participate in most of our upcoming activities.
 
Although we have pulled back on indoor activities, there are events happening with a variety of ways to make new friends as well as stay connected to old ones too!
 
As a friendly reminder, if you are a natural born leader, enjoy being at the helm or just the type who likes to pitch in and help, then we would love for you step into one of our 2022 Executive Board positions. President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary are all needed to keep our Club going. We hope one of these positions has your name on it as no one wants to see our great Club STOP!
 
Coming together is a beginning... Keeping together is progress. Working together is SUCCESS!
