October - Cooler Temps at Last!
 
Many of us are transplanted from up North-whether from the Midwest or Northeast.  The weather down here was a big draw for me but I do miss one season in particular, Autumn.  The majestic colors of the fall foliage are like an ever changing painting. And the very slight chill in the air led me to wear my favorite sweaters but I did not like that Winter was up next.  Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall -now I have a selection of favorite flip flops with no regrets.
 
It’s a welcome change that the Florida weather will start to cool down soon. Estero Newcomers Club will continue with in person OUTDOOR events.  So even though we cannot see the beautiful colors of the leaves changing and crisp air down here, temperatures are starting to drop a bit. It is a great time to get out and about with fellow members.  Whether in person or virtually-there is always the opportunity to make some new friends at one of our upcoming events below.
 
“We don’t meet people by accident. We are meant to cross paths with them for a reason.”
 
Last month’s return of our popular Luncheon Meet & Greet was a success.  Join in the fun this time on Tuesday, October 12th on the outdoor patio of Bonita Brunch in Bonita Springs.  If you like starting your day with a nice breakfast and great conversation then connect with fellow ENC Members as well as our sister club Encore at our next Breakfast Club with outdoor seating on Wednesday, October 6th at Downtown Coffee & Wine Company in Bonita Springs.  Get to know both ENC and Encore Members at our next Woman to Woman on the outdoor patio of Mellow Mushroom in University Village on Wednesday, October 13th.  Happy Hour is returning on Wednesday, October 27th outside at Divieto at Coconut Point.

And as a BIG reminder, if you like to help out, pitch in or take charge then our Club needs YOU to volunteer for one of our 2022 Executive Board positions.  President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary are all crucial roles to keep our Club going.  None of us wants to see ENC STOP!
