Preregistered March/April Luncheon Members and Guests:
Our April Luncheon venue has now closed their club, thus canceling our April Luncheon.​​​​​​ ​Members and their guests who paid for the March Luncheon will now be reimbursed in FULL via check. You should receive a check in the mail from our treasurer, Barbara DeNapoli. Please allow her sufficient time to process your refund check. If you have any questions in regard to your refund, feel free to contact Barbara by phone 908-247-0917 or email myqueen80@gmail.com.
 
Event Cancellations
The President and Executive Board are committed to working out a solution that is in the best interest of our members during this challenging time. You can check out this area to be apprised of the reinstatement of any scheduled events moving forward. We value your support and appreciate your understanding during these trying times. Please address any concerns to Deborah O'Prandy at deborahoprandy@gmail.com.
 
Safe Social Distance Contact
The Member Directory is one way to locate contact information to connect remotely with your newfound friends.
 
Member Feedback - Newsletter
Now that you may have extra time on your hands, take this opportunity to read the latest (and past) newsletter(s) posted on the website Newsletter page. Our April newsletter has two new features: New Member Welcome area and the Spotlight Series. Contact Brenda Njiwaji, njiwajib@msn.com with suggestions for a member that should be spotlighted.
 
Member Feedback - Website
Take the time to navigate the website. There is a wealth of information especially under the Member Activities and Member Resources menus. Notice that we now have a Photo Albums area. When you attend an event, take some photos and forward them to the event coordinator(s). Event Coordinators will soon be instructed on how to create album and download photos from their events. Feel free to give your feedback and suggestions to our website admin, Jayne Cohen, jaynejcohen@gmail.com or via the Contact Us page.
Website tip: text that is blue and underlined where the underlining disappears when you move the mouse or your finger over is a HOT LINK. This means if you click or tap it, it will take you to the page of interest.

APRIL
WOW! I cannot believe that the first quarter of my last year in Newcomer’s Club is almost over. I have seen the Club change over the years and believe it has been for the better. Membership was much lower and grew to almost 300 members last year. I am delighted to say that the transition from last year, a little rocky at first since so many of the Board (BOD) members graduated, has seen the few wrinkles ironed out and the Club is now functioning well. Next year ENC will also have several BOD members “graduating” or possibly stepping into other positions. So now is the time to learn what YOU can do to help the club continue to provide members with a wonderful environment to meet and make ‘forever’ friends. As you know, all of the Board Members and the Event Coordinators volunteer their time to ensure the activities that brought you to our club, continue to make ENC the best women’s club in Southwest Florida!
 
Many new clubs, meet-up groups, have recently sprung up in the surrounding communities. We hope that they have learned from us and provided an additional avenue for those who want to remain in contact with their new friends from Newcomers once they have graduated. However, ENC is the initial contact where these ladies find their ‘group’. Our club provides:
  • luncheons with interesting guest speakers at country clubs in Estero and surrounding communities.
  • ​​​​a wide variety of activities where members can make new special friends.
  • events open to male companions or guests.
  • group trips.
  • an opportunity to share talents to help ensure the smooth running of the club.
  • donations to local charities to support our communities. 
I do want to express that due to the recent health concerns regarding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) that you protect your new friends by following all the guidelines that have been provided by the CDC. If you are feeling under the weather, please stay home to protect yourself. It is much easier to fall victim to another malady when you are already feeling sick. If you are in top form, please practice the recommended sanitary policies.
 
To learn about Coronavirus, you can Google it to find a mountain of information. However, you should really go straight to the authority, the CDC. The following links provide the most current information.
