Saline Newcomers
Message from Our President, Betty Hughes
Cooler days and crisp
nights are here! Fall is a
great time to reflect on
the beauty of nature. As
we take time to select a
pumpkin or drink a cup of
cider, it is a good time to
think about giving back to
those in need.
Saline Newcomers is not
just a wonderful social
club, we can also enhance
our community service
efforts. With that in
mind, the Board has
elected to broaden the
scope of the Angel Net-­
work (spread our wings).
Liz Hartley, our coordina-­
tor, would like to hear
about anyone within our
organization that needs a
helping hand. Later in
this newsletter, she ex-­
plains our expanded ser-­
vice outreach plan.
Remember, October 1st is
the deadline for renewing
your membership. In or-­
der to participate in the
special interest group ac-­
tivities and to have your
information included in
the Directory, your dues
must be paid ($15 is quite
a bargain!).
Thanks go to Melissa
Solomon for hosting our
first coffee of the year and
to Ellen Near for inviting
us to her home for Eve-­
ning Cocktails. Mark
your calendars for our
Annual Holiday Party
and Ornament Exchange
on December 11th. Cheri
Scriven has graciously
volunteered to host this
festive evening.
October 25th is Ladies
Night Out at Ruby Tues-­
days. Come and join us

heart and a smile on your

As the old saying goes, "A

especially true for our
Saline Newcomer friends
in need.

clude support for those members going
through a difficult time. If you know of
a member who could use emotional
support or perhaps in need of transpor-­
tation to and from a medical appoint-­
ment, please contact Liz Hartley at

We had a great turnout for our first Chick Flick for this year in August when we saw "Hope Springs." Some of us went to the Carlyle afterwards for refreshments and discussion. The consensus was that we all liked the movie. A smaller group traveled to the State Theater in September to see "Arbitrage." W e really liked it, and enjoyed the experience of the State Theater also. Watch for notice of the October pick later this month. W e will meet on October 30th (last Tuesday of the month). Suggestions for films are always welcome! Contact Judy Neeb, 944-­3733. Pilates Mat Exercising Welcome Wagon Diane Daniels is offering Pilates mat train-­
