FROM THE PRESIDENT
Our June speaker Doug Simmons, president of Enstrom’s, was informative and we all enjoyed the toffee. July speaker is Jeanette Durham, a dietitian and health coach from Community Hospital. Guarantee you will pick up some useful health tips.
Speaking of good food, we will start taking checks and reservations for the Labor Day BBQ. For under $20 per person buffet includes BBQ chicken, sausage and pork; beans; potato salad and fruit salad; iced tea; lemonade and brownies. Smoker will be on site, so meats will be tasty and hot.
Don’t forget the Fourth of July parade downtown. We had a great time last year. Wear a funny hat. We’ll provide banners, signs and flags. Details to follow in e-mail.
Keep enjoying the happy hours, tours and all the activities. See you all at the July 11 meeting. Hope this newsletter finds you healthy and happy.
Les Slowik, president
After living in the Grand Valley as long as many of us Newcomers have, it’s easy to forget just how great living here can be. And then you come across a recently arrived [lower case n]ewcomer and spend some time with them. Suddenly the area’s attractions and charms are again fresh to your eyes.
Bob and I welcomed neighbors Bill and Ilene Roberts just over a month ago. Their enthusiasm for their new home is infectious. Even before their furniture arrived they were off to explore the town and the countryside. I doubt they’ll slow down for a long time.
Let’s all stay newcomers at heart!
