September 2022

Dear Friends,

September is a very busy month! It is almost “back to normal”. The NSC will be hosting our Housing Fair, an Open House and a Dinner Show featuring acapella groups from the University of Delaware. And then it will be October – time for another Fall Sale!

The program staff is doing a wonderful job providing a variety of enrichment opportunities. We are working with Delaware Humanities, Humana, and the Newark Historical Society to provide multiple classes and presentations. And, for the first time, we are offering a class on American Sign Language. Our program staff, Katie, Heather and Yojani, work very hard to coordinate community resources and individual presenters offering a wide array of subject matter. For those of you who made suggestions via the member survey, hopefully you are seeing some of your ideas come to life. The NSC has hosted a Housing Fair since 2014. As we age, we know that our ability to continue to live successfully in the community may depend upon taking a serious look at our home or possibly considering other options. Staying in good physical shape and remaining socially connected are very important. But much can be done to make our living environment as safe as possible. Join us at the Housing Fair on September 13th to learn about community resources that may help you to extend your independence.

The Fall Flea Market will be returning on October 27, 28 and 29th. Last year we were thrilled to have so many new volunteers. If you are familiar with the event, you know it takes a small army to pull it off. Our volunteers do an amazing job preparing for, setting up and staffing the event. Please consider helping this year. It is a great way to meet new people or a great opportunity to work with a group of friends. If you are not able to help during the event we are always looking for bakers to contribute to the bake sale table. It is one of our most popular booths and usually sells out by Friday afternoon. Please contact Yojani, our Volunteer Coordinator if you are interested. There will be a slight change to the Flea Market again this year. Because of the high cost of tent rental, we will be holding the book sale the week after the Flea Market. The Book sale will begin on November 1st and run through the Vendor Fair which will be on November 5th. We know we have many book lovers who really look forward to the event. We are excited about a busy fall!

Please look for the symbol next to programming with the focus of “Time to get your house in order!”

THE NSC DOES NOT SELL OR GIVE ITS MEMBERSHIP LIST.

INTRO TO AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE (ASL)

Thursdays, September 8th October 13th 11:15am-12:15pm Instructor: Karen Miller American Sign Language is a beautiful language. It is becoming more and more popular. Why should you learn ASL? Learning a second language stimulates your brain. You can communicate underwater, chat at a movie or the library, talk through a closed window, communicate easily in noisy place without shouting, "yell" to the other end of the room. It is the most accessible language for deaf and hard of hearing people. Communicate with people with one or more disabilities, degenerative diseases, autism, speech impairment. You surely have your own good reasons for learning about ASL whether it be to satisfy your curiosity, explore a unique language, meet new people. There may be many reasons to get started but you will find that there are even more reasons to stick with it. Cost: $5 members $15 non-members. Registration Required.
