Coffee at the Norwich Inn 09/10/12 Monday 10-11am The summer provides us with an opportunity to be proud of all the great things that the NWC does to enhance life in Norwich. The NWC garden was more beautiful than ever this summer. Mary Ann Holbrook and her gardening gurus were often seen weeding, thinning, planting and otherwise keeping the garden in glorious bloom. Please remember to thank her when you see her. Did you notice the plantings around our town sign? The NWC provided funds and were involved in choosing the plants. The summer F riday night concerts on the green, arranged by Rita Lajoie, provided wonderful free entertainment for so many Norwich folks. And of course, I hope you noticed how effectively the new bandstand is being used. With summer just about behind us, lots of planning has already taken place to make this another banner NWC year. We hope to continue increasing our visibility and adding new members to our club. Our Monday morning monthly coffee and conversations hours at the Norwich Inn will be starting up again on September 10. These informal, drop-in events provide an opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones. If you have a friend or neighbor who you think would be interested in learning more about the NWC, why don’t you invite them to join you at the Inn next Monday morning? How many of you were at the Spring Gala last March? Were you as frustrated as I with the inability of the sound system to let people be heard over the din of the crowd? Thanks to the NWC, and all the people who supported the Gala, that won’t happen again. With community project funds, the capacity of the sound system in Tracy Hall has been upgraded, and a new sound system for the multi-purpose room has been purchased. This will be available for all Tracy Hall functions. Please check our website, www.norwichwomensclub.org. It is constantly being updated with new events, as well as fun pictures. I hope that you will all take advantage of our programs as well as the opportunities for volunteering. Being a part of the NWC will enrich your life as well as enhance our town. I hope to see all of you soon.

Priscilla Vincent, Nearly New Sale preconsignment coordinator extraordinaire, is ready to “pass the baton” after 15 years of service to the NNS following the fall sale. This is the perfect opportunity for someone to become more involved on the administrative level. Learn the ropes by spending a bit of time with Priscilla this fall to understand the process so you will be ready to coordinate preconsignment for the Spring 2013 Sale with support from Priscilla. The pre-consignment coordinator has a team of four packet disseminators scattered about the Upper Valley to assist with getting packets to pre -consignors. To learn what is involved, please call Priscilla at 802-649-1807.
NNS reality: no pre-consignment coordinator = no pre-consignment
