Whoa! Was that a summer or what!?! I hope everyone has survived the summer heat here in San
Antonio and looking forward to fall!
Newcomers has an exciting year ahead for us. Interest Groups will soon be back in full swing. Be
sure to check out all of these at our showcase at the September luncheon which will be held at the
beautiful Canyon Springs Golf Club on September 6th. Menu, directions, and reservations can be
found elsewhere in this newsletter. Most interest groups will have a table for you to sign up if you
may have forgot to check the box on the membership form along with a current list of
members. We are excited about two new groups…Bunco Buddies, for couples, and Visual Arts
Group for those of us who enjoy art. We are still looking for a leader or leaders for Lunch Ladies
and hope someone will volunteer soon as this was always such a fun day of lunch and shopping. If
you have an idea for a new group, we would love to hear from you!
The printed directory will also be available at the September luncheon. It includes all the
information on our 214 members, as well as Interest Group meeting dates and leaders, and names
and pictures of this year’s board. The best part that helps so many of us is the fact that the
directory lists neighborhoods to help with carpools! Many of us use this daily and I even keep it
in my car so I know the exact address when I’m going to a coffee or one of the other activities
Newcomers provides. Updates will be available electronically when the need arises.
I look forward to seeing you at the luncheons, coffees, and other activities. The heat will soon
abate, and we will forget all about the 100-degree days, water restrictions, and enjoy our great
friends and activities!
