The Welcome Mat - Signal Mountain Newcomers March Newsletter

Newcomers Newsletter Editor

Message from the Co-Directors

I hope we have all found renewed energy through the wonderful yoga techniques Sue Reynolds showed us at last month’s meeting. Now we can channel all that energy into planning our Spring Auction.

The Fundraising Committee has been utilizing their creative geniuses to make this year’s Spring Auction an exciting one. But it is the unique talents each and every Newcomer member has to offer that will help to make this year’s auction a huge success. The Fundraising Committee will be contacting you shortly to tap into your talent.

Meanwhile, join us on Tuesday, March 5 at 10 a.m. as Ward Petty from A.G. Edwards talks to us on what women should know about their finances. The more we know, the more prepared we will be!

Looking forward to seeing you on March 5!

Vicki Love, and Dominique Gable,

The Next Newcomers Meeting is March 5, 10:00 a.m. at the Bachman Community Center! Board Members meet at 9:15.

Babysitting is available during our monthly meetings/ luncheon from 9:30a.m. – 1:30 p.m. for $3/hr for one child and $1/hr for each additional child (cash only please). Signal Mountain Baptist Church graciously allows us to use their nursery but requires that all children be able to walk (infants and pre-walkers are welcome at the meeting). Make reservations by calling Arlina Hensley () by the Friday before the meeting. To ensure that the nursery is adequately staffed for your child’s safety, reservations are required. You may call later to see if openings are still available. Remember to bring drinks, snacks, and lunch for your child if you will be attending the luncheon.
