President's Message 

I am your new 2016-2017 President; and if we haven’t yet met, I’d like to introduce myself.  I am single; and, compared with many of you, a relatively new resident in the Valley – 2 ½ years.  When I retired from my Museum Curator/Educator position in Pasadena, CA, I searched for someplace both warm and affordable.  I’m so pleased to have found Phoenix.

Having made lifelong friends in a Newcomers group in Mexico City many years ago, I looked for a group here.  I volunteered immediately, serving on the Program Committee as an Arrangements person and then as VP of Programs.  I continue to make wonderful friends – one of the great pluses of the Club – as well as to take advantage of the myriad of offered activities.

Especially a propos in April, National Volunteer month, I want to thank Carolyn White, our past President, and her team, who have accomplished so much in the last year and set an example for us all.  Luckily, they promise to be available for guidance when we need them.

I also want to thank in advance my new Executive Board and Committee Members for their commitment.  As a volunteer organization, we rely on the generosity of our leaders who give both their time and expertise to make everything we do possible.  And there are always ways to help.  We can do so much more with your efforts, so please do not hesitate to contact us.

Our Meeting/Luncheon this month on the 28th seems particularly appropriate, as it features a panel discussion of the changing lifestyle of the recently or close-to-being retired generation – that’s many of us. 

I hope to see you there or at another Club activity soon.
