We do not have a general meeting scheduled for December.

Trinity Presbyterian Church, 1416 Bolton Street, Winston Salem 27103
(just off Silas Creek Parkway via the Bolton Street exit)
General Meetings are a time to welcome visitors, hear guest speakers, and discuss club business. Women who are new or established residents of Greater Winston Salem are invited to join. Visitors are welcome to attend two meetings or activities before joining and paying dues. For more information, contact our
Membership Manager, Pat Titus at 336-771-4422.
Annual dues are $35 – renew each September (depending on the month, dues may be prorated)
Our Bad Weather Policy:
In the event of bad weather, our strategy is to follow the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School policy. If school is cancelled, then our meeting is cancelled. If school is on a two-hour delay, we will meet at the regular time.
December Holiday Social:
Our December party for members of Newcomers & Neighbors of Greater Winston Salem will be
Friday, December 8, 2017. The festivities will begin at 6:00 p.m. at Millhaven Landing Clubhouse,
3491 Waterwheel Circle, Winston Salem 27103. Members wishing to attend should sign up on the form which
the president will pass around at the general meeting November 28, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Guests are welcome if we have their name and payment.
The cost to attend the social is $5.00 per person and your payment by December 1 will guarantee your place at the party. You can pay with cash, or check made payable to Newcomers and Neighbors and delivered to the treasurer Kathy Pietroski.
To keep expenses down we ask that you bring a 'potluck' dish —i.e. an appetizer, side, salad, main, or dessert.
By indicating your contribution on the sign-up sheet, we hope to have a wide selection of delicious food with something for everyone. There will be tea, coffee, and, soft drinks available, but please feel free to bring your own adult beverage.
There is parking available close to the clubhouse; however, we recommend carpooling since space may be limited. Please do not park on the grass.
Annual Holiday Giving: Again this year at the Holiday Social we will collect $10 gift cards from our members,
to contribute to the Salvation Army as gifts for the teenagers in their program. If you would like to provide one
or more gift cards, but are unable to attend the Social, cards can be brought to the November general meeting -or- given to President Jean Isaac, or Pam Bloom by December 8. Suggested sources for gift cards are Walmart, Target, Walgreens, and Kohl's. We look forward to seeing you December 8, giving us all the opportunity to welcome and get to know new members, mingle, make friends and enjoy the party in the festive atmosphere
of the Millhaven Landing Clubhouse.
Special thanks to those who have or will be helping the social coordinators make this event possible.
