The month of October provides a cooler climate to enjoy the outdoors in our city and the surrounding area. There is a rich Germanic culture in this part of Texas. With that comes numerous Oktoberfest’s to take part in. It is also National Pizza and Popcorn month. After indulging in all that delicious food and drink, in honor of National Cholesterol Month, get your Cholesterol checked!
In October, Newcomers of San Antonio highlights our Community Involvement. It is wonderful that so many want to give of their time, talents and treasure to our new city. Our new Charity selected is “Soldier’s Angels”. It is
a national charity providing aid and comfort to the men and women of all the armed forces, their families and growing veteran population. At our October Luncheon, we will have Heather Krauss, Texas Service Area Manager, as our guest speaker to share more about this wonderful organization. Many of you have asked for more “hands on
“opportunities, and this charity will provide that. It is fitting that we assist this charity because recently San Antonio has been designated as “Military City USA”
Also “Mobile Loaves and Fishes” continues to need our help once a month (3rd Wednesday each
month. See newsletter for details) to pack and distribute lunches downtown to the homeless. Contact Sue D. at
Cindy S. if you are able to donate any of the following: toiletries, men’s underwear and t-shirts, socks, backpacks and used sneakers.
Thank you for your generosity and willingness to contribute to the well-being of those in need.
– President Newcomers of San Antonio
