Christmas is fast approaching with shopping, parties and decorating taking up most of our time. Be sure to check the calendar, as many Interest Groups are on hold over the holidays.
Please be generous in donating to our Soldier’s Angels Toy Drive. All children should be given “the Joy of experiencing a gift from Santa”! Many of us like to reflect on the year almost past. Newcomers of San Antonio is a vibrant organization, with a current membership of 233!
For those of you having your first San Antonio Christmas, you have given yourself the gift of Friendship by joining us in 2017. The organization has grown by leaps and bounds in
technology. Our website is our primary recruitment tool, thanks to Wilma K., our Webmaster. Most Interest Group Leaders have embraced the Outlook system to manage their email notifications. Our newsletter is delivered in a much smoother, less
troublesome process thanks to Jeanne S. in Communications. Kris W., Directory has
introduced the first Electronic Directory, plus additional supplements released as needed
throughout the year. I know it has not always been perfect but know every effort has been taken by your hard-working Board to make things right.
2018 promises to be an exciting year for our city. Celebrating 300 years is no small feat. Be on the lookout in the Newsletter for a section to help you “Discover and Celebrate SA 300”! A quick guide to events being offered by the city will be listed. This city loves a party! Check out this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7NfCpppvn8
On behalf of your Newcomers Board and myself, I want to wish y’all a Merry Christmas &
Happy New Year!
President Newcomers of San Antonio
