As the pandemic continued, and vaccinations were just beginning, we opted for another Zoom General Meeting. This month was a fun-filled Stuff Your Purse Scavenger Hunt. The members filled their purses with anything that they could think of. One of our VPs, Donna Nordell, called the items from a cozy place in Florida! What a great evening.

This month we put Zoom to work for us and we played Bingo. Our members downloaded a PDF of a bingo card and numbers. They then created their own cards. Kathleen Wolfe, our president, called the numbers. There were prizes awarded to the winners...the members could have them mailed or picked them up.

One of our members, Kelly Gauthier, found a trivia game called, "Funny You Should Ask", and she ran the Zoom meeting from her place of quarantine in Barrie, ON, Canada (there to visit her family). The members discovered how much they really didn't know LOL!

Our first attempt at a Zoom meeting...everyone was encouraged to wear an Ugly Christmas Sweater (or earrings, tiaras etc). We contacted members who had moved away from the York area and asked them to join us for the evening. It was a wonderful way for our members to see faces that they hadn't seen in many months. What a great start to the Holiday Season--we were all missing our Annual Holiday Party.

Taking advantage of a warm October Saturday, the group met up at Springettsbury Park for a rousing game of Cornhole. What a great way to get everyone together and get that competitive spirit flowing.

The members were encouraged to come to Springettsbury Park for an evening of chit-chat. It had been a long time since our members had seen one another so there was a lot to catch up on. The Board said that they would continue to hold outdoor "Pop-UP" meetings until the weather became to cold to do so.

We were supposed to gather at Hoss's Steak House for our Annual Bingo evening, but the pandemic had something else in mind so the event was the first meeting, of many, to be cancelled in 2020.

We were met at Hoss's Steak House for a talk about our health and fitness by a local fitness instructor. The ladies were given tips on how to live their best, and healthiest, lives.

This annual meeing, White Elephant Gift Exchange, is a favorite of our membership. Each member is encouraged to rummage through their house for an item (or perhaps an unwanted gift), wrap it up and bring it to the meeting. They then are given the opportunity to pick a gift from the table. If the gift is a good one the next member may "steal" the gift or pick a new one from the table. The evening is the most entertaining of all meetings!

What a wonderful beginning to the Holiday Season with the New Friends' Holiday Dinner Party. Each December the members gather to share a meal, often catered, exchange a small gift and sing a few seasonal songs. It is an evening that we all look forward to.

This month we had an officer, from the Springettsbury Police Department, come in to discuss ways to make our home safe, the newest computer/phone scams and safety issues to keep in mind during the Holiday Season.

After a summer full of fun and frolic it was time to bring in a guest speaker to help us sort out those stuffed-to-the-brim closets and start to get our homes in tip-top shape for the holidays.

It was time to start a new New Friends' year and what a wonderful evening it was. The membership was encouraged to come to the meeting wearing a t-shirt with a logo or memory that was very special to them. Each member was given the opportunity to chat about this shirt giving us all a special insight to each woman. A little bit of trivia that was unique to each person attending.
