Summer Break

We New Friends might be especially attuned to 'Best Friends Day' (June 8), 'Smile Power Day (June 15) and 'Hug Holiday' (June 29). Regardless, even though we are taking a break from monthly meetings this summer, we sure hope to see some of you at our special sub-group get togethers. We can make any of those groups fit under the special observance of 'Monkey Around Day' (June 14) on any date we choose, can't we?

Have a great summer and keep an eye out for news about our End of Summer Picnic in August.

Stay safe and have a terrific summer!

In friendship,
Your Activities Director

Holiday Message from the New Friend's Vice President

posted Dec 6, 2017, 3:52 AM by New Friends York County

What a wonderful start to our New Friends year with fantastic meeting attendance and growing membership! Our thanks to James McClure for such an interesting presentation for our November meeting!

Our December monthly meeting will be moved up a week to December 14th for our annual New Friends Holiday Dinner! I'm looking forward to celebrating the Holiday Season with all of you as we enjoy a delicious dinner buffet catered by Food for Thought Catering. (I just got a peek at the menu and I can hardly wait!) After dinner, we'll have some fun with a gift exchange and some caroling! Please bring a $15 wrapped gift in order to participate in the gift exchange. Gift exchange is optional.

I'm hoping that you're able to take some time to relax with those closest to you amid the always busy Holiday events and activities, the shopping and wrapping, the hustle and bustle. Wishing each of you all of the best as we wrap up 2017 and kick off 2018!

In friendship,
Your NFYC Vice President

November Board Message

posted Oct 27, 2017, 8:25 AM by New Friends York County

It is hard to believe that we are heading into November because the weather has been so unseasonably warm.  Regardless of the forecast, it is time to start thinking about the holiday season—being thankful and celebrating our good fortune.
 
One of the things that I am thankful for are the friendships I have made through my membership in New Friends.  Although and perhaps because we are a  varied group of women I always find that I have a good time when I come to a monthly meeting or attend another New Friends event.
 
Please join the fun this month at our regular membership meeting which will feature the return of James McClure from the York Daily Record.  Remember how we enjoyed his talk on the Underground Railroad last year?  He plans to fascinate us in November talking about the infamous Hex murder.  Please join us at Perkins to hear about this intriguing event in York County history.

Hope to see you there!

In friendship,
The New Friends of York County Membership Chair

Our October meeting will be held at the Leg-Up Farmers Market. We will have a guest speaker, Julie Stefanski, a registered dietitian. Julie will be speaking about "Nutrition for the Maturing Woman"—we look forward to learning lots of information! Light refreshments will be served.

Our year is quickly heading into the holiday season. We need to take some time to enjoy the fall colors, cooler weather but most importantly, our friendships both old and new.

Hope you will join us! Prospective members are always welcome and you don't need to join as a member to check out if the group is for you.

In friendship,
The New Friends of York County Board
