Letter from our President

Well, it has certainly been a cold winter so far.  Having spent 25 years in Asia before moving to Greensboro, the cold temperatures of late December/early January certainly came as a shock to me (and the dog, who was born and bred in Hong Kong!). I do hope you are all keeping warm during this cold season.  Hopefully Spring will be upon us before we know it.

Our January Meet and Mingle at Earth Fare was a great success.  Many of our members, and some prospective ones too, enjoyed a brief talk from the manager, Rich, and then took advantage of the healthy snacks on offer.  Thank You Gloria Monahan for organising.  At our January General Meeting on January 25 we welcomed guest speaker Kathie Amato, co-chair of the Greensboro Symphony Guild.  She gave a fascinating talk about the Guild and about the impact of the arts on both the local economy and on enhancing education.

In February, our Meet and Mingle will be on Wednesday February 7 at 6pm at the Loaded Grape on Battleground for wine-tasting and hors d’oeuvres.  Our General Meeting this month will take place on February 22 at the Wyndham Garden Hotel.  This is our ‘Author Author’ meeting, to be followed by lunch for those that wish to stay on.  We have four local authors lined up to speak, ranging from a children’s author, to a travel writer to a novelist and an expert on Mexican History.  I am really looking forward to hearing the authors speak about themselves and their writing and I hope to see many of our members joining me for the occasion.

Interest Groups continue to attract many members and I would like to thank all those Interest Group leaders who help to keep these running smoothly behind the scenes.
