PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
September, 2017

Greetings Friends, Sometimes I wonder if I still have the capacity to be really surprised. It’s tempting to think, because I’ve been around a long time, that I have a handle on human nature. But, this summer, I was most pleasantly surprised! Our Planning Committee, in a meeting in late May, started tossing around the idea of getting people together during the summer. What could that look like? Would anyone really want to venture out in the 100++ heat? Well, we decided to risk it and offer a no host luncheon in July and see what happens. You may know what happened. We had an overwhelming response and about 40 people responded and we could accommodate only 30 at Tommy Bahama’s. So, we offered a second luncheon at PizzaVino’s and again were able to accommodate 35 people. At both luncheons folks were happy to get together and the conversations were very lively. We saw how much our members value the continuity of being together, even if it’s just a simple lunch. Stay tuned for activities next summer!

And now welcome to the 2017-18 Brandeis Season. Click here: http://blogs.brandeis.edu/bncdesert/ There are terrific new Special Events, and we are meeting the demand for Study Groups by offering new movie and book groups, and yet another new offering of our popular Family Dynamics group. There’s a new men’s group hosted by Bob Starr to round out the menu of study groups. This season there will be changes to the way we communicate with our membership. The bulletin will now be published monthly, in our ongoing effort to keep you informed and up to date. In addition, our website has been enhanced and all the bulletin information and more will be readily available at blogs.brandeis.edu/bncdesert. One more thing, check out the event flyers as they come to you in the bulletins. Our gal in Publicity,        Judy Columbus, has done a remarkable job creating artistic and very beautiful flyers. They are best viewed on your computer rather than your phone. Please keep in touch with me as you think of ways we can help improve our programming to meet your needs. I look forward to seeing you at one of our wonderful events…


MARCIA PLUMLEIGH, PRESIDENT – 760-360-1084 – mjplum@verizon.net
