I am happy to report that Marge White is recovering well from her fractured pelvis. She anticipates being at the Health Center at Stonebridge until approximately October 22.  Her phone number is the same as her home number, and I know she loves hearing from her friends in the College Club.

The College Club will only have one benefit this year, our Spring Bridge Luncheon.  We have had to buy a sound system and we have to pay to have the chairs and tables at our meetings “set up and taken down”.  Please consider a gift to our scholarship efforts so that we can continue to reward our deserving and hard-working young women.

GENERAL MEETING:                                                      
It is a pleasure this month to provide something different to go with the holiday season. Jon Hauge, the owner and manager of an interesting store, Savory Spice Shop, will talk about the various types and flavors of spices as well as some history and other  uses of them.  There will be samples to smell (or taste, if you like) of all of the spices he will talk about.  It is nice to learn about novel services in our town as we explore subjects that too often we take for granted. Friends who have heard Jon talk tell us that we will learn a lot as we enjoy this presentation.  When asked for information, our speaker replied:
From my earliest memories I have always loved to cook – and eat.  In high school I had planned on attending the Culinary Institute (and was admitted) but decided, after my education was finished, to go into the corporate world. My passion for food and flavors remained with me, and twelve years ago I told my wife I would like to have a spice  shop.  Four years ago I had the opportunity to open the shop in Princeton.”

We meet at All Saints Episcopal Church just off Terhune Road at 1:00 p.m. Monday, November 17, 2014.  Guests are welcome.  Light refreshments and fellowship follow the presentation.

On Wednesday, November 12, there will be a trip to Thomas Edison Center, 37 Christie Street, Edison NJ. Our private tour begins at 10 a.m., and with car-pooling we must be on time. Lunch afterward will be at LouCas, 9 Lincoln Highway, Edison.  You can sign up beforehand at the general meeting because reservations are necessary.  Directions will be given.  Call Nora Ananos for more information.
December’s trip will be to Radio City Music Hall’s Christmas Spectacular.

BOARD MEETING:                                        
Our November 4, 2014 meeting will take place at Windrows, Windrow Drive, beginning at 9:30 a.m. sharp to allow time for a picture of the entire board. Please call Kathy Hutchins if you cannot be there.

We shall have Nancy Lifland to thank for setting up a new Directory for 2014 – 2015. She will have one copy prepared for each member of the College Club.  However, if you lose your copy this year, you will be assessed $1.25 plus $5.00 for the Scholarship Fund.  Nancy has been able to produce the style which is easy to use and to refer to, and we appreciate her efforts.

Chow-Soon Chuang has decided to donate as many copies of her late husband’s two books as WCCP members are willing to purchase, to benefit the WCCP Scholarship Fund .I-Hsiung Ju’s Landscape Paintings Book III just came off the press and is selling on for $29.95 plus shipping. This book will be available at our next monthly meeting for $30 and the full amount is going to the Scholarship Fund.  His previous book, published in 1996, will also be available for $40, the full amount going to the Scholarship Fund.  Cash or checks are accepted, noting that it is for Prof. Ju’s book(s) for the Fund.
This is a very generous offer by this family and you will receive a lovely book by contributing to the Scholarship Fund.
