As I reach the end of my term as President of the WCCP for the 2017-2018 year, I am filled with a lot of mixed emotions. When I started my Presidency in September 2017, I had no idea my whole life would change in a few short months. I embraced the job with enthusiasm and lots of ideas I wanted to accomplish this year. I really have loved my tenure and involvement with my Board members, who are such super hard-working women and have made this experience such a pleasure. I have learned so much from them and am very confident that with Kathy Hutchins as your President again the club will continue to prosper and grow.
I am looking forward to seeing the great turnout for our Bridge/Card/Game Fundraiser this coming Monday, April 23. I know it will be very successful with our enthusiastic membership backing the Fundraiser! Thank you all for supporting this fun and profitable event and one of the highlights of our year.
I feel it is so very important to be active in every aspect of life and to help give of yourself, as the more you give, the more you will reap in return benefits!
Lastly, I want to say…..
Happy Trails to you until we meet
Happy Trails to you, keep smiling
Much good health and happiness are wished for each one of you and your loved ones, too…..
Warmly in Friendship,
THE WOMEN’S COLLEGE CLUB OF PRINCETON
ANNUAL MEETING AND LUNCHEON
MONDAY, MAY 21, 2018
NASSAU ROOM, PRINCETON WINDROWS
This important annual meeting will include a delicious lunch at Windrows, installation of the Board for 2018 – 2019, and a delightful program with Dr. Karen Zumbrunn, who will entertain us on the piano with “A Tribute to Women Composers”.
You will find a registration form to send with your check at the end of this Newsletter.
“TRIBUTE TO WOMEN COMPOSERS AND LYRICISTS OF THE POPULAR SONG”
Presenter: DR. KAREN FANTA ZUMBRUNN
The Great American Songbook is a term that generally refers to those melodies and lyrics from the ‘20s through the ‘60s – pop tunes, stage musicals, movies which have been handed down from generation to generation and have stood the test of time. It is a little-known fact that many of our enduring music classics of Tin Pan Alley were written by WOMEN.
Join Dr. Karen Zumbrunn as she presents the background on some of the amazing women who broke into what was very much a man’s world. Selections will include “Fine and Dandy”, “Don’t Blame Me”, “Just in Time”, and many others. This entertaining and informative program will include Dr. Z at the piano with voice, and the audience will participate as well.
Dr. Zumbrunn has degrees from Ohio State (B.A. and M.A.), Harvard (Ed.M) and a PhD from The University of California at Berkeley. She studied at The Sorbonne and L’Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris, where she performed at the “Blue Note” in Paris and recorded with the International Stars of Jazz in Rome. Dr. Zumbrunn performs widely in the area.
The ANNUAL SCHOLARSHIP TEA will be held on TUESDAY, MAY 15 at the home of Ginny Mason, 220 Ridgeview Road, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Every year Ginny has generously hosted this event to which the entire membership is invited to meet the young women who have been awarded scholarships.
The NEW MEMBERS TEA will be held on WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20 at the home of Josephine Ondetti, 79 Hemlock Circle, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Our entire membership is invited to meet our newest members.
Josephine has also been the hostess for this event each year.
The May 1 board meeting will be hosted by Beverly Crane Dubee at Windrows. Please call Beverly if you will not be joining us. Meetings begin promptly at 10:00 a.m.; arrive a little early for welcoming friends and for coffee.
The June 12 joint board meeting, including the present and incoming boards, will be hosted by Alyce Conlon, 26 Beechcroft Drive, East Windsor; a luncheon prepared by Florence Begun will be served following the meeting. Please call Alyce if you cannot join us.
We are reversing our usual schedule by sharing poetry with each other at the June 1 meeting, when Mary Laity will host us at her apartment at Windrows. The meeting will begin at 1:00 p.m. Please call Mary so she will be expecting you.
Looking forward: The book for June will be Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri.
Kathy Hutchins has taken on the task of arranging trips to interesting venues in the area. She will send information when a trip has been scheduled so you can put the day on your calendar.
The March 26 meeting proved once again to be a fun afternoon. A “surprise” birthday cake, minus candles, was provided by Kathy for Lorraine’s birthday on March 27. Martha Matthews demonstrated her acting skills, taking the role of lit candles and everyone burst into song. Our core membership of six was present with four guests. Janet Young offered to host the next meeting on May 7, at 1:30 p.m., at her home in Princeton. Please contact her by phone or email if you plan to attend. Why not join us with whatever craft project you want to share. The afternoon should be fun!!!
LUNCHING OUT GROUP:
Bonnie Larson has been arranging monthly get-togethers at various restaurants in the area. To join the group, call or email her.
Bonnie Larson is also our Sunshine Lady, and she will send a card representing our membership to a member who has been ill or who has lost a family member. Call her if you know of such a situation.
