President’s Message
In thinking about the January breakfast, I must admit that one of the parts that I liked the best was seeing what everyone was wearing.  I am a shallow person.  Three outstanding pieces of jewelry…Gloria Huber’s wonderful green necklace from Peru; Mary Lincoln’s (no surprise here!) blue necklace bought at a thrift shop and Connie Loukatos’ wonderful deep red necklace and earrings.    And Carol Stokes’ green Irish sweater and Bonnie Larson’s blue jacket and scarf and Fay Austin’s peachy pink blazer.  But I digress.  I do want to thank Bonnie Larson, Helen Ju, and Connie Loukatos for coming early to help with flowers, name tags and just about everything else.

We have a lot to look forward to in February.  David Mulford will be with us once again, talking this time about Theodore Roosevelt.  This program is a wonderful time to invite the men in your life to a College Club program.  So, do it.

The Firestone Library regrets to inform the Club that they have had “a policy change and cannot conduct tours for outside groups”.    Do not, however, despair.  We will be going to The College of New Jersey art gallery for a tour of Caroline Kent: A Form Walks Toward You.  There is more information about this exhibit under “Trips”.  And keep the April 20th benefit in mind.  We need your presence and support.  We are excited about our new venue and what it offers.  Please bring guests and support our scholarship fund raising effort.  There are such wonderful young women out there who need all the support we can give them.  So, look in your mailboxes for more information and forms as April approaches.

While I am at it, the board needs help with membership.  How about helping out with keeping track of members, especially new ones, following up with guests, and conquering the strings to the name tags? Don’t be shy.

GENERAL MEETING
Monday,  Feb. 17, 2020 at 1:00 PM      All Saint’s Church
Title:  Theodore Roosevelt–ONE OF A KIND.

Our 26th president, Theodore Roosevelt served from 1901-1909.  A man of boundless energy and mammoth interests; he accomplished much.  Yet, as one scholar observed, “Theodore Roosevelt is illusive. Just when you think you know him, you don’t.”  This talk attempts to address the puzzle of TR.

Dr. David Mulford is a retired Presbyterian minister.  With degrees from Colgate University, Princeton Theological Seminary and Drew University, he has served churches in New York, New Jersey and Florida.  Now living in Skillman, New Jersey, he continues a life-long interest in the America presidency.

TRIPS 
We will visit The College of New Jersey Art Gallery in February for a guided tour of Caroline Kent: “A Form Walks Toward You In The Dark.” The show will feature works on large unstretched canvases, mid-sized canvases, and three-dimensional wall-mounted sculptures that engage with unexpected gallery spaces like corners and doorframes.  Our last tour of this gallery was exceptional.  We met and visited with the artist and as well as other TCNJ art students.  Margaret Pezalla-Granlund, director of the gallery, has arranged for an art history student interning with the gallery this semester to give us our tour.  A date in February is being arranged now.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Kathy at widowh@hotmail.com or 609-430-1565.

HOSPITALITY
Here it is February and I am just now acknowledging the wonderful members who contributed food and labor to make the December meeting a success. Kudos to Nancy Mulford, Dora Bowers, Janet Young, Janet Reiche, Elaine Rafferty, and Connie Loukatos who insisted on washing every plate, cup and flatware presented to her.

Let’s not forget Kathy’s fresh fruit salad and Gay’s centerpieces at each and every meeting.  Many thanks.
