TTN-LI – Who We Are




“Our geography is huge, and so is our future”

For 10 years the Long Island Chapter of The Transition Network has consistently offered new and varied programs to our members.

TTN/LI provides the opportunity for women to:
• Connect with women
• Join others to explore common interests
• Explore new ideas with peers
• Support one another during the challenges of transitions
• Develop friendships and support systems
• Participate in informative and social monthly programs
• Participate in special interest groups
 

Check out our open special interest groups by clicking on the  link in the left-hand column     
of this page. Peer groups are forming continually. 
Contact Carol Levatano for information and ideas at Cidermash@me.com


"STOP! In the Name of Love," "Leader of the Pack," "Runaround Sue," "The Stroll," and "Let's Twist Again "...
these are just a few of the familiar songs that the 85 TTN/LI women danced and sang to at the Omni Diner.  Spurred on by the retro atmosphere of a 50's diner, and two enthusiastic DJ's, for a few hours, we re-lived the music and exuberance of our youth.  Some of us even dressed the part -- pony tails, poodle skirts, scarves, boyfriend jeans, along with bobby sox and sneakers, were in evidence.  We sat at tables named for some of our former music idols.  We sipped egg creams, and dined on burgers, chicken fingers, and mac 'n' cheese, finishing off the night with ice cream sundaes and all the "fixins."
The "NAME THAT TUNE" contest was won by the very competitive Shirelles, who managed to name title, artist, and year recorded of an astounding number of songs.  Possibly the funniest part of the evening was the karaoke contest, where each table was given a song, a lyrics, and called up in turn to perform (Who knew we had such hidden talent?) By the end of the night, we all agreed that we had danced, sung, and laughed as much as we ever had at a TTN event (worth it, even if we had difficulty moving the next morning).

Kudos to Program Committee Chairs, Joan Ayoub and Claudia Cohen, and to their dedicated and hard-working committee for planning a terrific event!

Message From The Long Island Chairperson
Hello, Friends and Colleagues on the Board of Directors......I am so excited to share some wonderful news with you ! As you may know, hunger on Long Island is at an all time high, partially because of the downturn in the economy, lack of enough new job creation, as well as reductions in the food stamp program. Our Chapter works with Long Island Harvest, which is one of the two largest agencies out here trying to feed the hungry. Read more...
