Support TTN

TTN-NYC’s Spring Festival Saturday, April 27

May 13, 2019

By MaryLou Floyd



Our purpose was to celebrate the women of TTN who, through their leadership and involvement, make this volunteer-run organization work so beautifully and meaningfully. These are women with purpose and leadership skills, who are interested in lifelong learning, supporting one another and living life to its fullest.  Our hats off to you!

Equally important, we wanted to celebrate TTN and its unique value for women 50 plus. We wanted members to rediscover the myriad opportunities of TTN and we wanted to share our enthusiasms with newcomers.  


Music, entertainment, wine and hors d’oeuvres –- plus an array of opportunities. There were groups focused on travel, dance, culture, cultural explorations of NYC, starting a business, civic action, volunteering, readers’ clubs and groups that support short term medical needs.   A silent auction and demonstrations - from beauty makeovers to packing for bucket-list travel – took place throughout the day. We also offer a special shout out to our guest speaker, Ruth Messinger, whose inspiriting talk went to the heart of the TTN experience.  And, of course, our gratitude goes to our eight sponsors, for their generous donations and ongoing support of our community of women. 

More than 350 TTN-NYC members and guests came to the Spring Festival!
