In Case You Missed These (Summer 2018) . . .

The Annual Cocktail Party – July 17

Too bad if you missed the Party!  This now Annual TTN tradition lived up to all the advertising leading up to it.  At the Ribbon Restaurant, it was very well attended and proved a joyful, inclusive, energy-filled and rollicking event!  There was superb food, plentiful wine and other beverages, and a surprise live performance by a terrific crooner, Charlie Romo, who featured great rock & roll and classic songs. Dancing, did I say Dancing? You bet. Additionally, we had good words from Barbara Alpern on finishing her term as Chapter Chair, and introduction of the new Co-Chairs, MaryLou Floyd and Phyllis Meissel. In short, a blast!  You don’t want to miss these Chapter-wide gatherings. . .


Private Art Exhibit with the Artists  -- July 28

This was indeed a special Members Only TTN offering, featuring a sculptor, a collagist, and a photographer. The artists, Molly Heron, Mallary Johnson, and Neil Marcello, provided a super opportunity to hear from the artists themselves about their work which offered a unique look into the reclaiming, cultivation and critical examination of color in the 21st Century. Interesting conversation, wine and cheese. A lovely summer afternoon!


Caring Collaborative Orientation – July 30

For Members only, this was another of the frequent Orientations to TTN’s Caring Collaborative. Close to 400 NYC Members belong to this unique group which provides in-person help for short term physical needs, help in going to and coming from -- and taking notes at -- doctors’ appointments, Member Information Exchange -- including referrals to specialists recommended by CCers, and information exchange about experience with physical ailments and conditions.  We heartily urge TTNers to join in this wonderful benefit. Do sign up for the next (very friendly) CC Orientation!


Pot Luck Indoor Picnic Dinner – August 1

This new Annual tradition (no rain, no bugs, etc.!) was another lively and welcoming TTN event. Held in Sandy Merrill’s home, it was a very popular special time.            
In addition to the terrific assortment of delicious appetizers, entrees and desserts all provided by Members, there was a fine selection of wine, sodas, etc. (Many recipes were exchanged after questions like, “What makes that egg salad so different and super?”, and so on!) It was particularly nice to have so many new Members there; for many of them, it was their first TTN event! And what a great welcome they got!   Yea!

City Riverscapes (TravelMates Rooftop Meet-up) - August 28

TravelMates hosted a wonderful rooftop meet-up open to all chapter members with wonderful views of NYC. The theme was City Riverscapes. Despite the hot weather, 30+ women enjoyed talking travel over cocktails, sharing tales of their trips to cities/locations with rivers, and congregating afterward at sunset to close our meeting chatting about new trips to take and also to take with each other!
