CALLING WOMEN 50+ IN THE CENTRAL OHIO AREA

TTN is a national non-profit organization for women 50+ who are interested in connecting with other women as they enter this next stage of their lives.   Whether you are transitioning into retirement, making a life change, starting a new career, or just interested in socializing, TTN provides numerous opportunities to meet smart, diverse, fun-loving women in a variety of settings.

During this critical period of time as we struggle with corona virus impacts, we are at risk of becoming particularly isolated.  We are missing our activities and busy social calendars.  Please know that we are here for you!   There are many ways we can keep ourselves from feeling alone and confused.  Most of our Peer Groups and our Special Interest Groups are meeting virtually.  We have begun new forums for sharing and laughing together such as our coffee and cocktail hours.  Please look at our calendar and join us!!

CHAPTER NEWS

Central Ohio Chapter


Real Life Resilence
for Turbulent Times

These days, transitions are coming at us at breakneck speed. Not only have we had to shift gears into a more COVID-safe life but our assumptions about government, our way of life, and race in this country are also being challenged. Experts are quick to share their best resilience strategies. 

For our January 18 program, the Central Ohio Chapter is drawing on experts we can trust – our own members like you and also our guests– to contribute real-life wisdom during interactive breakout sessions where all of us will share challenges past and present and how we got through them. 

There’s no formal homework for this rich program, but we invite you to think through your own life challenges.

Before the meeting, if you can, watch an inspiring YouTube by researcher Lucy Hone (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWH8N-BvhAw) who tells us how she was forced to apply her own scholarship to a tragic personal situation, and what she learned from it.


Come and spend the time with us on January 18 exploring the resilience that's inside each one of us!

TTN CENTRAL OHIO

2020 HOLIDAY CHARITY

“BOOKS FOR BEECHCROFT KIDS
            
 
Each year TTN Central Ohio picks a charity during the Holiday Season and collects donations, either funds or items. This year, our planning committee chose “Books for Beechcroft High School Kids.”  You can help make dreams come true by donating to buy books for the kids at Beechcroft.
 
In June 2020, Antonia Mulvihill, who teaches English at Beechcroft High School, in the Columbus School District, made a presentation to Central Ohio TTN about her teaching methods and teaching English at Beechcroft. 
 
Our members who attended were so impressed and inspired by Antonia’s presentation, that they decided to make Books for Beechcroft Kids our charity for December.
 
Antonia’s quest is to “be the kind of teacher whom every kid wishes he had, the kind who makes you fall in love with learning.” She buys books for her students out of her own money because she believes “every student should have a chance to be great, to be educated, to explore what’s possible in the world beyond their teenage lives….”. 
 
Antonia’s English classes are much more than basic reading and writing, and she wants her students to understand the value of exemplary contemporary authors.  She would love to have a set of books available for each of her English class students and has identified the three books below as having the potential for delivering the kind of personal growth she is dedicated to providing for her students.  These books are not available from the school and most of her students cannot afford to buy them independently.
 
With your donation, sent to Mary Greenlee, who will order the books and take them to Antonia, you can contribute to this important gift.  Once she receives the books, Antonia will package and distribute the books to her students to take home and read.
 




To be a sponsor please send a check to Mary Greenlee, 878 Blind Brook Drive, Columbus, 43235 or Send by Paypal: marygreenlee@att.net  (Include name listing preferences)

$10.00  for 1 Book    
$20.00 for 2  Books  

$30.00 for 3 books

Please note if you would like to have your name as a sponsor in the Book Plate and how you want your name to appear.

Deadline to be included in the sponsorship gift:  January 1, 2021

HOLIDAY PARTY 2019

Since the shutdown in March caused by Covid 19, all of our lives have changed in so many different ways.

We've been left with the question of whether we'll ever be able to return to "normal" and what "normal" might even look like in the future.

In June, members of the Central Ohio TTN Writers Special Interest Group each wrote about how the pandemic had affected their lives, and it seemed appropriate for our November chapter meeting to bring our thoughts to the entire membership.

On November 16 at 6pm, join us virtually on Zoom for readings by the Writers Group members and for your opportunity to write your thoughts about how Covid 19 has affected your life as well. 

This is usually a favorite event of our members, and we hope you will join us!

Once you register, you will be sent a link to login to the Zoom meeting.

You must sign up here to attend...
