For those of us 50 and older, our world is changing. What’s next for us? How do we want to spend our time? The Long Island chapter of The Transition Network is a great resource that offers many options to help us answer these questions. We are part of a vibrant national organization that supports women 50 and older during times of professional and personal change. We connect our members with each other and with valuable resources so that together we discover new perspectives and opportunities; which, in turn, enhance our ability to decide what impact to have – in our communities and on ourselves. TTN is a catalyst that sparks collective life-long learning, socializing and networking, personal growth, professional development, and community enhancement.

A Day At The Mosque

CONTEMPORARY SOCIAL ISSUES (CSI)-A Day at the Mosque

How do we foster unity and understanding in “our little corner of the world”--Long Island? It’s
not an easy goal to achieve, especially in today’s turbulent times, but on Thursday, November
29, TTN’s CSI committee took a step in that direction by presenting a program entitled “A Day
at the Mosque.” The sold-out event took place at the Islamic Center of Long Island in
Westbury, and was moderated by Dr. Isma Chaudhry, formerly the Center’s first female
president, and currently its first female chairperson of the Board of Trustees. A traditional
lunch was followed by a discussion, in which Dr. Chaudhry, along with the Center’s Mufti
Mohammad Farhad, provided the rapt audience with a lesson in “Islam 1.1.”

ANNUAL LUNCHEON—JUNE 12, 2018
Our signature event of the year, the TTN/LI Annual Luncheon, is described by one of our chapter members, Bonnie Sibener:
Who said you can’t eat atmosphere – you most definitely can! TTN/LI’s annual luncheon was held at the Crescent Club on Long Island Sound on June 12. Over 300 capri-clad ladies attended the sold-out affair on a made to order, gloriously sunny day. Cocktail hour is always the best part and stations were set up with fruits and veggies. Butler service brought out huge shrimp with sauce in little dishes and mushroom, phyllo dough pinwheels. The vendors were out in force with everything from jewelry, to tops and dresses, to quiche and pocketbooks. Time for some serious shopping, eating, drinking and schmoozing! The large ballroom, where we were served a delicious lunch, was filled with hat-clad ladies attentively listening for their raffle names to be called. It was particularly gratifying to know that $2,000 of the raffle proceeds will be used to purchase bathing suits, towels and summer equipment, so children living in a Brentwood shelter will be able to attend summer camp.

CELEBRATING WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH
CELEBRATING WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH-March 15, 2018
Did you know that a woman was instrumental in completing the Brooklyn Bridge?  During TTN/LI’s annual Women's History event, we learned about that woman, Emily Warren Roebling, who took over when her husband became ill, as well as many other brilliant and determined women whose unheralded contributions helped make New York the great city that it is.  Our guest speaker, Julie Scelfo, is the author of The Women Who Made New York.  Ms. Scelfo captivated the audience with her stories about some of the extraordinary women whose lives impacted and improved the lives of future generations. The beautiful images of these women, provided by Hallie Heald, enhanced her lecture. Approximately 150 TTN/LI members took advantage of this free event at Molloy College, which was also attended by guests from AAUW and Sienna Women’s College.
