EXCITING PAST EVENTS
2019 ANUAL LUNCHEON
ANNUAL LUNCHEON - June 11, 2019
Anyone attending the TTN/LI Annual Luncheon at The Mansion in Woodbury would have thought they had been transported back to the era of the Great Gatsby and the Roaring Twenties. In fact, the only person missing may have been Jay Gatsby himself. Many of the 300 TTN/LI members who attended the sold-out function arrived attired in that era’s fashions: there was lots of black and art deco gold and silver on display, along with more than a few feather boas and flapper headbands. The Mansion setting also contributed to the atmosphere of having travelled back to the heyday of the Gold Coast mansions.

How many of us would be brave enough to give up almost everything and everyone familiar and dear to us to live a life of our own choosing?

A Manifesto Against Ageism
“You look great for your age.” How many of us have been told that by some well-meaning friend and took this as a compliment? But this supposed compliment is really a form of ageism because it assumes that everyone your age (except you) looks old and looking old is bad. As speaker Ashton Applewhite told her audience of more than 100 TTN/LI women on April 16 at the Pompei Restaurant in West Hempstead, “Ageism is any judgement made about people on the basis of age” and this “ism” affects women more than men. Applewhite is the author of “This Chair Rocks-A Manifesto Against Ageism” and a frequent and passionate speaker on the subject. “Ageism enhances men and devalues women. Men and women experience ageing differently because society treats them differently.” Women buy into the societal assumption that we are not valued when we lie about our age, buy millions of dollars of anti-aging products and alter our appearance to look younger. Our age denial is expensive, futile and rooted in shame.

EVENT-CONTEMPORARY SOCIAL ISSUES (CSI)
Resilient, Empowered, Survivors, Leaders: These are some of the adjectives TTN/LI members used to describe the five First Ladies with ties to Long Island after we listened to Elizabeth Kahn Kaplan’s presentation on Friday, March 29 at the Heritage Club in Bethpage. The five who are associated with Long Island are: Julia Gardiner Tyler, Edith Kermit Carow Roosevelt, Anna Eleanor Roosevelt, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy and Barbara Pierce Bush.

The Women of Washington Square
What did Edith Wharton, Louisa May Alcott, Emma Lazarus, Emily Post and Eleanor Roosevelt have in common? Yes, they are all historic female figures we have heard of. We also can add to the list some less recognizable names: Mabel Dodge, Anne Lynch, and Jane Heap. It turns out all of these women are part of a group comprising “The Immigrant, Radical, Notorious Women of Washington Square.” More than 100 members of the TTN/LI chapter came to Molloy College on March 14 to celebrate Women’s History Month and to hear Joyce Gold describe these women, their accomplishments, and the 2.5 mile area in which they lived during at least a portion of their adult lives—the Washington Square area of Greenwich Village.
