               "BE ALL THAT YOU CAN BE"

isn't just for the Army; it applies as well to TTN/LI Chapter members. Our chapter champions the process of maintaining a positive attitude and feeling good about ourselves. Through lectures, workshops, volunteer activities, social events and educational programs, we encourage self-enrichment, keeping fit and engaging fully in life as we age gracefully. Our chapter has about 700 women over 50 who connect and interact in more than 80 special interest groups (SIGs) and transition peer groups (TPGs) that meet the emotional, physical, and cultural needs of our members.

Each stage of transition has its challenges and our chapter makes life an adventure to be embraced.

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.

Prom Boutique
Once again TTN/LI volunteers gave their all to support the Prom Boutique at Nassau Community College.  The Long Island Volunteer Center sponsors this wonderful event every year and TTN/LI has been a part of it for many years. Girls who are graduating from high school and cannot afford the expense of attending their prom are given the opportunity to be beautifully outfitted at no charge.
TTN volunteers unpack and sort the gowns, shoes, purses, and jewelry to make the room resemble a boutique.  We help the girls select their dresses and accessories and watch them become princesses before our eyes.

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.

MILITARY BRIDGE

Question:  How many women named “Susan” does it take to make an entertaining afternoon?  Answer:  At least a dozen.  Sprinkle into the mix some “Carol’s,” “Judy’s,” a few “Ellen’s” and “Sherry’s” and you have the recipe for another successful Program Committee event.
