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.

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.
