Glen Ridge

Golden Circle Newsletter - September 2019

Message from the President   Hello Everyone. We have just started our new year with great success. It was a wonderful turn out for our first meeting, with a few vacation stories from our friends. It seemed like most of us had a lovely summer, with good weather. We also had a visit from Helen at the library with a new schedule for the fall, with lots of new activities being offered. Our first lunch meeting was most informative, with our friend Jessica, the Dietitian, from Shoprite. We all got some great tips when "Cooking for One or Two."
  • Membership Meeting - Our first meeting of the month is on Wed. Oct 2. We will have another speaker, dropping by with new information on our town of Glen Ridge, to keep us in the loop.
  • Health Luncheon - Our luncheon with guest speaker is on October 16. He is Dennis McGowan from the State of NJ, with some terrific savings available that we may not know about. This should be very helpful to all our Seniors. Sign up at the Train Station or call 973-748-2924.
  • Jitney Trip - In September we went to Palazzo in Montclair, for the first time. I think it will be on our list for another visit, it was well received by all. This month we will be returning to Eppes Essen in Livingston to help celebrate Rosh Hashanah. We'll be going there on Thursday October 24, leaving the Train Station at 11.30. Sign up at the Train Station or call 973-748-2924.
