Hello again, everyone!
The last two months have been thrilling to watch. Activities have continued and grown, our Happy Hours have increased in attendance and fun (38 at the October HH!), you have given generously of your time and efforts in volunteering to help our community, and we have added new members to our ENN community. We have certainly lived up to our motto, “Fun and Friendships!”
By the time this newsletter goes out, we hope to have all three park benches in place, with a plaque celebrating our 60th anniversary. I would like to thank every member of ENN for their help in providing funds for these benches which will serve as a testament to the Evergreen community of ENN’s appreciation in being a part of this incredible community. The benches are located at Stagecoach Park, Marshdale Park and at Bergen Park.
The ENN Board has established a primary term goal for 2021-2022 of community participation and help to various non-profit organizations in Evergreen. We will continue this theme throughout the 60th anniversary term which will include a Food Drive for the EChO Food Pantry. Last year, on short notice and in very cold weather, the ENN membership stood tall and gave almost 800 pounds of food to the pantry. I personally would like to exceed that amount this year. When we have a specific date and location, we will let you know.
We have not forgotten why ENN exists; Fun and Friendships, which include eating, drinking, and enjoying the company of our ENN friends. We will expand our Winter Party so we can have more members involved in the festivities. Save the date of December 8th @ Hiwan Golf Club.
Your ENN Board continues to work diligently and energetically to facilitate member involvement in our activities and we are looking for ways (and people!) to expand our current list of activities. I appreciate the hard work our Activity Leaders do in continuing their activities, and being creative and imaginative in keeping their groups involved.
In the following months we will have several holidays to celebrate, so I would like to wish everyone the best of times as we celebrate the days to come. May they be filled with joy, laughter, and fun.
