President's Message

DEAR FRIENDS:  ALL ENCORE "IN-PERSON" EVENTS REQUIRE YOUR ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF OUR NEW COVID-19 WAIVER  (CLICK NOW).   Like going to the your dentist or to your hairdresser, Encore Club requires your agreement to "hold harmless"  and "indemnify" Encore Club,  Encore Board members and our membership against claims of transmission of COVID-19.   Your health and that of your family and friends is of paramount importance to us.  Please participate only when you feel 100% comfortable. Encore Club continues to offer many events on ZOOM, including Book Group, Critic's Corner and EATS and special events like LADIES Night Out.  Please join us soon!

Dear Encore Friends--I am excited to be your new President and, with our new Board, will do everything I can to keep you up-to-date of our activities and well informed of our plans going forward.

For those new to our site, I welcome you to the Encore Club of New Canaan. Sharing, friendship and camaraderie is the purpose of our club. Encore is a woman’s club founded in 1985. There are lots of activities and events each month designed to bring people together and to fuel the body and mind. One of the best things about Encore is that members get to pick and choose their activities each month!  This is a purely social club.

Many of our traditional group activities are being held currently on ZOOM including Book Group and Critic's Corner.  In addition, please feel free to explore our Events and Activities  page, scrolling to the bottom, where you will be able to see our most current activities in chronological order.  Additionally, we have compiled lists our favorite books, movies, local hiking locations, recipes for our membership to enjoy on their own.

The Encore Club of New Canaan welcomes members year round. You don’t need to be a resident of New Canaan to join Encore. We also welcome members from surrounding towns. We encourage you to JOIN us!  

Our 2020 Fall calendar of events and activities are now underway.  Please take a look plan to join us.  Please DO stay in touch with each other and please DO participate with us in ZOOM. PLEASE visit our website often for new events and RSVP's.  We will see you soon!

Be Well!

Hiking with Liz

Get out into nature and most of the stress we are experiencing these days will melt away. 

Fall is the best season for hiking.  It is a relatively safe, outdoor activity.  Hikes are planned every two weeks on a Friday now that the fall season is underway.
