DEAR ENCORE FRIENDS—We are pleased to announce that as of July 22 we have added Encore Hiking (weekly) and Encore Kayaking (August) to our In-Person activities. Currently, we also have Encore Summer Tennis being played at Mead Park. EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, 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!
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. In this issue, we are including a POLL to gauge your feelings on socializing this Fall. It is easy to take. Just click on the blue POLL word and you will be whisked away to our Poll. Please take a minute to complete our 3 question POLL (click now) and press SUBMIT at the bottom so your responses are tabulated. We would like to know how you feel about Encore Club of New Canaan socializing in this time of “social distancing” so that we may plan ahead for appropriate activities. Your input is very important to us. Poll results will be discussed in the August President's Letter, so please be sure to let us know your thoughts by taking the POLL now if you haven't done so yet.
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.
We are excited to have kayaking, hiking and tennis as mentioned above. But many of our traditional inside group activities are also being held currently on ZOOM. In addition, please feel free to explore our Events and Activities as we have identified some of our favorite books, films, hiking locations, recipes and more for our membership to share 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 Board is meeting this summer to discuss possible options for the Fall. We will be back in full swing when possible. In the meantime, please Please DO stay in touch with each other and please PARTICIPATE with us online. You have a friend! Many, many friends!
