Happy Spring!! Although it’s nice to have warmer weather….it’s not so nice for allergy sufferers right now. Thankfully, Christopher’s allergies are ok due to him being on some good medication to keep his suffering at bay :)
The last weekend in April (4/23-4/25) NYSOMOTC held their very first virtual Convention. We usually would be traveling to whatever location it is being held at, but this year, most of us traveled to Riverhead to have some time away and attend together virtually. It was a great time and I know we are all looking forward to Syracuse next year. Congratulations to Daniela on winning 2nd Place for the Newsletter Contest and to Doreen on Super State Rep. Also congratulations to Melissa on winning the MSS Calendar date of October 2nd!
Thanks for the Childrens Social team for coordinating the Spring bags and arranging some playdates. It’s nice to be able to get back outside and see people in-person again (socially distanced of course) and have the kids (and adults) play outside.
Speaking of in-person, the Rec Center is still closed for us to be able to meet there. We will be meeting via Zoom for May’s General Meeting, but we are going to try to have May’s Board Meeting in person at Ericka’s house in her backyard. Let’s hope we will be able to be back in-person at the Rec Center soon.
Happy Mother’s Day to everyone!!!
Welcome to May!
I hope everyone had a good month. April was great as we finally were able to somewhat have a convention. What a great time!!!! I was happy to be with my roomie Hope and this year my suite mates Susie and Kristen! All the ladies had a good time just laughing and loving the fact that we were free to nap whenever we wanted! LOL Congratulations to our new turtles! I love adding new girls to the tribe! I am truly “looking” forward to heading up to Syracuse next year and having a full-on convention. If you’re even thinking of going...Just GO!!!!
I wanted to give a shout out to our amazing Children and Adult Social committees. They are working so hard to bring some fun normalcy back to the club. They have come up with some great ideas to try and make our “return” as comfortable as possible for all involved. Great job ladies!!
I can’t believe elections are around the corner. These two years as Vice President have been a gift. I was lucky to work with our amazing President Susie who took me under her wing to show me the ropes. I have learned so much about our amazing club! Please consider taking a position with the committees. We love new people and new ideas.
I hope you have a wonderful month and I can’t wait to spend some time together at our installation dinner in June!
