SOPHIA’S GATHERING had an interesting month in November! We were all planning on a great retreat, Time to Heal, when along came Super Storm Sandy, and all the plans came to a screeching halt! All agreed it was a good decision to cancel, and St. Birgitta’s Sister Eunice graciously let us reschedule with no penalty on Saturday, April 20, 2013. Thanks to all those who were so supportive during this experience, and to all who had signed up and paid, for their understanding and patience. See you all in April!
Now we are looking forward to our Women’s Christmas Coffee on Thursday, December 13 from 9:30-11:30 AM in the parlor. You won’t recognize the parlor as it will be all dressed up in its Christmas finery, thanks to hosts Nancy Aldrich and Audrey Demetres, the “dynamic Duo” who is becoming famous for creating a parlor transformation in just a couple of hours. The whole planning Board is involved in this event, with each member contributing their favorite delicious snack to delight the rest of us. You simply can’t miss this warm, welcoming gathering! Your Evite will arrive soon, thanks to our incredible Communications chairperson, Nancy Esteva, so please let us know that you will join us, and it will be our pleasure to welcome you!
