As the days shorten and the evenings get cooler, it’s clear that Autumn is upon us. Chrysanthemums and cornstalks abound and you may find yourself debating “what is the perfect pumpkin?” - round and fat or squat ‘Cinderella’, tiny or massive, luminescent orange or mottled, carved or pristine………the options are seemingly endless!
Many thanks to Westport’s Bike Lady, Tracy Yost, who took our small but mighty group on a great cruise around town last month. It was fun to be outdoors on a gorgeous day, touring Westport and discovering some hidden gems. For all of you off-leash dog-walkers (and anyone really), check out Haskins Preserve for a surprise natural treat just off Compo Road S. We hope to organize another ride with Tracy in the spring, so please let us know if you are interested in joining.
This month, we are planning a morning walk along the Norwalk River Valley Trail. Please see the newsletter listing for more detail and RSVP to Christina McVaney. As well, there are many other regular activities that we hope you will join and enjoy. Many thanks to the Activity Chairs for organizing and hosting our gatherings. Please check the newsletter and calendar for dates and details of what’s on offer including Fitness Walking, Evening Cards, TGIF, Meet & Greet, and Book Club.
Since all of our calendars fill up very quickly, please make a note of NNW’s Holiday Cocktail party at NEAT Wine Bar on Thursday December 1st from 6 pm. Keep an eye out for your Evite coming later this month.
We would still love to receive a favorite photo or two from our members to spruce up the NNW website. Also, if you have an interest in web design/hosting, we’d love your input as we work to make our site more appealing and user-friendly. Send your photos (png, gif, jpg format) to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add them to our site (and give you photo credit!).
October is the deadline to renew your annual NNW membership. Please see the link to renew in the newsletter and don’t miss out on the fun!
We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming activities. If you have any questions or a suggestion for an event, please don’t hesitate to contact us on email@example.com.
