Auxiliary President’s Message: Dec 2020 1

Christmas, the wonderful time of year that we all love. Of course, this year will be completely different than any other Christmas in our lives. The holiday parties, dinners, special lunches with friends and family will be nearly nonexistent. We must find new ways to celebrate not only the holy season but keeping in touch […]

Let’s hope the luck of the Irish will shine on the Colombo Club Auxiliary activities for the rest of 2022. I was looking forward to the aroma of corned beef and cabbage coming from the CC dinning room, but it looks like it will be coming from our own kitchens. Our board will meet soon […]

Here it is November 2020. Let us talk about how thankful we all should be. Thank God that we have not seen any friends or family suffer with this virus. I have not heard of any of our members contracting COVID. When we do get the opportunity to see people we care about (always under […]

HALLELUJAH, it actually looks like Colombo Club Women’s Auxiliary is planning events for 2022. I realize that there are still doubts about safety, but with the completion of our immunization, our safety is not guaranteed, but it should allow us to begin letting real life back into our lives. We have actually planned our first […]

Summer is over and what tales we will recall. I now have an extensive collection of protective face masks, one for almost every outfit. Of course, most outfits consist of shorts, shirts, casual slacks or jeans. No reason to dress up because there are no places to go. We all sat back and contemplated what […]

WOW, we held our first auxiliary meeting since February 2020, and it felt like coming home. We started an hour earlier, we had security watching over us in the parking lot and we finished before 7:00 pm. It felt great seeing some of our members in person. We also had several members use our Zoom […]

Aux President’s Message: Sept 2020 10

It has been quite a summer. First of all, the never-ending virus. The uncertainty of being able to make any kind of plans. Once you find friends who feel safe enough to even tempt social distancing, then to find a place to social distance. Really? A virtual baby shower, a wedding by Zoom and a […]
