Satellite Groups

(Y's Women Members Only)

Book Group 1 will meet on Thursday, August 18, at 1 p.m. in the Seminar Room of the Westport Library. We are reading My Name Is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout. Please call Frankie Stein at 226-4219 or Connie Beskind at 255-8682 if you have any questions.
Book Group 2 will meet on Thursday, August 4 from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. at Regina Krummel’s house to discuss The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.  The discussion will be led by Barbara Rogan. Please let Regina know if you will be attending (853-7147 or rebilkru@sbcglobal.net).  
Book Group 3 does not meet during the summer.
Solos: During the summer, the Solos meet on Tuesday evenings at 5:45 p.m. at Compo Beach, at the picnic tables to the right of the cannons. Bring something to eat and drink and an appetizer or dessert to share. On the following dates we can enter with no beach sticker: August 2 and 16, September 6 and 20. Just tell the individual at the gate that you are with the Y’s Women. On the other Tuesdays, if you have no beach sticker, meet at Wells Fargo Bank on the Post Road in Westport at 5:30 p.m. to carpool.
Movie Time Committee: Beginning in September, the Movie Time Committee – Pam Abbott, Maybeth Wirtz, and Judith Schomer – will select a movie, day, and time and will send an email to those who have signed up for this program. Movie suggestions are welcome. The schedule will be flexible – not always the same day, time, or theater. The theaters selected are the Wilton Bow Tie Cinema, Bow Tie Royale in Norwalk, and the Garden Cinema. All have free parking. Most movies will start between 4:30 and 5:00 p.m., but occasionally there are earlier matinees. Participants can make their own arrangements for “After Parties” if they are interested, as there will be no scheduled restaurant selections or reservations. Please send an email to judith.schomer@gmail.com if you would like to be included in this program. Announcements will be made at the general meetings if timing is appropriate.

A word of thanks from your friendly trip leader to those in our Y’s Women organization who are so supportive of our various “trips & travel.” I am so very grateful to those of you who support this portion of our program.  Stayed tuned for 2016-17!

 A number of trips are still available: Danube River Cruise featuring Vienna and Budapest (August and October); Rhine River Castles, Alsace, & Switzerland (August, September, and October); Burgundy, Mediterranean, and Provence, France (August, September, and October); and Paris and Normandy (August, September, and October).

About our monthly newsletters

Printed monthly newsletters are no longer being mailed to members. Instead, they are provided as printable computer files in Adobe Portable Document (PDF) format. To print them, the Adobe Acrobat Reader must be installed on your computer. If it is not already there, download it here.

Around the 25th of each month, the link to the next month's printable PDF newsletter is provided in two ways: in an email to members, and on this website (upper right corner). In addition, the newsletter's listings of dates and places are viewable on this website at a glance.

If you are not already receiving emails, please check the Membership Roster to be sure we have your correct email address. Notify Doris Levinson of any changes or corrections: 227-3371  or drjlevinson@gmail.com. A member's e-mail address will only be used for the monthly newsletters and for occasional important announcements.

To prevent our emails from landing in your spam/junk folder, add info@yswomen.org to your address book.
