General Meetings

As you know, because of precautions required to prevent the spread of COVID-19, all Y’s Women General Meetings have been canceled until further notice.  Please STAY HOME, STAY SAFE, and take good care of yourselves. We will keep you informed as further information becomes available.

Satellite Groups

(Y's Women Members Only)
Book Group 2, the Movie Club, Lunch and Trivia, and Carpool and Go have canceled their April events.
Book Group 3 will meet – most likely by conference call, as we did successfully in March – on Friday, April 10 at 10:30 am to discuss A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous 14th Century by Barbara Tuchman. This is a vividly written history of the crises suffered in Europe in the Late Middle Ages. Members will receive an email with the specifics on Wednesday, April 8. Questions? Contact Doris Levinson at 227-3371 or drjlevinson@gmail.com.
Solos will not meet in April but plans to hold an event on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25 at Joan Weinstein's house – 46 Tannery Lane South, Weston, CT. Details will be provided in the future.

Trips coming up!

Because of the uncertainty as to when the United Nations will be able to reopen for tours, the April 22 trip has been canceled. We will consider a future trip to the UN when conditions are safe to do so. As for the present, stay home and stay safe. If you wish to have your check returned, send a stamped, self-addressed envelope to Geri Hanslick, 117 Newtown Turnpike, Westport, CT 06880. If you prefer to have us void and destroy your check, contact Geri at (646) 789-3013 or gerihanslick@yahoo.com.


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.
