General Meetings

The Y's Women hope that you are enjoying your Summer and we will resume our meetings on September 10th.

Satellite Groups

(Y's Women Members Only)

Book Group 2 will meet on Thursday, August 2 from 1:30 to 3:00 pm at Panera Bread, located in Westport at 1860 Post Road East (next to Home Goods). The book to be discussed is Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng, and the discussion will be led by Doris Skutch. Please contact Arlene Bloom at bloomah@sbcglobal.net or 254-9096 to RSVP.
Solos: Natalie Einson will host the Solos on Friday, July 20 at her lovely home at 29 Marion Road, Westport. She will be serving paella and flan in her backyard. The evening begins at 5:30 pm, and the cost is $30. If you wish to attend, please make your check out to Joan Weinstein – Solos and mail it to her at 46 Tannery Lane South, Weston, CT 06883. Also, Parks & Recreation has given us permission to go to Compo Beach without a sticker on Tuesday evening July 24, August 7, and August 21. Just identify yourself as a member of the Y’s Women. We meet at the picnic tables to the right of the cannons at 6:00 pm. Bring your dinner, something to drink (alcohol in plastic, please), and something to share such as cheese, fruit, soup, or cookies.
The Movie Club will meet on Wednesday, July 18 at 1:30 pm at Panera Bread. There will be no August meeting. If you want to be put on the notice list, contact Judith Schomer at Judith.schomer@gmail.com. Our July film selection, which has received a 97% rating by “Rotten Tomatoes,” is First Reformed: “Reverend Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke) is a solitary, middle-aged parish pastor at a small Dutch Reform church in upstate New York on the cusp of celebrating its 250th anniversary. Once a stop on the Underground Railroad, the church is now a tourist attraction catering to a dwindling congregation, eclipsed by its nearby parent church, Abundant Life, with its state-of-the-art facilities and 5,000-strong flock. When a pregnant parishioner (Amanda Seyfried) asks Reverend Toller to counsel her husband, a radical environmentalist, the clergyman finds himself plunged into his own tormented past, and equally despairing future, until he finds redemption in an act of grandiose violence. From writer-director Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver; American Gigolo; Affliction) comes a gripping thriller about a crisis of faith that is at once personal, political, and planetary.”
