President’s Message


 Brunswick Newcomers Club President's Message May 2016

I don't know about all of you, but for me, time seems to go faster and faster! It feels like I just became your president and now we are winding down the 2015-16 season of BNC.

I am pleased to announce that we have secured a new meeting venue for BNC, beginning with our September 21, 2016 meeting. As many of you know we have been struggling with trying to accommodate our growing membership at the Southport Community Center. We will certainly miss the beautiful building and breath taking location that the SCC has afforded us for the past years. However, we have outgrown the space and will be moving to Murrow Hall at Trinity United Methodist Church, located across from the Southport Post Office on Nash Street.

Ladies and Gentlemen: I am urging you to consider volunteering to become a committee member. Our organization is the huge success it is due to the hard work and efforts of our membership. I will be sending out a separate email blast soon to let you know where help is needed. Please step up to the plate! Personally, I have been on a variety of committees prior to assuming the presidency. I have to say it was very rewarding; I made many new friends and had an abundance of positive learning experiences.

Please give back to the BNC that gives so much to you!

Any questions or concerns please contact me . The president's door is always open.

Helenea  Grace

President, BNC
