In a brief moment, or so it seemed, our eager anticipation and festive preparation for the holiday season came to an abrupt end. We bid our loved ones adieu and began the cheerless process of taking down the decorations we so excitedly put up. We packed away twinkling lights and glittery ornaments; we carried Christmas trees to the curb or back to the attic. I don't know about you, but for me, a twinge of melancholy stole my exuberance and lingers still. How to make the transition from post holiday blues to joyful, hopeful hearts? Come to our January BNC meeting - rekindle friendships; embrace and partake in exciting, upcoming events; say “yes” to new adventures.
We have so much to look forward to as we stand at the threshold of 2020! Let me whet your appetites with a tease of what's to come. Our Wine Club is presenting Romantic Named Wines. The romance continues with a Valentine Dinner Dance at the Southport Community Center on February 12th. The Lunch Bunch’s chosen restaurant of the month is The Bridge Tender in Wilmington. The Special Interests have numerous events prepared including a sunset Lighthouse Tour.
This month the Give Back 2 Brunswick’s recipient is the Sheriff’s Animal Protective Services. Your help is needed with gifts of dog, puppy, cat and kitten dry food. Also, laundry detergent, Blue Dawn dish detergent, towels, dog kong’s and cat toys.
We are looking forward to welcoming our guest speaker, Becky Skiba, who is the Coastal Regional Education Specialist of the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.
As you can see, we have a lot to entice our membership into welcoming 2020. Our meeting is January 15th at 10 at the Trinity United Methodist Church on 209 E Nash Street, Southport. Arrive early to browse thru our events and enjoy the goodies served by the welcoming Hospitality Committee.
