  Ladies Bowling

The Tuesday Morning Bowling League kicked off our season on September 4th. The league has ten 3-person teams and we welcomed two new bowlers to the league: Kathy H. and Kimberlee U.   We bowl on Tuesday mornings at 9:15am at Escape in Troy (formerly known as Troy Lanes). The 32-week league is a non-sanctioned, fun and social league with three-person teams.  If you are interested in being on our sub list, please contact Susan H.

It’s friendly, fun, non-competitive, we get a little exercise and it’s a great way to socialize with the Club!! Call or email Carolyn B. or Susan H. if you’re interested, or send an e-mail to bowling_ladies@troynewcomers.com

Ladies Daytime Euchre

We are playing this month on Thursday, October 18 at 9:15 am at the home of Sherry D. Sherry lives in Macomb (see directory for address). Please RSVP to her by Tuesday, October 16. If you are not a regular hostess, let Sherry know if you wish to bring a breakfast item for that morning. We are beginner friendly and always looking for new people, so invite a new friend or come on by.

A Big Thank You to Pat M. for hosting in September and all that brought food! Hope to see everyone for a fun day of coffee, food, fun and laughter, and of course “Some Euchre Playing”, if we can fit it in!!!

Ladies Game Night (Girls’ Night Out)

This month we will meet at the home of Sue J. on Wednesday, October 17th at 7:00pm. We encourage any member to join us. It’s a fun evening out and a chance to see Newcomer friends and have some friendly competition playing easy to learn board games!

If you attend regularly and haven’t hosted in a while, please consider bringing an appetizer, dessert, or drinks to help out the hostess sometime during the year. Please let Sue know ahead of time so she can plan accordingly. If you’re coming, please contact Sue by Monday October 15th. We hope to see you there!

We still need hostesses for February, April and May. We won’t have Game Night unless we have a hostess! So if you haven’t hosted in a while, please consider hostessing this year.

Meadow Brook Ushering

This is your chance to see professional plays for free! We usher for 7 plays this upcoming season and are able to see the plays for less than an hour of your time. If you would like to usher next season starting in October 2018, email Laura C. Please see the dates in the newsletter to see if you are available for most of them; if not, please consider being a substitute because we need your commitment to usher as a regular.

We usher for the 3rd week of the play (not necessarily the 3rd week of the month). Ushers should report at least 50 minutes before their performance. The performances are on Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., Thursdays at 8:00 p.m., Fridays at 8:00 p.m., Saturdays at 6:00 p.m., and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. There is also an option to usher with your spouse if there is room. Please let me know immediately as spots are in high demand.

2018-2019 Season – Please see the latest newsletter for the full listing of plays and dates

We still need ushers for Sundays (need 6 people), Wednesdays (need 3 people) and Fridays (need 2 people).  Please let Laura know if you are available to usher on Sundays, Wednesdays or Fridays.
