Although September is the ninth month of the calendar year, I always think of September as the beginning of the year. Perhaps it is because I never grew out of a school­driven schedule from the time I was a child myself, to a parent of school children as well as an elementary school teacher. Coming out of the hot and slower­paced days of summer, September symbolizes a fresh start – both with the new school year and a new year for College Club. Remember our theme: Together we are stronger and possibilities abound for what we can achieve this year with a membership of 62 dedicated women. We are happy to welcome new members Mary DePaola and Helen Ling to our College Club family. Ellen Harrison, Marie Leppert and their team have scheduled another year of enjoyable and educational programs and I hope you will attend as many meetings as you can. Not only will you be entertained and enlightened, but you will share in the camaraderie of a group of intelligent and motivated women. 2015 marks the 82th anniversary of the founding of College Club as well as the publication of our 52nd calendar. Although College Club takes a summer hiatus, much work is accomplished during this time to produce our Community Calendar and our Directory, which are both available for pick up at the home of Jean Naugle. Each member is required to purchase or sell four calendars as part of her membership commitment. Thank you to all those members who responded to the June 30th deadline for dues payment. My thanks goes to our Co­Vice Presidents, Pat Swick for the hours she has devoted to producing this year’s Directory and to Jean Naugle for handling the distribution of the calendar and directories. A big thank you goes to Mari McDevitt and her Committee for again producing a beautiful calendar. Thank you to Barbara Cronenberger who single­handedly inputted all the information into the calendar. Thanks to all those on the Calendar Committee who made calls to organizations, solicited new advertisers, chose the calendar cover, helped with proofreading or distribution and did all the work essential to the calendar production. Autumn is the beginning of many activities for the Club. Our annual Clothing Drive is scheduled for Saturday, September 19th. Thanks to Cathy Hirschhorn for organizing the clothing drive and the summer schedule of clothing pick­ups. The Scotch Plains Thrift Shop has greatly helped us with their clothing donations. Please support the shop by donating your better quality clothing to them, saving the rest for our clothing drive. We are again participating in the Lord & Taylor fundraiser on October 29th. Carolyn Dittus and Ginger Rachko are co­chairing this fundraiser and will be selling tickets at our September meeting. The evening of November 10th will be College Night at SPFHS. Co­chairs Sue Spirko and Joanne Glover have been working on this annual event and will be looking for volunteers to help that night. The first general meeting of the 2015­2016 year will be Monday, September 21st. That evening, we will have a presentation led by Scotch Plains­Fanwood High School alumna, Meg Reilly ’08. The title is “Adventures on the High Seas in a Year­long 47,000 Mile Ocean Race”. This would be a wonderful meeting to bring a guest and I would encourage you to invite a friend, neighbor or relative to join us that evening. I look forward to beginning the new College Club year and to seeing you all on the 21st.

This is really a great message from the president i think. The starting of the school and the education is really important. The teachers of the school are responsible for all things in the school about the children.visit http://www.researchpaperservicesreviews.com/affordablepapers-com-review/ for more info.

It is a really great message from The President to encourage students to be best and encouragement is also important due to vacation students don't want to go to school so they need motivation
