I am pleased to announce we have "voted in" a new Board effective July 1, 2022. Please check out our "About Us" page to familiarize yourself with our new Board members. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to sign in to Encoreclubofnewcanaan.org and use our "Online Directory" to send us an email! Our new incoming President, Liz Orteig, will be communicating with you after June 30, 2022. As you may realize, Encore Club is now fully electronic, from our monthly newsletter, to our website, to our RSVP process, and including our Directory. Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with our website, including membership. It is now time for you to renew your membership for the upcoming July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2023 Encore year!
If you are looking for something to do, please click on our Events and Activities. You can peruse each event individually, or alternatively, click on "Calendar View" on the upper right hand corner, to plan your month's events. If you are afar, like many Encore members who spend part of the year elsewhere, enjoy the beauty of your landscape and community. WE are with you, wherever you may be! And we will be here when you return to New Canaan! During the summer, we typically slow down a bit, but Summer Tennis, Pickleball and a few other activities will continue. Please check our calendar at Encoreclubofnewcanaan.org
At this time, we continue to protect our member community against any spreading variant by asking our members to complete our Waiver online. While this requirement may change soon, we are not there yet. Encore Club of New Canaan's Executive Board has decided it is in the best interest of our members to require all of our members to execute the COVID -19 WAIVER in advance of attending our in-person activities effective immediately. This one time acknowledgement can easily be done online by clicking WAIVER (now) and you will be whisked away to our WAIVER page where you can register once and be done with it for the rest of our year through June 30, 2022. Thank you in advance.
For those new to our site, I welcome you to the Encore Club of New Canaan. Sharing, friendship and camaraderie is the purpose of our club. Encore is a woman’s club founded in 1985. There are lots of activities and events each month designed to bring people together and to fuel the body and mind. One of the best things about Encore is that members get to pick and choose their activities each month! This is a purely social club.
Encore Club of New Canaan welcomes members year round. AND, you don’t need to be a resident of New Canaan to join Encore. We also welcome members from surrounding towns. We encourage you to JOIN us!
As my term is coming to a close at the end of this month, I would like to say "thank you" for my two years as Encore Club of New Canaan President. I have enjoyed my time working with the Board and getting to know you, our members, much better. I have had lots of fun and hope you have too! And I look forward to continuing on the Board. Enjoy your summer!
If you are interested in learning and playing a fun card game then Canasta is for you. The group meets on Thursdays throughout the summer from 1:30 – 3:30 at Lapham Community Center.
