PRESIDENT’ S MESSAGE: Jean Phillips (410-757-7774)

In October I think of orange, the color of pumpkins, the color in the many changing and falling leaves, and the color of
the sunset. I think of crisp fall days filled with bright sunlight.

Almost everywhere the fall season is beautiful. I’ve experienced it in Minnesota during a glorious fall visit with my son
and daughter-in-law, in Arizona when my daughter lived there, in Washington State where she lives now, in Chicago, my
home of many years, and in New York City. How beautiful Central Park is in October! I’ve experienced the glory of
these colors while looking down at the park from the roof-top garden at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. And, of course,
I won’t neglect to mention the fabulous fall scene right here in our own Annapolis and surrounds.

As I write, our yard service is trimming my trees and cutting down my Black-eyed Susans, Iris and Echinacea in
preparation for winter. It’s hard to see this summer season go, but the warmth of the fall colors reminds me of the
friendships I’ve made right here at New Annapolitans. I’m looking forward to going to my interest groups, hearing the
wonderful programs that will be presented these next months at our first Wednesday general meetings, and I am very
much looking forward to our 25th Birthday Celebration at our February Luncheon.

I wish you a glorious season of colors!                 Jean Phillips

weather permitting. Karen will be going out on Fridays.
If you are interested in joining her, please contact her at
410-268-7288 by the Monday before the sail. Karen
generally tries to leave the dock at 9:00 a.m. and is back

Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and is berthed

for lunch on the boat. Unfortunately, we are restricted to
no more than six people on each boat, so we must
operate on a “first come, first served” basis.

Since the weather can be unpredictable in October, each
captain will be deciding on a weekly basis whether or
not to take her boat out and will let you know via email.
