Summer is upon us and, although we will have no general meetings in July and August, many of the Hobbyists activities will continue, including hiking, golf, bridge, walking, tennis, Habitat for Humanity and trips and tours.
So, check the website regularly to keep up with what's happening.

A quick review of the second quarter of 2016 shows that we added 19 members; had three interesting speakers at our general meetings covering such topics as art, WWII veterans' stories and the human side of terrorist attacks; and enjoyed a great fellowship luncheon in April.

Meanwhile, the Lunch Bunch enjoyed a fine outing on June 5th at Lili's Bistro in Washington Township and we had a very interesting day at the United Nations in New York.
24 Hobbyists and companions explored Arizona and the Grand Canyon

Finally, on June 9, over 260 Hobbyists and guests attended the Hobbyists Follies, produced by Bob Stevenson, Bill Carbone and Jim McKeown and directed by Tony La Femina. It was a great success. The food was delicious, the entertainment - entertaining, and much fun was had by all.

Looking ahead, on July 4th the Village of Ridgewood will be honoring Hobbyists Unlimited at the flag raising ceremony at Wilsey Square at 9AM on July 4th and we have been asked to be special guests in the parade as well. So, watch for your friends and fellow members in the parade and attend the ceremony if you can. Also in July, Habitat for Humanity will have a Hobbyists for Habitat Day (July 20); plan to show up to help out on that day. Meanwhile we will have extended tours over the summer: on the Danube to the Black Sea, the Canadian Rockies and to Gettysburg and the Pennsylvania Dutch country.

Finally, don't forget to sign up for our 50th Anniversary Picnic on September 9th at Graydon Pool and our dinner/dance celebration on October 10th. The picnic will be catered this year and the dinner/dance will be our special birthday party with great food and a 12-piece band.

See you all in September, if not before, and have a great summer.

Jim Sutherland
