PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE: Ann Carroll (410-224-2753) [email protected]
It was a grey, rainy day but you’d never have guessed it when you looked around the room at Carrol’s Creek on
February 3rd. So many smiling faces! The theme was “First Ladies,” and Kathy Formisano and her team did an
exceptional job carrying it through – from the tables dedicated to first ladies, to the program of first lady trivia, to
the generous selection of related books as door prizes. Diane DiNardo sent us home with two handsome coasters
that she hand-stamped -- a lovely reminder of a happy afternoon. As one member observed, “I had no idea these
luncheons were so lovely! I’ve never been to one before, and I’m so glad I came!”
Our two yearly luncheons are one of the “perks” of belonging to New Annapolitans. Your ticket price only covers
part of the cost, as the club is able to boost the amenities a bit from our treasury, and there is no cost for the
dozens of hours the committee puts in to making the event so very special. And there is another aspect that
endears the events to the hearts of many of us – random, yet assigned, seating.
When applications to the lunch arrive, the committee assigns the tables one by one. This means you are often
seated with people you don’t know – and this goes to the heart of our club. I heard one member exclaim as she
left her table, “It was perfect! Four people I didn’t know at all, and two that I did! We had such a good time!”
This aspect also makes the luncheons ideal for new members, who may worry that they don’t know enough
people yet and so are hesitant about attending.
You’ll have another chance soon enough. Our next luncheon is June 15, and we also have a festive Silent Auction
to look forward to! Join us – you’ll be glad you did.
Ann Carroll
our vibrant organization, ask her to submit a letter to the
Board addressed to me. In addition, be sure to
encourage perspective members to visit the New
Annapolitans website at www.annapolitans.org where
links are available to download our current newsletter
and New Member Application.

2nd VICE PRESIDENT-PROGRAMS
Matty Matzen (410-280-1447)
[email protected]
March is "Women in History" month, and the program
honors women in the military, with a presentation by the
curator, Tracie Logan, on the USNA exhibition "Ability,
Not Gender," opening June 30, 2016. The title comes
from Secretary Carter's recent remarks on the repeal of
the last combat exclusion laws. In addition, Jill Cesari,
current Battle Watch Captain at the Naval Operation
Center and U.S. Naval Academy graduate, will
complement the discussion with real work experiences.
In her recent assignment as Commanding Officer on the
USS Shoup in the Middle East, she led 305 officers and
enlisted personnel on board a Flight IIA Arleigh Burke
destroyer, responsible for executing mission tasks across
18 warfare specialties. New Annapolitans is proud that
Jill is the daughter of New Annapolitans Secretary, Jo
Ann Cesari.

the qualification of having moved to the area in the past
two years but have recently experienced a major life
change like retirement or the death of a spouse. If you
know anyone like this who you think could benefit from

instruction and a group in which to play and learn. We
play every Monday at the Park Place party room. We
often put our hands down after the game and see how
we might have bid or played differently. We are very
low key--lots of laughs and no one gets upset at
anyone. We usually have 2 tables and sometimes 3 if
everyone is in town. An email is sent out on
Wednesday and you must respond by Saturday if you
want to play on the upcoming Monday. We
accommodate extras so no one is left out. March’s bridge evening will be hosted by Kathy Nevel
on Friday March 25th at 7:30 pm.Members on our

on Evite. Space may be limited. Please call or email

help clean up.
Classes will be limited to about 10 ladies, and we’ll
meet monthly for about 3 hours, 11 am to 2 pm. Costs
will vary according to the menu, but it will be based on

a mailing list is assembled.

We will meet on Monday, March 14th. Contact
Stephanie for the prompt and the name of the hostess
and directions.
We are a group of music lovers who enjoy sharing a
variety of musical experiences (classical, jazz, opera,
international and popular). We share information on
musical happenings in the Annapolis, DC, and
Baltimore areas. Members can decide to meet for an
activity, if interested. We also schedule occasional
events that may include a tour, musical performance and
dining out. An appreciation of music is the only
requirement. Please let Linda Russell know if you
would like to be added to our mailing list.
We meet once a month to share short pieces that we
have written from our own experiences or insights. The
topic is selected by the hostess and members come to
the meeting with 2-3 page written responses, having
interpreted the prompt in whatever way they chose, and
read them to the group. These musings or recollections
from our childhood, adolescence, and adulthood allow
us to share ourselves with others in a safe environment.
All things shared by others are agreed to be held in
confidence.

This is a lively group of women who are native speakers
of Spanish, married to native speakers of Spanish, have
lived in Spanish speaking countries, or are “wannabes”
who have some background knowledge and would like
to brush up on their rusty skills. We have been meeting
for lunch at local Latin American restaurants to eat and
chat. Once on the mailing list, you will be notified of
future meetings.
Tuesday NANAs enjoy walking outdoors and exploring
Annapolis and the greater metropolitan area. Walks are
usually followed by an optional stop for coffee or lunch
at a local restaurant. Each week’s walk is planned and
led by a member of the group.
If it rains on a Tuesday, we walk in the Westfield
Annapolis Shopping Mall at 9 am. We meet at the sofas
in front of the interior Nordstrom entrance.

TENNIS—ALL COMERS

New Members
Winter continues, so our tennis group is playing indoors
at the Brigade Sports Complex every Monday. We are
limited by the number of people per court when we play
indoors, so we take sign-ups on a first come, first served
basis (pun intended!). If you are interested in joining
us, please contact Kim Taft.

Women on Water continues to be a group of wonderful
women who love to be on the water. We are looking
forward to spring and a chance to be on boats, kayaks,
or anything that moves through the water. There will be
a meeting in April to express suggestions and plans for
the upcoming season. See you there!
