PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE: Patience Chaplin (410-224-2044)
I moved to Annapolis from Connecticut four and a half years ago and joined the New Annapolitans Club after repeatedly
seeing an ad in the Capital Gazette. I didn’t know what to expect, but came to my first meeting with an open mind and
heart. And I have never looked back with regret!
Hats off to Charlotte Featherstone, Norma Farrell, Bette Henick and Ann Carroll who have been great models for me. I
pledge to honor our welcoming tradition to newcomers, to move our ever-growing organization forward, and to
safe-guard each facet of governance that our fine board represents. I am here and honored to support them and our
thriving club!
Please support us as we do you. Offer to help us as your schedule allows. Make a special and determined effort to look
for those new members with red name tags before our general meeting – reach out to them, introduce them to others
nearby, and be the friend you are to me.
For many, the Interest Groups are the main attraction and help us transition from a big general meeting to small group
activities that we look forward to. Our first general meeting on Wednesday, September 7th at 10 am, will provide a long
and interesting ‘menu’ from which to choose the interest groups of your desire!
Others have talked about being with like-minded individuals and there is certainly truth to that statement. I would
encourage each of you to come to meetings with an open mind and heart and enjoy a variety of programs.
I feel honored to serve as your President this year and give back to this fine organization. I’ll be looking for you ~
Patience Chaplin

Welcome to New Annapolitans! All newcomers
(members for less than a year) are invited to attend
the September Newcomers Coffee at the home of
Ginny Sattler on Thursday, September 15th at 10 am.
This is an opportunity to meet other newcomers and
to learn about activities within New Annapolitans and
current happenings in and around Annapolis. Please
watch for the email from your Big Sister with your
personal invitation and additional details. I hope that
you will join us.
As most of you know, the year before last we
approved a new clarification to our Standing Rules to
admit prospective members who do not fit the
qualification of having moved to the area within the
past two years, but have recently experienced a major
life change such as retirement or the death of a
spouse. If you know anyone like this who you think
could benefit from our organization, ask her to submit
a letter to the Board addressed to me.

New Annapolitans' website at www.annapolitans.org

Member Application.

BRIDGE – BEGINNER
Barbara Trotter (410-956-4720)
[email protected]
We are a group that meets every Monday from 1:30
to 3:30 pm in the Park Place party room. We began as
a group of rusty bridge players who had played in the
past but needed instruction in catching up and starting
again. We have taken lessons and a number are still
pursuing improvement with lessons at the Severna
Park Bridge Club. We are low key talking about
bidding, replaying the hands and helping one another
learn. No pressure…just a fun group! You must
however, have a working knowledge of bridge basics
in the current style of Audrey Grant or similar
author/teacher as this group is not for someone who
has never played before.
Bookies will meet on September 8th at the home of
Ginger DeLuca. The meeting will begin at 2:00
pm. We will be discussing the book, The Summer
Before the War by Helen Simonson. All are
welcome, but an RSVP is required. Please call Ginger
at 410-626-0098 or email her at
[email protected] by Monday, September
5th. Space may be limited
HEADLINES & HISTORY BOOK CLUB
(4thTuesday from 2-4 pm)
Deborah Doty (410-757-7050)
[email protected]
Emails are sent out every Wednesday and you must
respond with an e-mail by Saturday if you wish to
play on Monday. You will receive an email indicating
your response was received. We are going to try “first
come, first serve” in signing up to play until we have
full tables. Those who sign up after that will be put on
a sub list and will be contacted. The number of tables
is NOT limited as long as there are 4 people for each.
Having complete tables makes playing bridge so
much more fun and challenging. We can keep score
properly which helps our bidding skills. Consider
joining us on Monday afternoons.
.
The meeting will be on September 27th at the
Annapolis Regional Library, 1410 West Street,
Annapolis, MD 21401. The book is Alexander
Hamilton by Ron Chernow. The book was a #1 New
York Times bestseller and was chosen by the Times as
one of the 10 best books of the year. It was the
inspiration for the wildly popular Broadway musical.
In addition to discussing the book we will talk about
how participants would like the Interest Group to
operate.

BRIDGE – INTERMEDIATE (1st Tuesday)
from the beginning of April to the end of October, at
the Bay Hills Golf Course in Arnold, MD. We have
room for as many as 12 players, and are happy to
expand. Members will be notified by e-mail every
Sunday of the scheduled tee times for the following
Thursday. Members respond by “reply all” with their
intentions to play. We meet a half hour earlier than
the first tee time to pay up and sort ourselves into
foursomes. That way the starters still like us a lot. If
we are having a lousy hole, we pick up after our score
reaches double par, in the interest of keeping the
game moving. That way the people who are playing
behind us (often grumpy old men) still like us a lot,
too. We ante up $2 and the gal who has the least
number of putts, as well as the gal who has the most
number of drives that land in the freeway get to split
the pot. Great for both those who had a decent long
game, and for those whose short game is their strong
point. AND we have a golfing gals’ year-round
monthly happy hour every third Tuesday of the
month. We are always happy to welcome new
members. Call or e-mail either of the co-chairs to
join.

This is a social bridge game for Intermediate players.
Many enjoy lunch at Café Mezzanotte before bridge
begins. We play bridge where partners change after
every four hands. Each month an invitation is sent via
Evite to determine who will play. You also can
respond by email or phone. Tables are filled on a
first-come basis. If tables are full, you will be placed
on the list of substitutes for that month. Check with us
to make sure your name is on the Evite list and feel
free to contact us with any questions.

Great Decisions is a non-partisan, world affairs
discussion group focused on U.S. foreign policy
interests. The program was developed by the Foreign
Policy Association to provide its members
background information and analysis on foreign
policy issues. Each month members read assignments
from the Great Decisions briefing book, which are
then discussed at the monthly meetings.
This is a casual and fun get together of our
members. We meet at noon on the fourth Thursday of
each month at the home of a generous hostess. The
hostess and co-hostess team select a theme with the
menu and ask all guests to contribute to the buffet
based on the theme. Members receive a monthly
email invitation with the luncheon theme, types of
food requested to match the theme, location and the
email of the hostess for RSVPs. Please reply by the
deadline the hostess defines.
As a group we also watch documentaries on thoughtprovoking foreign policy challenges facing America.
Our goal is to develop awareness, understanding, and
informed opinions on U.S. foreign policy and global
issues. Location of monthly meeting is at the home of
Sue Jacobson, Baywoods, 7101 Bay Front Drive,
Annapolis, MD 21403, Unit #200. Snacks are
provided by attendees. OUR FIRST MEETING
WILL BE FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2016. RSVP to
Sue Jacobson. For more information please contact
Interest Group Coordinator, Judy Harrison.
Fun Lunch members are encouraged to host or cohost once every two or three years and in truth that is
only fair. There are several months open for hostess
duties. Please contact Tessie if you would like to
volunteer your home and/or co-hostess talents. Some
enduring friendships are formed over the kitchen sink.
There will be a sign-up sheet at the September
meeting for those wanting to join Fun Lunch. Or

needlework group meetings every first and third
Thursday mornings, all twelve months of the
year. We meet at each other’s houses from 9:30 am
to noon. The hostess for that meeting provides finger
food and drinks (because that’s what all NA interest
groups are really all about). Mostly the meetings are
about having free access to therapeutic analysis, and
to kibitz, talk, gossip, and solve all the world’s
problems.
This is very relaxing and a great way to step out of
the hustle bustle of our busy lives. If you would like
to join us, notify Barbara Jaffe. If you are already a
member, we are meeting at Janette Jha’s house on
September 1st and TC Magnotti’s on the

Our first meeting of the year will be on Monday,
September 12th at the home of Susann Felton.
Please RSVP directly to Susann.Our prompt is,
“a little white lie.”
The tennis group meets on Mondays at the Brigade
Sports Complex, 64 Greenbury Point Rd, Annapolis,
MD 21402. During the spring and fall, we play
outdoors from 9:30 am to 11 am. In the summer, we
play from 8:00 am to 9:30 am to beat the heat. In the
winter we play indoors at 8:00 am, 9:30 am and/or 2
pm.
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.
When we play outdoors, there is no limit to the
number of players. When we play indoors, it is a
maximum of 4 players per court.
We accept all levels of players but ask that you have
experience, as we do not give lessons. The majority of
us play at the 3.0 to 3.5 level.
Although this is a great way to renew your interest in
writing, or further develop your writing skills, the
focus is not on writing style or expertise. There is no
critiquing of the writing, only sharing with supportive
friends. You are not required to write a paper on your
first visit. Contact Stephanie for meeting specifics
and/or to be placed on our email list.
The BSC charges us to use their courts. We share the
cost of the courts among all the players, but guests
(those who are not AP’s) pay an additional guest fee
of $7. Please arrive for play 15 minutes early so we
can calculate who owes what amount to the BGS.
We use SignUpGenius.com to coordinate. For indoor
play, it is first-come, first-serve. We will send out
notices for signing up a month ahead of time.
If you want to join our group, contact Maryann
Gosnell.

WOMEN ON WATER (WOW)
This is a lively group of women, many of whom are
native speakers of Spanish. Others are married to
native speakers of Spanish, have lived in Spanish
speaking countries for several years or want to refresh
their language skills. We meet for lunch at local
Latin American restaurants to enjoy each other’s
company and to speak Spanish. Once on the mailing
list, you will be notified of future get togethers.

Women on Water is a group of savvy sailors who
would like to get together for day sails May through
October. If you have a sailboat, we welcome you as a
WOW skipper; if you are an experienced sailor, join
us as crew.
Many thanks to Lorraine Fassett and Ginger De Luca
for guiding our ship so well for the last two years!
Currently we are looking for skippers to join us, as we
have lots of crew, but sadly no boats at this time. New
10
members are welcome whether they come with a boat
or not!
