Encore Club picks officers

The Encore Club has elected its officers for 2016-2017.

The president for this coming season is Nancy Helmig. After considerable experience in the club, she is ready for a full year of service. Her vice president will be Maryann Grierson, of Ridgefield, who has served as president in the past. Gale Roeder will serve as secretary, Karen Birck will be the treasurer and the newsletter, which comes out monthly, will be edited by Gail Nielson.

Everyone in the club is looking forward to the events that will be featured in the coming season and monthly group meetings. A few of the usual activities conducted during the year include: a book discussion, bridge, chick flick (going to dinner and then to a current movie), monthly coffees at member’s  homes, evening socials, a holiday party in December, an International group that learns about various countries members have recently visited, the Lunch Bunch that goes to a different restaurant each month, mah jongg, trips to the New York City Ballet, another opportunity to go to New York City for something very special, loft hopping to visit various artists in the area, a summer tea party, theater trips, and finally but not limited to monthly, walking outings along the local trails in Wilton and beyond.

Membership is open to women of Wilton and many other surrounding towns.
