Happy September to all.  You know fall is here because the school busses are rolling again and there are some trees that are turning colors already.  I like the fall colors but we all know what kind of weather follows fall !!!!
Farmingbury Woman's Club started our 2008/2009 season in great fashion on Sept. 2nd.  Our most recent HOBY representative was not available, but Megan Renner, our 2004 rep. came from college in New Jersey to speak to us.  She is still very enthusiastic about HOBY and had many pieces of memorabilia with her to show us.
Sept. 4th was our new president, Pat Pytka's, first official meeting.  She had several board of director meetings during the summer to get her feet wet, and she did a good job.  There were many things and events to discuss:  membership tea, Busy Bees, breast cancer awareness month and our international dinner.  Our annual Membership Tea, hosted by Lois Pecka, will be held on Sept. 17th, 7:00 at St. Maria Goretti's Church hall.  Several invitations have been sent out and we are looking forward to our "old" members being there to meet our "new" members.  The Busy Bees will meet again on Sept. 22 at 1:00 at the Wolcott Library.  The bees didn't do much buzzing during the summer and we are eager to start up again.  Lucille Garrigus and Carole Mueller will be decorating the doors of all the residents at Wolcott View Manor this coming week.
On October 1st, our annual breast cancer awareness ceremony will be held on Wolcott Green starting at 1:00.  Mary Kelly is in charge this year and most of the preparations are almost finalized.  We meet at the gazebo on the green, put pink ribbons on our white Christmas tree, raise the cancer awareness flag and then go into Town Hall where Mayor Dunn hangs a wreath.   The annual International Dinner will be on Oct. 7th, 6:30 at St. Maria Goretti's Church hall.  Joan Dolan and Joan Lawrence are hostesses and we plan on having teachers from China as our speakers and of course some very delicious food.
