January – February 2017 Newsletter


President’s  Message                                                                             Russ Levere


I hope all Regents enjoy a happy Christmas and Hanukkah, and may 2017 be an excellent

year for all!


Sadly, the holiday party was cancelled due to low turnout, and my hope for 2017 is that more

Regents will help with the operation of the Regents–we still need help in the kitchen for January–

any volunteers?


Our program director and V.P. Mark Shapiro has scheduled great speakers for us–please help

out by suggesting speakers or topics to help him with a difficult job. Your Regents experience

will be enhanced by your participation–Please Volunteer!


Some of the Regents will head south for part of the winter, be assured that you will be in our

thoughts as we watch Connecticut weather reports which will probably include snow, ice, sleet,

cold winds, or all of the above. Stay warm, be careful, and have an enjoyable start to 2017!
