ENN adds a "Singles List"

Written by Staff Editor on .

Evergreen Newcomers and Neighbors has announced a new activity group – Singles List! It’s for those who might like to find someone with whom he or she might attend an ENN function or have a reason for two people to converse who’ve not yet met each other. There are plenty of ENN members who have been hesitant to attend events because they are single. Now there’s a reason to get out there for that very reason.

The group is not limited to singles, but it’s especially meant to encourage participation by those who are not in a partnership or marriage. They can be assured they won’t be the “only” one at this event without a partner. Contact Darlene Melton at 708-846-0599 or Jane Stewart at 303-953-8291 with questions or to ask about becoming a member of ENN.

Evergreen Newcomers welcomes new members

Written by Staff Editor on .

Of all the many activity groups available to members of Evergreen Newcomers & Neighbors, here are two excerpts from the February newsletter that may just pique your interest:

WAG (Women Aging Gracefully) This group meets on the 4th Monday each month at 10:00 a.m. in volunteer host homes for a snack and programs or speakers on topics of interest to women. Carpooling is available. This group of 12+ women have lively discussions (held confidential) and enjoy having fun!  Come for a visit and see for yourself. Game parties and events are held three times per year. Each month one person presents a mini biography of herself and friendships form from there. WAG is open to all ENN women. Simone Simpson will present a Healthy Eating/ Diabetic Foods Demonstration on February 27th.

Motorcycles – Our area is LOADED with great motorcycling roads, and fantastic destinations. Sometimes we just need an excuse to go ride, so Jet's get together and enjoy the passion of riding with those who share that passion. Every biker has favorite roads m1d destinations, and this is an opportunity to share those with others, and to discover new favorites. We can do regular day rides, interspersed with overnight/weekend rides to places too far for a single day. There are lots of places to go see, things to do, and food to eat in or near Colorado, so let's go see them and do them on our bikes/trikes. All makes, models, skill levels are encouraged. Contact the leader for more information. Is it the destination or the journey? Does it matter?

ENN celebrates the contributions of Darla Schwartz

Written by Staff Editor on .

Members of Evergreen Newcomers and Neighbors showed their appreciation to Darla Schwartz at a recent Happy Hour at The Wild Game.  Darla has coordinated the "Serindipity" committee for a few years now, planning four to six outings for ENN members each month.  From breakfasts to touring museums, she's ensured a wide variety of well-attended activities.  Darla and her husband, Ben, have moved down the hill into a retirement community, so she's turning over the reins to several new somebodies to chair sub-groups.

Darla created the Serendipity leg of ENN many years ago.  She says she was part of Newcomers for 18 or 19 of the 20 years she lived in Evergreen.  One of her favorite activities happened around Halloween when members would travel to the Columbia Cemetery in Boulder for a Banjo Billy Bus Tour.  People in costume would act the part of the famous and colorful people buried there; "Meet the Spirits" was the name of the biennial event.

ENN has approximately 30 activity groups – something for everyone.  The group is a nice mix of people who have lived in Evergreen for a long time and those who are truly "newcomers."  For more information about becoming a member, click here.
