Season's Greetings from the
New York Wellesley Club


Happy Holidays from the New York Wellesley Club! This fall has been exciting

 for the NYWC. Nearly 160 alumnae have joined as dues-paying members,

compared with 108 members during the 2010-11 year. We are very close to

 meeting our goal of growing to 200 members this year.


On Wednesday, December 7, over 100 alumnae from the classes of 1956 to

 2011 gathered at the home of Alice Yurke '84 for the annual holiday party.

 The party was a wonderful opportunity for alumnae to network and share

memories of their time at Wellesley. To view more photos of this event,

 visit the NYWC Facebook page.

This holiday season, we hope you will consider

joining the New York Wellesley Club. Membership dues help us offer free

events that strengthen the NYC alumnae community. Wondering whether

your membership is current? Visit the NYWC web site or email Brooke Bryant,

 Membership Chair (mailto:[email protected]?subject=NYWC%20Membership).

On behalf of the NYWC, thanks for your support and involvement! Our

 best wishes for a happy and peaceful holiday season.
