The virtual programs researched and set up by TTN have been a blessing during this time and truly changed my life.

TTN has done an unbelievable job providing us with wonderful zoom programs!!  It definitely gives us something to look forward to during these difficult days.  Thank you, Lindsay, and to all the people  “behind the scenes” who  put all these programs in place!

I honestly can't imagine the past few months without TTN!

I just want to say ‘thank you’ for all of the work being done to keep me connected. Because I live alone, the TTN events are especially appreciated.

Thank you for the sanity that you have provided during these difficult times. TTN has really been one of the heroes for our mental and physical well being.

All these new SIG groups are helping to alleviate my fears and anxieties, as I meet wonderful new women from the comfort of my home. Looking forward to the laughter.

   "This was a gorgeous setting and a wonderful afternoon that was organized for us. I truly appreciated all the work that went into planning this. I loved it...and the food was great. 
  "Guest speaker from walking tour company really great. Very interesting speaker. Loved the Mansion, very elegant. Would love more events like this. The women's chorus lovely too. Great job with this one! Thank you."
  "I really enjoyed the day. I felt the chorus was fabulous! I also enjoyed the speaker, he was extremely knowledge. I wish he would set up a laptop with a screen to present a slide show rather than handouts. It took away from the presentation and was distracting. The food was good, not great (which is what you expect when it is buffet style) but they could have simply set up coffee and tea and let everyone help themselves instead of bring 3 cups at a time. The workers were extremely nice and accommodating! Overall a very nice day and will attend more luncheons!" 

"Maryann was a very engaging speaker. She was well prepared with her ingredients and presentation of her food demo. Perfect event from The Health & Wellness Committee. Can’t wait to start cooking.. Thank you!"
  "MaryAnn Jones is a wonderful soul who shares a wealth of ease and expertise with eating seasonally. I enjoyed both her presentation and tips for preparing these tasty roots. Thank you, Caron"
    "Very interesting and learned some important cooking tips. Please consider having her back in the future. Thanks for all your time in arranging this zoom. Kris"

"Thank you! It was wonderful to learn about the different and new options available to treat this challenging disease. Dr. Park was a wonderful, relevant and clear presenter. Thank you to Sue Neville and Annette for the gifts of the most current research!"
  "Very useful information presented. Learnt a lot about the different types of breast cancer and the available treatments and ongoing studies. Thank you."
  "Excellent information interestingly presented."

Mah Jongg Tournament
"Great event. So nice to spend an afternoon outside with friends."
"Had a great afternoon. Would love more events under the tent even if I have to wear my long johns!!!!"
"This was my first ever Mahjongg Tournament. Claudia did a great job organizing it and explaining all the rules. It was a fun event for everyone. Can't wait to do it again. :)"
"I thought the event was well planned and well run. I was a bit nervous going in to this tournament as friends of mine said that ladies that usually participate in this are very serious and very good players. Being new to Maj Jungg ( have only played a few years) I was fearful I would be embarrassed by my lack of experience and slowness. Quite the opposite. Everyone was very friendly , some ladies were slower than I and I actually did well!"  
"Great afternoon! A nice way to meet other members!"

"Keep offering Victoria"
"Excellent as before. I worked out with recorded version, thanks for providing it."
"Enjoy the fitness class very much."

  "Presenter was very knowledgeable and presented the information in a concise manner"
  "The presenter was well prepared and engaging. I appreciated her research and the illustrations were very helpful. Thank you to The Health & Wellness Committee for another wonderful program of Seasons of Self-Care."

Equal Means Equal

                                          Comments from our Members

"An eye opening video/conversation touching on different aspects of how women are still unequal in the eyes of the laws that we thought gave us equality. Wonderful presentation."
  "Extremely informative and illuminating. Aside from the obvious wage inequalities, many other facets of life impacted by lack of equal protection under the law for women were explored."
  "Very good film.  Time should have been included for recent updates and discussion."

                    Comments from our Members

"As we go through the aging process- we have a tendency to forget things said. I found Victoria’s session to be so very helpful and very enjoyable. It was enlightening and never boring. Kudos  to Victoria for a very interesting topic."

"Very informative. Raised my awareness for some women specific heart health issue signs. Thanks."

 "Dr. Schwarzwald pulled no punches. He was very engaging and his presentation was on target. I really appreciated hearing about the statistics and medical facts that were very specific to women. He really sharpened our awareness about heart health. Kudos to the Health & Wellness Committee for a wonderful Valentine's Day gift!"

 "Very informative! Doctor was knowledgeable and very reassuring. Made me aware that women must be advocates for their own health."

 "Dr Schwarzwald did a great job of helping women understand the statistics, importance of heart health, symptoms, and gender differences in evaluating CVD. Great presentation"

"The information and presentation about this important subject was very well done. As a native Long Islander I really enjoyed learning more and the exciting fact that a Street in my neighborhood is named for one of the underground families. Thank you. "

   "It could have been longer since she had so much more material. Great idea for a future bus trip to visit the sites with guide."

  "I found this presentation extremely interesting...seeing sites from this area and the role they played in the Underground Railroad. I thought the speaker was wonderful and interesting and I bought the speaker's book to read as well. Thank you for organizing this."
