Welcome to October
Nice to see you!

I find October to be a hopeful month—feeling that better weather is approaching and we can be outside without the extreme heat.  
What do you love about October?  Anything on this list?
  • Octoberfest…Encore is having one on October 15
  • Everything pumpkin
  • Fall décor 
  • Fall coffee mugs
  • Football in full swing
  • Return of our northern friends!
I personally love everything pumpkin but, have my fill by Thanksgiving.  Fall décor and fall coffee mugs are high on my list, too.
Encore has many activities in October to keep you busy! Here are a few highlights.
  • October Luncheon 
    • October's Luncheon will held on October 19 at the West Bay Club. Our speaker will be Steve SarkozyEstero Village Manager. His yearly visit is always a favorite as he updates us on Estero happenings. 
  • For the Love of Chocolate SocialOctober 29 
  • Woman-to-Woman and Brunch Last events for 2023—October
  • Voting—2024 Officers
    • The proposed slate of officers can be found in the newsletter, and we will vote at the October meeting. Thanks to the women who agreed to be nominated.  Read more about them in the newsletter.
  •  Holiday Giving Tree
    • Generosity has been part of our annual theme and our Mission Statement. Our membership has shown generosity time and again. This year we are introducing the Holiday Giving Tree for children served by Guardian Ad Litem. See the newsletter for details. 
  • Holiday Party
    • Be sure to save the date, December 3, for our annual Holiday Party
  • November Raffle 
    • Have you planned a gift basket with friends for our November raffle supporting our scholarship fund? You’ll find ideas in the newsletter to get you started.
Finally, as we rush into the holiday season remember to practice a bit of self-care. Here’s an October list of ideas…

Enjoy your month! 
I hope to see you at the luncheon and other events in October.

Estero Encore Club Mission and Implementation
The Estero Encore Club was established in 2010 for women who have completed 4 years as members of the Estero Newcomers Club. Our mission is to continue to provide opportunities to develop friendships, enjoy planned activities, learn more about our community, and offer ways to give back to that community.
Mission Implementation
The responsibility of the Estero Encore Club Board (EECB) is to support the sitting President and the other elected members of the Executive Board who all serve as members of the EECB. As part of that responsibility, the EECB  serves as ambassadors of the club. The EECB represents the total membership, and the EECB's function is to consider the suggestions of all members, by reaching a consensus when jointly making decisions based upon the Estero Encore Club’s mission statement and supporting the good of the entire organization.
