November Luncheon
Thursday, December 7, 2017

“Do You Hear What I Hear?”

Be sure to come to the December Luncheon and enjoy the company of NDN friends and the inimitable Mary Notes ushering in the holiday season. From the theme song, “Do You Hear What I Hear?,” to the brand new “Peace Song”, you are sure to love the musical choices.

Mary Notes will present traditional Christmas songs as well as some new ones. This year they are singing a new spirited and joyful Hannukah song plus the beautiful Appalachian carol “I Wonder as I Wander”, with harp accompaniment.

You’ll enjoy a delicious sit-down luncheon in beautiful surroundings. Bring that special friend along. Come at 11:00 AM to socialize as usual and don’t arrive too late! Please find your place quickly. The Mary Notes will sing before the luncheon is served.

For inquiries call Kathy Manley: 314-239-1215 or email

Message from the President

As I think about the holiday season and look forward to the new year, I am so grateful that North Dallas Newcomers and Friends has been a big part of my life. The friendship that you extend to fellow members and to those in need brings happiness in good times and bad.

My wish for you is that the joy of this beautiful season be felt throughout the new year. Each one of you deserves all the goodness and goodwill that this special season brings.

In the spirit of the holidays we are once again sharing with those less fortunate by contributing to the Network of Christian Ministries. Marilyn Boyd will be collecting cash or checks, and nonperishable food items at our luncheon on December 7th. Please contact Marilyn at 972-231-5742 or 214-564-3839 (cell) if you have questions about a contribution.

I am looking forward to seeing you at our luncheon and enjoying the beautiful seasonal program presented by the Mary Notes.

Blessings, love, and peace to you,

Linda Stagner

NDN President 2017-18

My husband and I retired in 2010 and moved to Frisco to be near our sons. After a few months I longed to make some new friends. I laughingly told my husband that at our age no one comes to the front door and asks if you want to play. I looked on-line at newcomer groups in the area. I was a bit hesitant at first but decided to send in my money and information sheet to North Dallas Newcomers and Friends. A few days later I received a phone call about Mary Notes, our singing group. After one practice I was hooked. Through the many activities offered I have met so many fun and interesting ladies and also learned so much about north Texas. I am so glad I made the decision to join. – Suzi Ingram, Frisco
