Though our beloved Pats didn't win, the Sundowners had a great time cheering on the team!
Thanks to all who attended and our gracious hosts.
Volunteer Outreach had a very successful clothing drive in January. Thank you to those who donated items to the Plymouth Area Coalition for the Homeless. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!! Thanks also goes out to Orangetheory Fitness in Kingston for volunteering their space for the drop off!
Here is just a portion of the clothes that were donated -- and just in time as the Coalition recently lost a great deal of inventory due to a flood.
Thank you to all who participated!
Interested in book club, but need a little longer to tackle that book? Or prefer to join when it's a book you've already read? (Guilty!)

Wonder- R.J. Palacio (March)
A Man Called Ove- Frederick Backman (April)

Volunteer Outreach will be working with Carolina Hill Shelter in Marshfield, to organize Christmas donations for homeless children and families.
At the Adult Social Chili Cookoff, there was a “gift tree” available. Newcomers choose a gift tag from the tree with an item listed, that can be purchased for a Carolina Hill child or family in need. Donations will be collected until December 12th.
If you were unable to attend this event, that's okay! The tree will be traveling to the Ladies Night Out event on November 21st for the Thanksgiving Floral Arrangement.
Unwrapped Donations can be dropped off to Jessica Kreiser's house at 225 Church St. There will be a tote outside labeled Duxbury Newcomers. Please call for any issues 860-558-5239.
Thank you in advance for any donations and helping out these local families in need! For more information about the Carolina Hill Shelter please visit the website http://www.carolinahill.org/
