The Transition Network's 10th Annual Dinner
It's that time again! Time for all Transition Network women to gather at our wonderful Annual Dinner to be held at Josephina's Restaurant on July 21st. If you’ve attended before, you’ll know what a festive and collegial evening this is,in a first-rate venue with friendly and attentive service for TTNers.
If you haven’t attended before, you are in for a treat. It’s one of the two sparkling Annual New York TTN gatherings. A great place to meet up with and socialize with old friends, meet new ones, and take part in our famous Pride of Age celebration of Members with “significant” birthdays this year (55, 60, 65, 70, 75...) in 2011.
Also, you’ll hear a bit about the expansion of the TTN Community, new chapters across the US, the recognition being shown of the TTN mission and model, and up-to-date news on the National Conference in Washington in November – all in a convivial setting.
Special features are a lovely menu with lots of good choices – and unlimited wine for the evening!
