Empty Nesters

Is your nest finally empty?  Do you have some spare time to have fun?
Empty Nesters is a group for women. We either don't have children or ours have already graduated from high school.  When you are new to the area and you do not have children at home, it is sometimes harder to meet new people. Our group has been considered a 'life saver' to many empty nesters who have moved to The Andovers.

Meets third Thursday of every month at 10:00am
Socialize and plan upcoming activities.

Book club - Bunco - Potluck Dinners - Women's Discussion - Specialty Tea Group - Couples Dinners - Museum Trips - Art Shows - And more!

Empty Nester Coffee
  (Please remember to carpool)

The Empty Nesters are off and running this fall with a variety of planned activities along with active participation in the interest groups that meet monthly. On September 5th a lovely afternoon cocktail party was held at the home of Carol Ann Morse. Those in attendance all enjoyed the delightful weather, the scrumptious appetizers and desserts, and of course the wine and conversation. At the September 18th coffee many commented on the very enjoyable excursion to the Beaumont Mansion in Gloucester, followed by lunch at the Seaport Grill. Aside from a surprise encounter with a wild turkey upon arrival, which ended well, it was a very pleasant day out.

A luncheon outing to the Wenham Tea House is planned for October. It is always a treat to go the Wenham Tea House where the food and the bellinis are always top-notch. Plans are also in place for the annual holiday tea which will be held at a member's home this year in early December.

About twenty members have joined a new interest group, Love of Learning, which promises to be a very exciting addition to the monthly activities. The first meeting will be held soon and ideas and plans will soon evolve to include presentations by members of the group reflecting their areas of expertise and outings to places of interest to the group.

Members contributed pantry items to Lazarus House following our September coffee. In addition the Nesters will continue to support various local charities during this year's holiday season. We are a busy group for sure.
