NeW Ideas for Fall Events

September 2, 2009 | NeW Staff

Happy Fall!

Fall is the perfect time to host a social event and welcome new and old NeW members to NeW.  Here are some highlights from chapter leaders to get you excited about a NeW fall.

Apple Picking at UVA. Kathleen Bracken, former President, says, “NeW at UVA goes apple picking every fall, and this has been one of the highlights of the social events we do. It gives our members an opportunity to get to know each other outside of our meetings and enjoy the crisp fall weather in the process!”

Tea Party at UF.  Rachel Kopec, current President, says, “NeW at UF hosted a tea party last year, and we plan to do it again this year. Our members dressed up in sundresses, hats, and pearls, enjoyed a traditional tea, and played tea trivia games. It was an old-fashioned good time, and our members loved getting the opportunity to celebrate being feminine!”

Nerf Gun Advertising and Range Night at ASU. Blayne Bennett, current President, says, “We did something different this year when we organized our NeW table at the Student Activities Fair.  We had a target set up and girls could shoot a Nerf gun in order to win a great conservative book.  And we painted the gun pink too! We used to advertise our first social event of the year, Ladies’ Night at the Range.”

Take notes from these NeW leaders, only a few of the many great fall memories NeW chapters have had.  If you want more information, feel free to contact [email protected] for help, ideas, and resources for your own great event!
