A social organization serving women in the
Lake of the Ozarks area
Newcomers / Longtimers
Newcomers/Longtimers is an organization composed of    
women from all over the lake region with a membership          
averaging  approximately 250 women. There are many fun      
activities that have been added to our calendar that will         
allow you to meet and interact with other members.

We are not only a social organization but a charitable one as
well. Our annual home tour is our biggest undertaking. The
money raised is given back to local lake charities and awarded
as scholarships to students attending local colleges and      
technical schools.

Please come and join us. We look forward to meeting you and
introducing you to other women who may become your       
lifelong friends.

iGive” donates to chosen
organizations through on-line

N/L has always sought new and
innovative ways to enable the
group to better accomplish its
mission over the years.  Recently,
members of the N/L board signed
up for “iGive,” an organization
that arranges for merchants
(currently more than 1,700) to
donate to specified organizations
on behalf of individuals that
purchase their products and
services.  It costs nothing, you
simply shop with one of the
participating merchants and they
donate an average of 3% to your
designated organization. Again,
you will spend nothing extra - in
fact you'll often save money with
exclusive coupons, free shipping
specials, and sales only available
for iGive members. It's simple, it's
free, and it's fast.

We encourage you to consider
this opportunity as you do your
on-line shopping.  Simply sign up
iGive.com, specify Newcomers/
Longtimers as the organization
you wish to support, then return
to iGive.com when you are ready
to shop,   search for your favorite
store (or we recommend
downloading their icon to your
computer, making it even
easier!), click on the link, then
shop away!  The donations are
made automatically to your
specified cause.

Meet the Author Life in a Jar: The Irena Sendler Project

During World War II, Irena Sendler, a Polish Catholic social worker, organized a rescue network of
fellow social workers to save 2,500 Jewish children from certain death in the Warsaw ghetto.
Incredibly, after the war her                                                                               heroism, like that of many others,
was suppressed by communist                                                                          Poland and remained virtually
unknown for 60 years. Unknown,                                                                      that is, until three high school girls
from an economically depressed,                                                                       rural school district in southeast
Kansas stumbled upon a                                                                                        tantalizing reference to Sendler's
rescues, which they fashioned                                                                             into a history project, a play they
called Life in a Jar. Their innocent                                                                      drama was first seen in Kansas,
then the Midwest, then New York,                                                                     Los Angeles, Montreal, and finally
Poland, where they elevated                                                                                Irena Sendler to a national hero,
championing her legacy of                                                                                     tolerance and respect for all
people. Life in a Jar: The Irena                                                                             Sendler Project is a Holocaust
history and more. It is the                                                                                     inspirational story of Protestant
students from Kansas, each                                                                                  carrying her own painful burden,
each called in her own complex                                                                          way to the history of a Catholic
woman who knocked on Jewish                                                                          doors in the Warsaw ghetto and, in
Sendler's own words, "tried to                                                                            talk the mothers out of their
children." Inspired by Irena                                                                                Sendler, they are living examples
of the power of one person to change the world and models for young people everywhere.

60% of the sales of this book are donated to the Irena Sendler/Life in a Jar Foundation. The foundation
promotes Irena Sendler's legacy and encourages educators and students to emulate the project by
focusing on unsung heroes in history to teach respect and understanding among all people, regardless
of race, religion, or creed.
