After careful consideration, the Board of GNYOS has made the very difficult decision to begin the process of dissolving the Society. It is unfortunate that the ongoing drops in membership and participation made this an inevitability.
Therefore the upcoming December holiday gathering will be our last time all together as members of GNYOS. Because of all the friendships and memories we share, we hope many of you will be able to attend our Celebration of GNYOS.
There will be a catered dinner and desserts, and plenty of opportunity to talk and reminisce. While there will be no cost for the food, should you want something stronger than coffee or soda, there will be a cash bar, so come prepared! We do need a firm count to order the food so please let Marilyn know by December 2 if you are able to join us.
We also want to figure out ways we can stay in touch. GNYOS was for many years a way for people to meet others outside of their "home" society. We will have a "Friends of GNYOS" Google Group set up for online communication, and will keep up the Facebook page (and perhaps even the website) as an archive of Society history.
There is only street parking at the Manhem Club
The BxM9 Express Bus from Manhattan stops at the corner of Randall Av & Throgs Neck Expressway -- the club is 3-1/2 blocks down Randall Ave and a right turn onto Clarence Ave.
Return trip even easier -- the pickup corner is Clarence Ave & Randall Ave. (Buses run once an hour on the hour until 11pm.)
