I would like to extend a welcome to our newest members. We’re happy to have you join us as we collectively volunteer within our community. Tennis Serves Others is planning some great events coming up in November and December. On November 21st at Laguna Niguel Racquet Club, we will have a ladies round robin benefitting Families Forward. This non-profit organization is committed to helping Orange County families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. In 1984, they started with five rented apartments and have now expanded to hundreds of families regaining their economic independence and finding stable homes for 

their children. In December, we will organize Adopt-a-Family with our mem-bers for the upcoming holiday. We will also be working with member Julie Bacino to prepare “goody bags” for the seniors in our community. Please make sure to attend our membership meeting December 8th, 5:30 pm at LNRC. Along with celebrating the holiday season we will hear from several beneficiaries. As a member you will have the opportunity to vote on which beneficiary we will support for our Grand Gala Event in May 2017, so it’s very important to be in attendance. We look forward to seeing you there.
