PCNY Member Experience Spring 2020

AROUND THE CLUB

FROM THE PRESIDENT

Dear Members, Hope everyone had a great start to the new decade with family and friends. Our always popular Members’ Holiday Bash and Inter-Club Snow Ball were both wonderful evenings, as members and guests celebrated with delicious food, cocktails and dancing. The Club looks forward to welcoming all family and friends for an Inter-Club First Night Passover Seder on April 8 and our Easter celebration on April 12. Lastly, on Mother’s Day, May 10, we will once again delight and entertain Mom in style at our annual Mother’s Day Brunch. As we put away the winter coats and blankets, the Programs Committee has created an exciting lineup of events this season to get you out and about. On March 6, enjoy a special evening of virtuoso concertos performed by the American Classical Orchestra, NewYork’s leading period instrument orchestra, followed by a post-concert meet-and-greet-reception.The Club welcomes food historian Francine Segan on April 1, as she explores the Emilia-Romagna region, Italy’s “Food and Motor Valley.” She will be joined by Dino Barri of Eataly and Dr. Frank Celenza, race car driver and sportscar historian.The excitement continues as Christie’s brings Shakespeare’s First Folio, estimated to capture $4-$6 million in auction, for a private viewing, discussion, and dramatic readings by stage actors of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre of London. In celebration of Asian Heritage Month in May, the Club has the privilege of hosting renowned Tony Award-winning playwright David Henry Hwang on May 6, as he addresses issues of diversity in the entertainment industry. PCNY is proud to continue its role as host of the 2020 Princeton Prize in Race Relations.This ceremony honors today’s young leaders in the NewYork City area who are improving race relations in their schools and communities. Join us as we support and congratulate these high school students on May 11. Don’t forget that networking and opportunities to socialize abound for members all year round, from the wine receptions at all our programs, to the Young Alumni, Gen X, and Seniors Socials at the Bar & Grill on Fridays, and special interest groups, you’re sure to find something that’s right for you (see page 14 for details.) As we slide into spring and nicer weather, I hope to see you under the tents at Reunions Weekend on May 28 – May 31, and if not there, then surely around the Club. Cheers,
