"90 & Better!"

A new NKA feature is the "90 & Better" club, an idea proposed by JoAn Dilweg. Brief biographies of NKA members who have achieved the age of 90 (or better) have been collected and submitted by Jane Riley. 

"90 & Better" members are feted each year at a special birthday party. 
As more NKA members join the club, their biographies will be added to this blog.

Annual End-of-Year Meeting

This NKA year culminated in an annual meeting combined with a picnic, play-day, and party. Pocatello's historic Meridell Park was the venue. 
 
 Attendees socialized before the meeting.
 President Audrey Cole (below) summarized the accomplishments of her 2015-2016 tenure.
Class show-and-tell displays included a Readers Theater outdoor presentation of a play written by Jim Mariani titled, "Human Chess Match"...
...belly dancing...
...a line-dance performance...
...barn quilts, alcohol-ink tiles, and projects from the knit & crochet class. 
A special feature was a birthday celebration of our "90 and Better" members.*
