Fall Care Packages, Ice Skating in Bryant Park, 2019 Holiday Party and More

October 29, 2019
It's a spooky time of year, but there's no need to be scared. The Smith Club has your back. Make sure to mark your calendars and sign up in advance for these exciting activities. 

Admission Volunteers
The Club's Admission Committee welcomes volunteers interested in conducting alumnae interviews with current Smith applicants. This is a great way to get involved and meet potential future Smithies. Training and materials will be provided. Contact admission@SmithClubNYC.org to volunteer or for more information. 
Parent & Children Event Survey
The Club’s Events Committee is brainstorming the best way to host an event for Smithie parents and their children. The idea is to plan a Saturday morning activity that’s fun and educational for the children and allows the parents to socialize with each other. The committee is currently reaching out to different venues—including the Children's Museum of Arts, Lincoln Center, and the New Victory Theaterto see what options are available. Please complete this brief survey to help us understand your interests and to generate more ideas.
