Welcome to the UCONN League

The object of the UConn League is to promote social and friendly relations within, and to provide worthwhile services to the University and community.

The UConn League charges a nominal fee for membership. Anyone who is part of the UConn community or lives in the surrounding towns is welcome to join.

Members are then eligible to participate in any of the interest groups.  There are two lunch meetings with a speaker per year for UConn League members: one in the Fall and one in the Spring. A membership directory is issued in the Fall so please fill out membership-form (PDF file which requires adobe reader. )

The Spring 2020 Notebook is being sent (post or email) to Members of the UConn League.

President’s Message

PRESIDENTS MESSAGE

Dear Fellow League Members,

I want to thank everyone that decided to remain a member this past year.  You’ve been amazingly creative in keeping in touch and using new technology to support each other. That is what our organization is all about and I am so proud of you.

For those members that have been directly affected by the Covid-19 through themselves or family and friends, I am deeply sorry.

We think that we may be seeing the end of the tunnel.  The mah jongg group has restarted on a limited basis.  The walking group is resuming their walks in May and the golf group will be starting soon.  Of course the book group, play readers and fitness groups have all been active through Zoom.

This is my last President’s Message.  It has been an interesting if not challenging term.  I am glad that I will be able to address you in person in our belated Spring Luncheon in June.  I want to thank my Board for their service to the group.  We couldn’t have a UCONN League without everyone’s help.

Please seriously think about attending the spring luncheon/meeting if you have received your vaccine and are comfortable.  As a courtesy, please wear a mask when you are not eating.  If you are still hesitant about socializing, we completely understand.   I am looking forward to seeing many of you as our interest groups resume their normal schedules.

Sincerely,

Claire Gates
