FOC Newsletter, President's Letter,  Summer 2023

Greetings Friends!

So many activities took place this spring at Connetquot that the time just flew by! We've included our favorite stories in this newsletter, and we hope you enjoy reading.

Summer is upon us. Connetquot Preserve slows down as the temperature heats up. When the Preserve becomes less hectic, I can find the time to walk the trails less traveled. It is on these walks that I become mindful of my surroundings. What is mindfulness? It’s the transformative power of being fully present in the moment, allowing yourself to delve into a state of calm, focused awareness, disconnecting from the digital world and engaging in the sense of interconnectedness with the world around you. On my mindful walks, I enjoy the beauty of the environment and the connection with the present moment.

Mindfulness Day is an emerging event, celebrated on September 12 to raise awareness of the value and benefits of mindfulness, and with this in mind (no pun intended), we are offering some new programs in the fall that I hope you enjoy.

Thanks for being a Friend of Connetquot!
