President, NYFC

Hello friends,

As we enter the summer months, the NYFC team would like to thank you for your enthusiastic participation and camaraderie at our 2023-2024 in-person and online events. The season was successful because of YOU, and let's extend thanks and appreciation to Jenny Cline and Jayn Rosenfeld for their exceptional service and leadership.

We are busy finalizing our upcoming season and excited about the many experiences we have lined up for you, but in the meantime....

Did you miss an earlier event or want to catch a previous performance, interview, or workshop? Videos of many of the Club's events can be found on the Club's YouTube channel. Scroll left or right, or click on the "Videos" tab if you don't immediately see the one you want. Happy viewing!

Also, there's no time like the present for renewing your membership or becoming a member: you may join or renew online or print and mail the membership form at any time. 

Stay tuned for our 2024-2025 season details!

~Lish (rhymes with "wish;" she/her/hers)
