May 30 Meeting

To Friends of ELITE Members,


Please mark your calendars – Friends of ELITE is having its Annual Members’ Meeting at NCB on Tuesday, May 30th at 6:00pm!  We’ll tell you briefly how we supported ELITE and its students (current and alumni), recap the year’s activities and share plans for the upcoming key.


At this meeting, we’ll be electing officers for the upcoming year (July 1, 2023 – June 30, 2024).  We’re looking for 3 nominees – president, vice president & secretary.  If you’re interested in learning more, please reach out asap.  If we don’t have the volunteers to serve, we won’t be able to continue as an organization and support these all-important social activities for our students and alumni.


Thank you,

Mary Williams

Vice President

Our Sincerest Thanks

The end of the year and beginning of another holiday season is traditionally a time to count our blessings. Here at Friends of ELITE we are especially grateful for the many people who have graciously contributed their support.

Our sincerest thanks for the books, cash donations, food, time, effort and many well wishes as Next Chapter Books and Friends of ELITE debuted earlier this year. Next Chapter Books is a vibrant part of the Trumbull community and because of your generosity, Friends of ELITE has been able to create a network of volunteers, sponsor social gatherings for our special needs young adults, purchase an ice machine for the bookstore and NCB gift cards.

Our goal for the coming year is to establish a regular series of social get togethers for ELITE students and alumni – pizza parties, movie nights, and a variety of social events as well as supporting Next Chapter Books activities and events as we can.
Here’s how you can help!
