Program outreach: Your TTN Chapter

Our chapter is growing and we find the need to invest in a computer.  

  The Billings Public Library has changed its policy and we can no longer borrow a laptop to use to present our programs.  

The investment of a laptop will allow us to assist signing up members at events, keep all our information in one place, and be available for our guest speakers.  

If you are unable to attend you can make a donation by sending a check to:

Billings Chapter TTN 
PO Box 21645
Billings, MT 59104

 Thank you for supporting our 
outreach program!
2018 Connections
Twice a year we will gather all our new members and connect them with each other.  

New members from 2017 through the first of January will be invited to meet on January 22nd at Yellowstone Cellars.  Watch for an invitation and details!
This is what you hear when TTN members get together.
  • "The friends I've made in TTN make me feel part of the world again."
  • "I'm transitioning to immobility. I've met a true friend. It's been very meaningful." 
  • "My peer group helped me figure out what retirement will really be like."
  • "The women I've met in TTN give me the courage to live a solo life." 
  •  "Hearing about how other women downsized helped me face some tough decisions about where I live."
It's what we do for each other than has the most impact.

Community Outreach
Outreach Makes A  

TTN women want to stay involved. They are using their skills to positively impact their own communities on a variety of levels. And they are changing the way organizations think of volunteers.  No longer satisfied to just stuff envelopes, our members are directing resources, raising money and finding gratification in "giving back." 

One way we can "give back" is by making donations to local non-profits.  In conjunction with our quarterly program we will highlight one organization which donations will be taken to. We will provide a list of items that the organization is in need of and ask that you consider a gift when joining us at the program.
