Stephanie’s President’s Message – #12

Hi all;

I want to thank everyone that attended the new member/year end party. We had a perfect day for it. Sunday would have been a challenge with 70 mpg gusts. Our new members Eric, Stephanie, Cannon and Scottlyn were a welcome addition to our family.

It was with great pleasure that I was able to meet our scholarship recipient, Jack Edwards last Tuesday for a photo op and officially present him with the $1000 scholarship. He seems like a great guy and very grateful for the money. He had previously received the funds from the Foundation so this was just a formality and to present the check to the Foundation. MSUB and City College are also very grateful of our continued contributions to their scholarship program.

We are winding down the year. Today I put my car away for the long winter months as I am sure many of you have also done the same, but this does not mean we will stop our activities for the year. We will continue to meet for breakfast on the second Saturday of the month. Also, we are in the early stages of planning a Christmas party scheduled for December 19th so stay tuned.

I would welcome any ideas for activities for next year. I would like to start planning the calendar for 2016 soon so please let me know if there is a place you would like our group to visit or a function we should hold and or attend. We had a pretty active year with a good variety. I would like to see out inactive members join an event of their choosing. You may be interested in becoming more active.

We are planning on moving our breakfast meeting on November 14th to one of our newer members restaurant. It is called the Local Bar and Grill located at 1430 Country Manor Blvd, behind the Red Door on Grand Avenue. They have a brunch on Saturday and Sunday. I thought this would show some great support to our newest member Brad Banks. So meet me there at 9 am on November 14th.

I want to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving.
