20220401 President’s Letter

Here we are-already into another month. Bottom line-we made it with great success and smiles on our faces. We had 226 registered at our great 40th Anniversary on the 21st– 3 days later on the 24th we had 225 registered at our brunch- 6 days later we took approximately 60 people on a wonderful stroll down Main Street for our annual SOS parade.

The 40th was such a success. Our 21 volunteer bakers provided us with great treats. There is a separate write up on the 40th that can be read on the website. Thank you, Linda Campbell, for being my right hand for this. Thank all of you who contributed. You made it happen.

A huge thanks to Terry and Kathy for all the planning and prep for our Brunch. As always, the Arcade out did itself on our breakfast. Thanks everyone who worked it for us – 50/50, those who served, worked the hospitality, membership, ways and means, and golf cart ticket sales. Thanks Murl-you made it. 

Our club was totally awesome in the parade. We hit the streets with dancers, float riders (including our mystery “Little Egypt” who wowed the whole parade route with HIS “special number wearing a ruby in his tummy and a diamond on his toe”)  and an unbelievable golf cart caravan. What great crowd pleasers. Thank you Lou-you were so into it. The bottom line for all the weeks of work by a crew of 12-16 most of the weeks 2 times a week was a 1st place win for the Most Original category. There are so many people to send a special thanks to, but I don’t want to start naming because it will be 3 pages long and with my memory, I would probably miss someone. I do have to thank Linda Campbell for helping me with EVERYTHING. Thanks to Kaye Hughes for all her exceptional talents. Thanks to Ways and Means and Golf Cart Ticket sales staff for your dedication during SOS. Thanks to a great Board who are functioning as a TEAM for you to make this all happen. THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who has done anything.

PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR CLUB by purchasing golf cart tickets and Ways and Means products. We need volunteers to come forth to help with sales for the upcoming months.

Remember to be kind to one another and treat each other with respect have fun and dance like no one is watching. It is with your feet you move but it is with your heart that you dance.
