FROM THE PRESIDENT
May has been a busy month. First, a thanks to the members who pointed out to this novice that we should take a vote on each motion. Second, an apology to those members who were disenfranchised.
The Highline Lake clean-up had a minimum volume of trash but great food and friendship. Thanks to all, especially grill masters Linda and Wayne Ash. Though not a Newcomers function, the Art Center Guild concert at Two Rivers Winery was fantastic and well attended by members. Our May tour was at the Mesa County landfill, and the hardy members who braved the wind and rain were impressed by the extensive and professional operation. Finally, the second happy hour was held at the Chipeta Golf Course clubhouse. Thanks to the members that brought snacks to share. The room was large with great fairway views, and getting our own drinks wasn’t too much of a hardship. But a future $100 clean-up fee will probably make this a one-time visit. Bob Noble and I have checked out other sites and will report at the June meeting.
Many members will be traveling over the summer months. We wish you happy trails and safe trips.
Les Slowik, president
This is a combined June-July issue so that Bob and I can take a bit of a break and maybe head out of town for a while. I wasn’t able to include details here on our participation in the July 4 parade or a Newcomers table at a downtown farmer market. So watch for email announcements on those and maybe some other activities in the next two months.
Let’s get out there and enjoy the summer!
