A new activity group may form!
FROM THE PRESIDENT
One down, eleven more meetings to go (one-year term - bylaws). Only kidding. This is fun. Be patient with me.
I appreciate the suggestions on 4” x 6” cards from last meeting. My goals are similar; keep meeting under one hour.
Can we speed up raffle or just put a donation jar by cookies/coffee to cover costs? Let’s discuss.
Many praised the newsletter and online. Is this better for announcements instead of at the meeting? Let’s discuss.
I’m looking for ideas to get younger people and singles into GJNC. Committee or 2nd VP Katie?
Feedback from all of you helps all of us. Drop a note to the newsletter or me on how you liked a tour, a dinner club, happy hour, wine tasting or trip. We’ll publish your comments.
This is a great club. This is your club. Let's make it even better!
Les Slowik, president
The newsletter has two fresh voices this month. Les Slowik has jumped into his role as president with relish (and mustard, he might add). Jo Ann Hargis has brought new detail into our minutes. As a new Newcomer, she’s commended for tackling the job of who said what during stepping what can be a rather noisy meeting. They both merit props for forward.
Others have contributed too. Ernie Stech and Yvonne Spaulding are launching a new group, Plane Crazy. Paul Gasman sent in the great shot of our hikers in McDonald Creek Canyon. Tony Weadock is looking for other musicians.
Maybe you have a Shout Out to share, an idea for a new group, or a praise or a pan. We’d like to hear from you as well.
