From the President
I hope each of you had a opportunity to spend time with and enjoy your family and friends over Thanksgiving. We truly have much to be thankful for living in the Grand Valley. There are many club activities for the month of December, including the Holiday Party and Dinner Club group gathering. We will also have a regular meeting on December 13th. The speaker will be Ashley Chambers, Housing Director for the City of Grand Junction. Look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
- Gary Fitzpatrick, President
A friend came to one of our Grand Junction Newcomers meetings and decided he'd rather not join. His reason, “You guys just aren't doing enough!” WOW! Color me astounded!
The “Club Activities” page lists 16 different active options from Armchair travel to our Dining Club to Downhill Skiing to Hiking to Needlepoint and (the ever popular) more!
The list of possible “Volunteer" Activities is pretty amazing as well.
If you have trouble keeping track of all our activities – I know I do – there is the club "Calendar" which lists a few activities not on the activities page.
If you still can't find anything to do, just ask Gary Fitzpatrick, our club president, to let you make an announcement at a club meeting and drum up interest in your favorite activity - you could be a trendsetter!
