From the President
I recently attended three club events--Tour and Lunch, the Dinner Club group dinner and Happy Hour. I continue to be impressed with what a good job all of the volunteer members do with all the events. Thanks, and keep up the good work. I encourage everyone to take advantage of the events. Tour and Lunch usually has a full group and Happy Hour had over 50 members participate, so make plans early. I am looking for someone to manage the raffle at the end of the meeting. If you are willing to do this, please let me know.
John Marshall, the President of CMU, gave us an excellent presentation at the May meeting. Our upcoming speaker for June 14 will be Jeff Stephens, a club member, who is a volunteer with the Mesa County Search and Rescue. Hope to see all of you there.

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!
