Welcome! I suspect you all are getting ready for the holidays? Some of you may be traveling to enjoy family and friends. Some of you will be staying put in the warmer weather. Whatever you do, travel safe, enjoy the family and have a great holiday season and a very Happy New Year!
There are lots going on with the Club in the next couple of months. I’ll be traveling so I will rely on Bob to keep you all updated. First off, there WILL be a breakfast meeting this month on Wednesday, December 5 at Pennbrooke Fairways. There will be NO December evening meeting however. Furthermore, due to the holiday, the January business meeting has been changed from January 2nd to January 9th. The location is still the same; Pennbrooke Fairways Golf Club. Then the January evening meeting will be the Winterfest Holiday Dinner on January 16. Tickets are $10.00 per person this year. The Board is asking that if you are planning on attending, please pay beforehand so that we can give the caterer a count so we have enough food! At the very least please register on the website and pay at the door!
There are several events coming up in the next couple of months and we could sure use some volunteers. If you are interested in helping out please let Bob Heinbach know or register on the website.
