"Everything has to come to an end, sometime." L. Frank Baum, The Marvelous Land of Oz
I hope this finds you feeling well, well fed, and content. I look forward to seeing many of you at the Christmas Banquet on Wednesday, December 7. If it is like last year, it promises to be fun with some great prizes and good food.
We will install our new officers for 2023 that night. Congratulations to Dave Underwood, our new presi-dent, Pat Galvin, vice-president, Katie Costanzo our treasurer, and new to the board, George Potiris as sec-retary. Many thanks to all of you for
I wasn’t too sure what I could offer as president. But, just so you know, the Club kind of runs itself. We faced some challenges since I started: COVID, Zoom meetings, meetings in the park, change of meeting locations, and cancelling (horrors) and rescheduling the Show for two in one year! Thank you for sticking with it, and keeping your humor.
I know that 2023 will be a great year, and probably even better than my first year in 2020!
I will never forget the precious faces on Zoom. I wish I had recorded the comments though:
“I can’t hear you. We can’t hear you. Move in closer so we can see you! You are on mute! Unmute! How do I see you? It’s the button at the bottom of the screen! Where did he go?”
As the end of my three years as your president approaches, I want to thank everyone who volunteered and worked to keep the Club alive and well, especially Steve Rudy, Katie Costanzo, Jerry Costanzo, Dave Under-wood and Pat Galvin. And of course, Honey.
In parting here are some wise words as winter approaches:
“There’s no such thing as bad weather, just soft people.” – Bill Bowerman, track coach and cofounder of Nike
“There is no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” – John Ruskin, Victorian
“There’s no such thing as bad weather – only poor clothing choices.” – Jackie Owens (yes, our Jackie)
Well, it has been a privilege.
See you at the Banquet!
Your Prez, Katie O
