The club is now over half way through the four month shutdown that we felt necessary to impose in September due to renewed COVID-19 concerns. Happily, the outlook today is much more promising and we feel good about resuming indoor events in January, as planned, and the prospect of renewing friendships with many members, especially those from overseas whom we have not seen since the beginning of the pandemic.
As you will understand, bringing you this entertainment requires the combined efforts of our club’s board, including the latest additions to our team, LuAnn Schafer, who has kindly taken on the role of club secretary and Annette Geiss, helping with memberships. Many of the current board members have generously agreed to continue to serve, in one role or another, as we relaunch the club in 2022, but we cannot, and should not, impose on them indefinitely. Ideally another one or two volunteers will step forward soon (the more the merrier, all positions are open). If you enjoy this club and wish to see it continue beyond the middle of next year, we urge you to open a conversation with any of the current board members (whose names and email addresses are listed on our Contacts page) to identify where you might best contribute. Failing that, persuade a friend!
We will conduct the Annual General Meeting (AGM) during the Jan 23rd event (Brian Gillie) and we are hoping for a strong turnout in support of the club. A slate of officers will be proposed for election, once we know all of the volunteers we can count on, and the financial report will show that the club is in excellent health. With a steady influx of volunteers there can be many happy years ahead of us; alternatively, we may have to wind up the club before the end of 2022.
