Election Time !!

Once again it is time to elect our officers,  your nominating committee has finished  itís job and has presented their list of nominees. For those of you that might have missed the committee report presented at the October meeting those nominees are:
 

 Bob Leonard        President
 Doyle McConnell     Vice President
 Barbara Keen    Secretary
 Henry Davis      Treasurer
 Ruth and Marice Ryan        Publicity Chairmen


 Nominations will also be taken for the floor on election night, so if you have a candidate for a club office you will be given a chance to place that personís name in contention.  But remember that according to our club by-laws before you nominate that person you must have their prior approval to be nominated.

This seems an appropriate time to remember those members that have served as officers, below is a list of those members who have held offices in the past along with the folks who have been the editor of our newsletter.  We want to thank those folks along with all the countless committee chair persons and committee members who
have so generously given of their time. We owe the continuing success of our club largely to them.


GOD BLESS AMERICA!

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
- Martin Luther King, Jr.





Just a reminder to register at the meeting for the router drawing.
                                            Remember that the only way you can register is to be at the meeting.
This is the last registration before the Christmas Party.
