The View From the Top
What a grand summer it is has been! The record hot temperatures have been challenging, but our recent rainfall has helped our parched environment. And we received a record amount of rain for August.
September marks the start of our annual membership drive. We are going strong and currently have over 230 members. We want to keep it this way! Please renew your membership; all members need to renew by November 30. If you recently joined, thank you – your membership will last through November 30. Please understand that each individual needs to fill out a membership and renew (we do not have “couples” memberships). Sometimes we are still asked to provide paper forms which are no longer available; we are completely online so now we don’t have someone input all your information. This was time consuming and at times the data was hard to read so errors were frequent. Our Web Technician and VP of Membership/Public Relations, Robert Newbury, has worked hard to make the online membership process and form easy for all to fill out online. This system is a great improvement - thanks for your support and thank you Robert!
Please refer your friends to our Club! When they join make sure they indicate that they heard about the Club from you so you can be entered in our membership contest which runs from September through November.
Ok, on to fun stuff. We had another great general meeting at Idlewild park, complete with a great BBQ thanks to Todd Betterton and all the great side dishes our members brought. Thank you Dorothy and John McCorkingdale for hosting a fantastic pool party. The weather cooperated this year and a large crowd enjoyed the weather, swimming, socializing, and dinner in a beautiful outdoor setting.
And thank you Todd Betterton for organizing a TGIF/night at the Aces complete with fireworks.
In September we have some member hosted TGIF’s, an evening at the Van Gough experience and a trip to Sierra City
