President's Message

A message from Dianne

The View From The Top

Fall is in the air! And the air is clear! As I write this, the local fires are smoldering more than burning so the smoke is minimal. Sure makes participating in outdoor recreational activities more pleasant!

Fall is such a great time to be outdoors. The changing leaves offers so much beauty, and cooler temperatures yet sunshine and warmth during the day makes it hard to stay inside. I hope you are able to enjoy some hiking, biking, kayaking, tennis, golf, camping or whatever your favorite outdoor activities are.

We had some great events recently. The Sierra City trip was awesome, with over 30 Recr's participating. Despite the national forests being closed, all managed to find plenty to do - and we had perfect weather! Another great event was Doug Barr’s housewarming party. The turnout was high and what fun we all had, Thanks Doug for opening your home to us, We also had our final outdoor general meeting and BBQ of the year at Tanamera. A special thanks to Todd Betterton for being our BBQ master at function after function.

Tanamera has proved to be a great venue for our general meetings so we will continue to have our meetings there, moving indoors starting in October. Guy Lynch is working on bringing in speakers. We will have tables set up indoors and all are encouraged to bring their own food and beverages, if desired. This venue works very well, especially when so many restaurants are short staffed. We will be setting up a shuttle service to and from Tanamera from the Smith’s shopping center run by Club volunteers, as we recognize that some may not feel safe walking in the dark. Look for details in an upcoming email blast. And if you are willing to help volunteer to shuttle that would be great, just let me know.

Have you renewed your membership yet? Don’t forget its time to do so – no later than the end of November to remain as an active member. The online process is easy, with the 2021-22 membership form available on our home website page. When renewing, most of your information will be filled in already, just review and make any changes in necessary. Every individual needs to renew (no couples memberships). And don’t forget to put in your month and day of birth so we can include you in our monthly birthday lists.

Anyone up for leading an October bike ride, hike, kayak, or other fall activity? We need you!

Keep recreating,

Dianne
