PRESIDENT’s COMMENTS: Thank you for the turn-out at January meeting, it indeed was great to see the turn-out. Now I must remind you all that we have some irons in the fire: 1) The funds we pledged to the Sunset Memorial are made up of the Monies from the Richard Martin and Virginia Whitman Memorials. And along with the $240.00 to make the total of $800.00 to the Memorial which shows our Leadership is in taking the lead and setting the example, and I thank you all for this. 2) Our 2018 budget passed, and that means that we must in our FREE WILL offerings maintain the same amount as 2017 at each meeting to satisfy the new budget. You have a Track Record, and I am really and Truly proud of each of you. I’m looking forward to seeing you all at the meetings.
Your President and Your Proud Representative - Richard (Dick) Trow
