Presidents Message for August 2016

I am very honored to be the president for our 2016/2017 year.  I am looking forward to a wonderful year working with all of you.  On July 19th, we held the planning meeting at Josephine’s, it was productive and delicious.  Thank you very much to all who participated!  I think we have a great list of speakers for this upcoming year.

                Please note that we have moved our meetings from Tuesdays to the last Wednesday of the month.  (Except for October and probably December.)  We are hoping that Wednesday’s allow more people to attend.       

                August 31st is going to be our fun meeting.  This year we are planning on bowling at Starlight Lanes.  It is always a lot of fun.  We do have some really good bowlers, however I am not one of them.  I am usually competing for the lowest score and have so much fun doing it. 

                Hope to see many of you at Starlight Lanes.  Please remember to RSVP. 


Thank you,

Diana M. Sickels
