 1st Vice President’s  Message

    At the June meeting we left one piece of work undone: electing a new President.  The Club Bylaws stipulate that the Club President may not serve more than 3 contiguous terms.  That means I could not have served 1 more term without taking a sit-out!  I will continue to open and conduct meetings until we get a member who is willing to serve as President.  With both of your Past Presidents (myself & Jim Cosgrove) serving as Club Vice Presidents, we hope to provide insight and support to the new President.  Step right up!  We will insure your success!

Our Program Director, Lorraine Campilii, has been working with her protege, Emily Poster, and has a talk on Alzheimer’s for our meeting on 9/17, followed by the latest info on IBM’s Health Plan for our October meeting.  We will have a Musical Interlude at our November Meeting, and a great Christmas Party being organized by Cathy Golan.

Lou DeFelice will be presenting our trip lineup at the meeting. 

We will have Coffee and Donuts as usual being offered by Joe Incoronato, Joe and Joan McGrath.  We all look forward to seeing you and hearing about your Summer!

Welcome Back!

Ed McKenna, 1st Vice President
