President's Letter, March, 2017

posted Apr 6, 2017, 5:40 PM by Gary Urbatis

Lent begins March 1st with Ash Wednesday.  It’s the time of year for Christians to remember that Jesus died and rose from the dead for us.  We have several events this month to help us prepare for Easter.  We will be attending a Fish Fry and Stations of the Cross.  This is a wonderful opportunity to support a church and have dinner with your CAC friends.  You can join us for both dinner and stations or just one.  We would love to share our faith with you.  Some churches have programs that are more meaningful for me than others.  It gives us something to reflect upon that could have a personal meaning or message.

We are also encouraged to do penance.  It doesn’t always mean giving up a particular food or drink.  We can resolve to help the less fortunate.  We can use our time, talents and/or treasure.  Ray is hosting a BOLD (Blind Outdoor Leisure Development) event at his house.  We’ll play games, have some good conversations, and be thankful for the good fortunes that God has given us.

We still have a few vacant board positions.  You can use this opportunity to give back to your club and help to welcome our new members.  Let one of the board members know if you have suggestions for events.  I hope to see you at an event soon.
