President's Letter, September, 2017

Post date: Oct 31, 2017 1:59:46 AM

September is upon us and we still have plenty of time to enjoy the warmer days. Although the evenings may require a jacket and for me, a hat. Margie would prefer to wear a hoodie. Seven of our events will be outdoors, five will be indoors. Our board members have scheduled a variety of events that I’m hoping that you can attend at least one of them.

Labor Day is the unofficial end to summer. I say let’s embrace it and have a great day on the river! If being on the water isn’t your thing, how about biking along the river? Or the Rib Fest along the river? Or a picnic next to a pond? Or even a mini golf game with a 12 foot waterfall and 2 water fountains? Or maybe the Irish Festival along the Monongahela River? If none of these entice you to be outdoors, our indoor activities include dinner, bingo with the residents of Emmaus House, and Oktoberfest. If you want to have flash backs from attending a Catholic Grade School and get a refresher, Late Night Catechism is where you want to be. Remember to sit up straight and don’t chew gum. Answer a question correctly and you may get a colorful pencil or erasure. You may even get moved to the front of the class. Or was it the disruptive student that got moved to the front. I don’t remember since I wasn’t the teacher’s pet or the class clown. I will admit, that in first grade, Sister Mary Beatrice Ann broke her yard stick on my behind for talking in line for the water fountain. Oh, the memories…

This is also the time of year when we start to consider new people to be on the board. For 2018, we’ll need a new president, 2nd VP, Membership Chairperson, mini golf chairperson, and maybe a couple others. Are you willing to help your club to continue to offer quality events and leadership? If yes, please let me, or any board member, know that you may be interested. We’ll find a position for you.

I hope to see you soon.
