President's Message

BurnsWinter

We are three months into the New Year and the snow hasn’t let up. So far this has been a tough year weather-wise and injury-wise. Black ice has taken its toll on our members and their families. We hope they have recovered, or will recover soon. And, we hope that this bad weather will end soon and we can all get back to normal living. On a somber note, 12 of our members have passed away since the beginning of December. On a good note, none left us in February.

Despite the weather Hobbyist activities go on. Our clubs continue to meet, the Lunch Bunch had a really enjoyable dinner at “Sage”, and the Holiday Dinner/Dance, and the Valentine’s Day Dinner/Dance (despite having to be rescheduled) were fun and were well attended. Two more events that get members together are coming up, The St. Patrick’s Day Luncheon on March 18th, and The Fellowship Luncheon on April 23rd. Two trips are coming up, to Mt. Airy Casino on March 24th, and to New Orleans on April 11th.

Put on your calendar that for the entire month of May the Hobbyist Camera Club will be exhibiting members’ best photos at the Stable in Ridgewood. And on May 18th you will get another opportunity to dance and have a great dinner at the Spring Dinner/Dance.

Overall, there are 22 different Hobbyist activities, not counting dances and trips that members can be involved in. All take some work to make happen. If you are enjoying the activities you are participating in don’t hesitate to pitch in and help.

I’m looking forward to seeing many of you at activities and events over the next several months, and let’s all hope for nice Spring weather soon.

Joe Burns

Church Parking Sign
As you might have noticed, the Church has put up the new sign warning students that they could be towed if they park in the Church spots.

To avoid our Member's cars to be towed, we suggest that you print THISsign and place it in the dashboard of your car when parked in the Church spaces.
