President's Message

BobStevensonR Dear Hobbyists:
the holiday season. The Feb. 13th Valentine’s dinner dance, cancelled due to snow threat, and was re- scheduled for Tuesday Feb. 25th at Seasons. This event will be the first collaborative social event with Activities Unlimited in Wyckoff occasioned by the fact that both organizations face a seasonal attendance drop off due to the annual exodus of snowbirds. Hopefully, if you are around you will consider attending in a less crowded venue and with a high probability of garnering those fine Seasons appetizers!

As we embark on another year of Hobbyist social activities, let us keep in mind some upcoming dates such as the Lunch Bunch on Sunday Feb 23 run by Bob Sayegh, the ever popular St. Patrick’s luncheon run by our in house Leprechauns, Jim Feeney and Tom Desmond, on March 14th and the Fellowship Luncheon run by Dave Smilon on April 24th. Look for the sign up information and support these events.

At our upcoming March 6th general meeting we will welcome a representative of Boiling Springs Bank to present information on a Community Alliance Program that many area businesses and non-profits have joined. The umbrella organization, which would be the Hobbyists, would benefit from the accumulated balances committed by members in the form of a periodic donation based on activity and balances. The account holders would receive the normal interest. Your Executive Board has endorsed our membership and has opened a Money Market account to establish our commitment. Details will be distributed to the full membership after the 3/6 meeting.

Finally, after a long dues collections effort, we have resolved our 2014 membership roster which will be available on the website to the membership with computer access.I want to thank Don Togneri for his tireless efforts particularly in chasing down slow paying members. Hopefully, next year members will minimize the efforts to pry out the $50 after the normal payment cycle through the first meeting in Dec.

Try to “enjoy “this long lingering winter season as you keep your snow shovel in the ready!

Bob Stevenson

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.
