President's Message

PresidentThank you for electing me as President of the Hobbyists for this next year. It is a great organization and I will do my best to uphold its tradition of providing interesting activities for retired men.

In keeping with the idea that the organization has grown to its present size through the efforts of many members who have volunteered their time and energy, I will work to encourage both present and new members to participate in, and become involved in, the many clubs, social events, and trips and tours that we have going on. The old adage that “many hands make light work” certainly applies here. The more of us involved the more activities we can have, and the lighter the load on any one of us to be involved.

On another note, we have begun the planning for the Hobbyist’s 50th Anniversary Celebration in 2016. At the moment, we are thinking of having some celebratory event at the Fellowship Luncheon in April of that year and also doing something special at the Fall Dinner-Dance. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Again, thanks for according me this honor. I look forward to working with you as we all enjoy being members of this terrific organization.

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.
