President's Message

BobStevensonR Dear Hobbyists:
A continuing strength of the Hobbyists is the presence of an effective Executive Board, including the past four Presidents, which keeps our traditions in place and under prudent control.

In November and December we will experience some of these traditions that make our organization special. At the November meeting we will vote on the new slate of officers which includes Joe Burns-President, Jim Sutherland-1st VP, Sid Robertson-2nd VP, Joe Shannon-Secretary; John Pensec-Treasurer, and Lou Maffei-Church Representative.

On November 16th, our sponsor, The First Presbyterian Church, will honor the Hobbyists as they celebrate Hobbyists the 10:00 AM service. The “Passing of the Gavel” ceremony will take place at the December 4 general meeting, including all past living Presidents, followed by the annual Holiday Concert performed by the Ridgewood HS choral group. The nursery school children who join us complete a visual life span--seniors, young adults and children.

Our social calendar will be highlighted by the Holiday Dinner Dance on Tuesday December 16 at Seasons ably administered by Charlie Tuch, Ed Daly and Fred Schwecke. This should again be the most attended social event of the year. Join us for a great evening.

Unfortunately, we lost eleven members this year. Our condolences and prayers go out to their spouses and families.

Finally, for new members and those who have not been active in our numerous activities, may I encourage you to participate in some activity and benefit from the Hobbyists fellowship and experience.

Bob Stevenson
