are enjoying the Thanksgiving weekend. I just wanted to
address a few items before our next meeting.
meeting is our annual Christmas party. Saturday,
December 15th @1100. Same venue as last year, short
meeting, then the meal will be served at @1200. Menu
will be pot roast and ham with sides and Caesar
salad and desserts. There will also be donuts and
bagels, coffee and water, and the bar will be
available for additional beverages. Cost is $20.00
per person. COB is collecting payment, either send
to National Office
to him, his home address, or you can pay at the
door. We do need a head count as soon as possible to
inform Karen and her staff of how many to expect.
Do not send cash in the mail.
Elks Lodge 1181
has asked to remind Base Members it is that time of
year for dues renewal. He will be sending e-mails
and letters. Our Base is successful due to strong
membership. I hope you will renew, and grab a
shipmate and bring to a meeting. New members are
always welcome. Thank you.
last item. At the last e-board and general
membership meeting, the idea to have our general
membership meetings on Saturdays year round, was
discussed and mentioned. At this time, we split
the meetings between Tuesdays and Saturdays
throughout the year. It appears we have the same
turnout as far as attendance both days. I am
looking to stay consistent and have our meetings
on Saturday, throughout the entire year. As of
now, we have meetings on Saturdays, 7 out of 12
months as follows;
October, November, December, January, February,
March, and our annual picnic on Saturday. ( Our
picnic has rotated, July-August)
May, June, August, September on Tuesdays.
understand we have parades and additional events
in the summer, but I think it is doable, I am
looking for feedback, positive and negative, on
this topic. I would like to bring it to the
table at the December E-board meeting. This is
not my decision, but the decision of the
membership and the E-Board. I just believe
keeping our meeting consistent throughout the
year will be better for the base. Just my
opinion. Any questions or concerns, please
contact me. I hope to hear from many of you.
Thanks for your time. Be safe and see you soon.
