Letter From The President September 2014

Karen 2014It is September already and Fall Migration is around the corner. The Charity Golf Tournament will be held September 13th at the Valley at Eastport. If you haven’t signed up to play yet, you have until September 10th to get your entry form in to Geoff Girling. The golfers who played last year told us they had a great time so don’t miss out. Forms can be printed from the website.
The drawing for the golf cart will be held Sunday, September 21st at 1 PM at Fat Harold’s. Linda Campbell could use some more volunteers to help sell tickets during Fall Migration. Please let her know if you can help. Tina Tomberlin could also use some help in our Ways and Means store during the same time. If you can volunteer a couple of hours of your time, it will help our club and you will make new friends.

The entertainment for the August party was hilarious. Thanks to all who participated in the Black and White Dance. These members practiced for three months to be able to entertain us at the party.

Thank you to Howard Stallings and his helpers for another great “Cruise to Nowhere” which was held August 29th. The weather was perfect; and the crew of The Hurricane always does a great job chauffeuring us up and down the waterway while we party.

At the October party at the Pirate’s Cove, we will be announcing the winner of the Al Cain Award. This award is given to a member who has given their time above and beyond the normal to help the Club over the years. If you know someone you would like to nominate, please write up an article detailing all this person has done and e-mail it to me at raykey@sc.rr.com or give it to me in person before September 22nd.

Clean Sweep will be Saturday, September 27th. For new members, this is when we clean Main Street and the beach and Ocean Boulevard for 5 blocks north and south of Main Street as a community service after SOS. We will meet at 8:30 AM in the back part of the Pavilion. Coffee and some type of breakfast items will be available. Let Bruce and Cathy Fitzsimmons know if you can help.

Linda Morrison has informed me that we broke the 800 mark in membership. The more the merrier is what we say. We hope to see most of you at SOS. Party safely and have a safe trip home after the festivities.
