Well folks as you read this , 2013 is booked and behind us. Since it is still 2013 as I write this , I just can't let go of how great a job our Christmas party committee and their helpers did to create an environment to have fun for the close to 100 who attended.
Thank you again - Pat Harvey, Karen O'Connor, and Judy Rago. Plenty of room, food and fun! Dan & Camille Furay won the farthest traveled to attend at 425 miles!
For next year we plan to return to the New Lenox VFW. I note there is room to dance - so for entertainment - maybe our new board member, Larry Loven, will dance for us. I know he can't sing! On the entertainment note - what we had was great but at this time I don't know if they have other "acts". If not, we will be accepting suggestions for next year. You may ask why now? With all of us going to parties over the holidays, some one must have seen a group that may suit our needs.
For 2014 all of our Chairpersons will remain the same. Thank You!
Our board met this morning to decide upon how we could structure the Executive Board to better identify a person with a specific responsibilty . So - President - Mike Amwoza, Vice President -Jeff Heilman, Secretary - Gary Ross, Treasurer - Mike Root,Director at Large - Larry Loven.
As always suggestions are welcome from our membership. One that will be implemented is the use of name tags at the meeting. It will be nice to put a name with a familiar face. Some faces I think were Halloween mask models, but I could be wrong.
We had 59 in attendance at the last meeting followed by almost 100 at the party - absolutely great. I look forward to seeing you participate during 2014. For the meetings we are going to try and have some type program on a automobile topic of interest . So if you have not come out - try us - I think you will like it .
