Message from the President

on .

Fellow Members:

As of this writing, our Lodge has lost several stalwart members who meant a lot to all of us here. They were regulars, people you may not know really well, but saw them here in the Club on a regular basis. May God bless them and their families in this difficult time. As a Club, we will miss them tremendously.

Many have asked questions regarding the parking lot, and the expansion thereof. We are on the list, and hopefully this long awaited project will get off the ground. I'd like to thank the Board of Trustees for getting the bids in a timely fashion and including the permitting process and proper stone in the bid package as well. We need to be able to actually pave over should we decide to without having to remove the entire base to install another. We don't want to spend 'bad money,' trying to get to an objective.

The kitchen is just about done and will help streamline the process of our food prep. Thank you to all our members for your patience while this process has taken place.

As a result of the recent election of Officers, there was a vacancy created in the One-year Trustee position. As the President, I had the power to appoint an Officer and after having letters of interest submitted and interviewing each candidate, a decision was reached to appoint Rick Sciranka to the one-year Trustee position. Rick has, to his credit, management and ownership experience in the one area we lack on the Board, restaurant and bar. Which is a major part of our business model. He brings a wealth of this type of experience to the Club and can assist the management team in overcoming the issues that face us.

We have a great Club here, with many wonderful members with various talents. It's nice to see someone willing to step up and put that to use in helping our Lodge become even better. Please welcome Rick and take the time to talk with him about your concerns and positive feedbacks. Remember, it's not a one Officer Club, it's many officers all working together that make a true organization.

I would also be remiss in my remarks today, if I didn't thank Kenny Duncan for the job he did as a One-Year Trustee. On behalf of the Officers and members, thank you Kenny, for your service and job well done.

- Doug Wise, President
