President’s Letter – September 2023
Can you believe it? It’s September already and the heat of the summer will hopefully be behind us, so we can enjoy lots of Carolina sunshine. Once again, we will reconvene at Pirate’s Tavern at the Giant Crab on Hwy. 17 (Restaurant Row) in Myrtle Beach for our monthly meeting. Come one, come all, for an evening starting at 6PM with an assortment of buffet items provided by the club. Remember to tip your waiters.
We had fun in the sun in August under the guidance of the Calabrettas. Now that most of the tourists have left town, the club has a fun-filled array of activities planned for September by Kathy Calabretta and Pat Van. Check out the list of events on the calendar to find what suits you for this month, and register online on our website. There will also be signup sheets available at the meeting. Register to reserve your spot in any limited space events and ones that might need prepayment. Please remember that house parties are open to only members. Guests need to be approved by the host!
As you know our travelers will be flying off to Scotland and Ireland on the 13th of September. John and Karen Schwartz have been working on this trip for months, and we look forward to a wonderful adventure. Photos will be posted on our website.
The Board is in the process of planning fall activities which will include a Halloween party at a member’s home and a Thanksgiving party at a restaurant. As dates and locations are confirmed, information will be sent.
As you can see, the board has been busy planning your activities, but we are always looking for new ideas and fresh blood to help with running the club. So, pitch in and bring your ideas to the table to enable the club to grow and meet your needs.
Please remember to register for an event, so the organizer can plan a successful activity. Also notify the monthly organizer if your plans change by going on the website to unregister for an event.
If you have not paid your 2023-24 dues, please get caught up with Judy Bledsoe at the meeting or print the application form and mail it to our PO Box. According to our Bylaws any member that has not paid their dues by August 15th will become inactive and will not receive emails, nor have access to the member’s website pages. Our roster is continually updated on the member’s website. Currently there are 104 paid members. You will need to log in and click on the Member’s tab to see the complete list of members and their addresses, emails and phone numbers. Please check your information on the roster to ensure that we have the correct information. If you know of any member that is not getting our emails, please contact Elena or Pat Van
