The Holiday season has come and gone in a blink of an eye and we once again start off a new year with fresh hopes for health, happiness and prosperity. Hopefully the ski club will get you all through the chilly days of January with some healthful activities which will bring happiness into your lives. I cannot do anything for the prosperity part, that’s all on you. We will just try to keep costs down on activities as many of us are probably paying off those Christmas bills.
WOW!! 2020! It’s the beginning of whole new decade! Did you make some New Year’s resolutions? One of mine is to improve on last year. Now that’s going to be a big challenge as we had an awesome 2019. 2019 was a specular year for CSOC through the accomplishments our board and club members. I want to shout out a BIG THANK YOU to: Kathy Britt, Mary Alice Blackburn, Judy Bledsoe, Faith Campbell, Peggy Christie, Grey Culbreth, Jane Edwards, Karen Fitch, Paul Fitch, Linda Jones, Kathy Malloch, Jim Malloch, Bill Neumann, Rick Rodger, John Schwartz, Karen Schwartz, Pat Van, Sherry & Bob Walters, Gene Young, Gene Youtsey. And of course, all the Monthly Activity Coordinators and Hospitality Hosts!! I hope I didn’t forget anyone!
Now we need your help to have an even better 2020. We are getting a jump on achieving this as we kickoff January with Joe Allen’s New Year’s Day House party followed by an array of new events throughout January and February. Maryann Giroso and Judith Steinmetz are putting together an interesting array of January activities while Pat Van and Kathy Malloch are working on February surprises for all of us. John Schwartz has been diligently working on our trip to Portugal & Spain where club members will explore ancient sites and frolic in the snow. So, we are starting 2020 with a real jump start and we can use your ideas for future planning to make my 2020 resolution come true. Come to a board meeting to join in the planning or reach out to our VP in charge of Activities Gene Young. It definitely takes a village to run this club and we have a fine community at that! We would love to hear your ideas and value your input.
That’s about it for now. Looking forward to another fun filled year ahead.
Elena Moglia, CSOC President
