WOW… Looks like summer at the beach has finally arrived. The weather is heating up and so are our activities.
First of all, I want to send a BIG THANK YOU to Grey and Mary Culbreth for organizing last month’s meeting. Their planning and execution were terrific along with the purple tablecloths!
We also concluded our first month of the 2019-20 year with our newly elected board members: Gene Young, Mary Alice Blackburn, Jane Edwards and Deb Muller as Directors, Bill Neumann and Grey Culbreth as Vice Presidents, Karen McCurry as Treasurer, Peggy Christie as Secretary and myself as President for the a 3rd term. At this time Deb Muller has indicated that she cannot continue in her Director position. Therefore, I have made an executive decision to install Jim Malloch in her place for the remainder of her 1-year term. Thank you, Jim! It is greatly appreciated that you are stepping up to help the club! We are still looking for members who are interested in participating in the workings of the club. As Gene Young mentioned at June’s meeting, we have the rest of the year’s monthly coordinators in place. Contact Gene if you would like to take on a month in 2020.
We will kick off July with a trip to the NC Planetarium on the 1st, followed by a Swim Party at Dave and Wendy’s for the Independence weekend on Friday July 5th, Check out the rest of the events that Kathy and Jim Malloch have organized for the month and join us for any that tickle your fancy.
The July Rafting trip is set and the August activity organizers are planning a great schedule for the rest of the summer, so stay tuned! How about deep-sea fishing, skydiving and Woodstock revival!! We are also working on a trip in the Fall and a winter ski trips. Read on in the newsletter for details and reach out to John Schwartz for more information and schedules for deposits.
Our 2019-20 membership drive is continuing. Thanks to all who have renewed their membership and welcome to our new members. Your deadline to renew your membership is September 1st. After that date any previous member will be dropped from our mailing list. Therefore, it behooves you to renew before Sept 1st. We are still the best bargain on the beach for only $50 a year. Attached is the application, so just fill it out and either bring it to the July meeting at the Myrtle Beach State Park on the 9th or mail to our PO Box. Also, keep spreading the word about our club to entice new members to join in the festivities.
Elena Moglia, President
