I am sending a warm greeting to all of you. As I reflect on my many years in Newcomers, I will be forever grateful for the memories created by my experiences as an active member.
My life has changed with my move to Lake County, but the friendships forged remain in a special place in my heart. I commend the members who continually step up to volunteer in a variety of positions. Their ongoing participation helps keep the amount of work balanced in operating this wonderful club.
You are very fortunate to have dedicated women like Joan Bove, who has once again agreed to serve as President. It would surely be nice to have new members consider the areas where they can serve the club and be a part of shaping Newcomers in the coming years. The club only survives and thrives through its members and their contributions in many areas of expertise.
I was glad that my life allowed me to serve on the Board for almost 25 years in many different positions. I grew emotionally and spiritually from doing jobs unfamiliar to me, while learning how to do them from others who knew how.
I encourage you to look into your hearts and find some way to become a large part of helping our club operate for the mutual good of all.
