President’s Message – December 2019

From the Top of the Rock Pile . . .

Our show next year is September 19 – 20, 2020. So please mark your calendars now so that you can not only attend our show but volunteer for a few hours. I am in the process of making up a list of the positions and their respective responsibilities. I hope to more evenly distribute the work of putting together the show. At the January meeting I will be looking for volunteers to fill the positions and 12 volunteers to help out during the show. We will not be able to proceed with a 2020 show without a commitment of everyone to pitch in and help. So please plan ahead to help.

Our Holiday Pot Luck Dinner, election of Officers and club auction will be on Sunday, December 15th. We have moved the dinner a little later to accommodate those that attend church. Look elsewhere in this issue of the Tumbler for more details. I hope to see everyone as it such a good time to enjoy a good meal and visit with one another.

Our club treasury is ending the year in good shape. This is so nice to see since we lowered our club dues in 2019. I am looking forward to another good year for our club.

Kat Koch, President
