Presidents Message – October 2017

Presidents Message – October 2017  

Thank you to everyone that helped out at our booth at the Puyallup Fair! We have already received inquires about our Club and expect to see a few guests and possibly new members attend our October meeting. These PR events are very important as they provide a way to get the word out about our Club. New members keep our Club growing and healthy, provides us with fresh new ideas and interests to pursue and a membership base large enough to have various classes.

At the Fair I have been able to spread the word that our Club does presentations to schools. I have spoken to 3 PTA’s and several home school programmers. Hopefully we will hear from some of them this school year.

If I am reelected President this December it’s my goal to start a children’s program in the near future.

Talking about election of Officer’s, our election is coming upcoming this December. President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and one Director are up for election. So your choice of what position you would like to fill is wide open. It only requires you attending one additional meeting each month: a Board meeting on the Monday prior to the General.

We also need 2 non-Board positions filled: Historian and Youth Program Leader.

Nominations are open from now and until our November meeting. The ballot will be presented at our November meeting. Voting will be held at our Holiday dinner in December. So everyone seriously think about throwing your hat in the ring for one of these positions. We are always looking for new volunteers and ideas for our Board. If you are interested let any Board member know, at a meeting or via email, what position you would like to run for.

Kat Koch, CMS President

I suggest that you sign-up online before too much time passes so we know where we stand on covering all our bases. You can also text or call Mark and let him know when you can help out. We had to take a larger venue in order to have our show on the 3rd weekend of September as the college made a mistake and the Student Union was

Meeting Announcements

  • I am very proud of our Junior Tumbler’s. Alex Danneman, Isaiah Fu, Isabel Viejo, Alexa Viejo will have display cases at our Show. They each will be working on badges. Last year our Juniors did an outstanding job on their first time display cases and each earned their “Showmanship” badge.. This is the 2nd year for Alex and Isaiah and the first time for Isabel and Alexa. I am looking forward to seeing each of their cases.

  • The Young Tumblers (youth members) have their own door prize drawing at each meeting. We encourage our Young Tumblers to participate in Show ‘n Tell each month. We also have a section of our monthly newsletter for them only to earn Rock Bucks. Rock Bucks can be spent on the monthly raffle or the club auctions we have throughout the year. The website and newsletter now has your own section. Be sure to look at to see what’s new this month and any announcements.
