President’s Message August

Dear Fellow Members,

“Variety is the spice of life.” That’s where SMC comes in with festivities, fun, & fellowship. I’m reminded what Abe Lincoln once said, “Folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

These are the golden years when we can spend our days doing what ever we like; playing cards with our club members; bowling in the winter; tennis and golf in the summer; singing with the choral group; shooting pool; attending Tom Bidigare’s Investment Seminars and listening to great speakers at our Crystal Ballroom Luncheons twice a month.

You can even be members of our Standing Committees and help out by selling luncheon tickets for Willie Wyatt. You can help with Luncheon arrangements for Mike Ryan or volunteer your help to Sal Testa with Guest registration and Badge preparation. Or you can just volunteer with Hospitality and greetings at our Luncheons with Bob Vogler, Jerry Teagan & Jim Triano and others.

You can suggest and provide Speakers to our 1st Vice President, Chris Walsh and soon to be 1st Vice President Ken Mokray for our two monthly Luncheons. You can help with the Newsletter mailing every first Tuesday of the month at 9:00am at the War Memorial or suggest and help Special Events chairman, James Callahan. You could volunteer to report on our Speakers for our monthly Newsletter.

There are so many things you can do. What a club… what a life… what a wonderful world we live in. As Abe Lincoln once said, “We are about as happy as we make up our minds to be.” We get lucky and happy when we made up our minds to be an active member of this great Senior Men’s Club of Grosse Pointe.

Enjoy your club, Men

Marty McMillan,
SMC President
