President’s Message October


Thank you for the opportunity to be your club President. Thank you also to Bob Murphy for his service and leadership to our club during the past year. For the past three years I have followed Bob in various leadership roles on our board and he patiently taught me the duties and responsibili-ties of each office. I appreciated your mentorship and our club appreciated your efforts and dedica-tion.
Our motto in the Senior Men’s Club of Grosse Pointe is Festivities, Fun and Fellow-ship and there are plenty of opportunities for our club members to live our motto. Each month our newsletter lists activities (Sub Clubs) to get in-volved in, such as The Investment Club, Bowling, Contract Bridge, Duplicate Bridge, Card Players, Choral Group, Florida Snow Birds, Golf, Music Makers, Pool and or Billiards, The Readers and Tennis. These groups are meeting regularly and having fun. I am sure there is one that interests you. The Newsletter identifies when they meet and who to call. Visit the group, see what they are all about and get involved.

Speaking of our newsletter, John Snyder is someone I would like to recognize in my first Presi-dent’s message. John heads up our terrific newsletter every month. In a very polite and tenacious way, he tracks down everyone for information for our newsletter and compiles all the information and produces a comprehen-sive newsletter every month. John does say it has been a learning experience from day one, and even more so after the hack of the InDesign program. The Newsletter Editor is sometimes quite frustrated. Without John’s efforts, our club members would become out of touch. John has been providing us with a quality product, something that we all enjoy and feel proud to pass on to a potential member or friend and he has been doing this for the last 6 years.
Please share with your friends the good things that are happening at the SMC. Invite them to lunch, introduce them to your Club friends, give them a copy of the Newsletter. Continue to enjoy your Club. You deserve it.

Marty McMillan
SMC President
