Message from Ken Mokray, President of the Men’s Club of Grosse Pointe

 

On April 14th, the Men’s Club Board of Directors held a video conference meeting on Zoom.  I want to inform the members of the following steps we will take to insure the continuity of the Club.

  1. Though both Club and Sub-Club meetings are restricted during the lockdown, I will send periodic eBlasts out to the membership to inform them of specific actions. Please check your emails.
  2. The Men’s Club will hold its first Zoom based online general meeting on April 28th at the usual time at 11:00 am and a subsequent one on May 10th at 11:00. Some Sub-Clubs, such as the Readers, will be holding their own online meetings.
  3. The Board authorized two donations to aid the community. $500 to Gleaners Community Food Bank to provide 2,000 meals and $500 to the Ascension St. John Foundation for their Associate Hardship Fund to aid frontline healthcare workers and their families.
  4. Choral Group members have volunteered to don their blazers and sing out from their front porch at 7 pm each evening.
  5. The Newsletter will be posted on the website and sent out via eBlast but paper copies are suspended until safe distribution can be assured.
  6. Feel free to shout out support in recognition of our healthcare workers at 7pm each evening (as is occurring in NYC )–inside the house is okay as well.
  7. Standby for an eBlast sending an invitation for the first Zoom-based meeting.

Please stay safe and keep in touch with each other.  If you know a member who is not connected to the internet please give them a call to check in and update them on the Club.

To quote  Winston Churchill—We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

Ken A. Mokray, President
