President’s Message: Latest Developments

“It was a close run thing” – This quote is attributed to Arthur Wellesley, the 1st Duke of Wellington, after the Battle of Waterloo. i think this is an appropriate reference since the Club is still standing despite Covid19. The club has adapted to a changing environment. We continue to meet via zoom for the speaker’s meetings, book club, and investment club. The golf and tennis groups still play, with different locations perhaps, but still soldiering on. The card players are meeting, initially via zoom and now across large tables. Conditions on gatherings have prevented the choir from carrying on as usual. Clearly, all of us wish we could meet in person.

But a word of caution about the future of the Club. It faces strong headwinds. To grow and not stagnate we must continually attract new members and offer new activities with wider appeal. This requires flexibility and new approaches. I encourage the club to engage in new activities. If something doesn’t work , let’s move on and try a different approach. Let’s not be afraid to experiment.

I am pleased to announce the following “election’ results:
President James Callahan
First VP Henry Fischer
Treasurer James Hoekwater
Asst. Treas. David Buckler
Secretary David Morrow
Asst Secretary Jim Triano
Directors- John Snyder, Jerry Teagan, Ed Benz, Albert Spalding Jr
The new terms take effect on October 1, 2020

Ken Mokray,
President
