Happy Saint Patrick’s Day men! March Madness is upon us and I hope that you have all received your COVID19 vaccinations along with your family members by the time you receive this Newsletter. Our Board’s Committee on Alternative Sites for our actual meetings has settled upon the Tompkins Center located in Windmill Point Park, Grosse Pointe Park as our temporary home for actual meetings until the War Memorial welcomes our return. There will be plenty of space for us to maintain social distancing. There is ample parking space and the meetings will potentially be catered by Mary Lou Muer of Blue Pointe fame. The Committee is ironing out cost and the menu selections, but they assure me that everything will be to our satisfaction and enjoyment. We are aiming at May to begin our meetings at the Tompkins Center, if all goes well. We will update you as we progress.
At our last Board of Directors’ meeting of Feb. 9, 2021, we welcomed Arthur J. (Chip) Rohde, Jr. who many of you know as a new member of the Board of Directors. Chip is a great addition to the Club and the Board of Directors. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to us, not to mention his vitality and enthusiasm. Please welcome him as the opportunity presents itself.
Remember that the old Senior Club badges are available for a contribution of $20 and that we are need of a person to fill the vacancy of Secretary also that of 2nd Vice President. If you are interested please call me at 313 220 8315.
Jim Callahan, President
