President’s Message


In our last meeting in October, many of you heard that I needed to resign for medical reasons. For those of you who were not at the meeting, please see below:

Over the past month I received some very sad health issues, so I needed to resign my president post. In early October I had a Pet-Scan with the outcome being “Alzheimer’s”. Sharon has been great over this month and she will be my care-keeper. At this time my calendar is booked solid with appointments from Social Security, Doctor’s office, etc. I am sorry I could not finish this term. If possible I would still like to continue with the club – if possible.
