President’s Notes March 2021

Wow, we can finally see the sunshine for days at a time, go to the beach, sit outside without jackets, sleep with the windows open, enjoy the beautiful flowers and everything else that comes with Spring. This season also brings with it new fun and exciting events hosted by our club starting with a Scavenger Hunt in April, a Walk to End Alzheimer’s Challenge in May and a renewing of our regular monthly PHlockings beginning on May 7 at the E-Club. See our Newsletter for more information on these and other events.

Here’s wishing you a wonderful Easter with family and friends! Celebrate and be thankful of the time you have together! I’m looking forward to seeing you soon. Fins Up! Jan H. President



I’m happy to report that the Annual Membership Meeting went very well! Thanks to all who attended. We welcomed the new 2021 Board and planned a fun-filled 2021 calendar of events.  As a result, some of the events are familiar and several of our favorites are revised.  This will be one of our best years yet and I couldn’t wait to share it. Although I don’t have all the details yet, they will follow on our website and on Facebook.  In addition, check your Monthly Newsletters for the latest updates.  We all are aware that these events can change for various reasons and seasons.  Even so, we’ll go with the flow and keep smiling! Fins Up, ya’ll! Jan H., President.  Check it out below:
