Canoe Trip, Saturday, September 23



1. From the President


Hello Fellow Ski Club Members,


  Wow!  Fall is almost here and the ski season is already approaching. First of all I would like to say that I am honored to lead the Ski Club this year and I hope that my many years on the board will help me do so.

  I would like to say thank you to the new and existing board members for stepping up and helping during a time of transition. They have the club vision and will bring their expertise to move us through the season.

  The house committee has been busy this summer with renovations in the upstairs bathrooms. They look great and no more carpeting! Thank you for spending some of your summer at the club for this improved update.

  Sue and Norma are already working and will be around to assist club members in keeping the club running smoothly. I thank you for your club support.

  Thank you to all the club members who have stepped up during work bees to close and open the seasons. Remember your club is member driven and we need to hear from you.

  The club and board will have a spaghetti dinner and open house on Saturday, December 30th. Come and meet the new board and give us your suggestions. 

  I hope all can enjoy the upcoming ski season and keep up the existing traditions while working for the future of the club. Thank you and ski on!


Paul Waug
