April 2018 – President’s Message

A message from Gord Kruger, Evergreen Club president

Hi Everyone…..Well, hopefully it’s “Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring”………remember that no winter lasts forever and no spring skips it’s turn. With that in mind it’s time to welcome the blossoms and the wonderful scents of another new beginning and time to let Spring breath new life into the world around us. Enjoy what’s coming!!!
And now onto the business at hand. First and foremost is the fact that we completed our 2018 Members Meeting and I
would like to express my thanks to all of you who took the time to attend and make it a excellent event.

It was an opportunity for your executive and management to come before you and talk a bit about the year past and the year ahead. Reports and updates from Volunteer Coordinator Deanne McRae, Special Events Coordinator Helen Waddell, Evergreen Coordinator Janet Hutchinson and some words from myself as your President were presented. Janet was also able to provide a financial update. As the past year was a year of transition we tried to be very clear about our relationship with the city and our position with the Courtenay Recreation Association (CRA). We were pleased to have CRA President Hans Petersen as a guest. Door prizes and refreshments were an added feature at the event. The new executive was acclaimed with only a couple of changes as Louise Stevenson and Wayne King were introduced as new Directors. The remainder of the executive positions will continue to be filled by the same people.

It’s nearly show time again as our very talented Second Stage Players are hard at work rehearsing for their spring production of “Joint Owners in Pleasant Acres”. The story is about two women in a retirement centre. One is a demanding shrew and the other a weepy attention-getter…..and they don’t get along with anyone. Don’t miss it as it promises to once again be a great Second Stage production. Performances are on Wednesday April 25th at 1:30pm and Thursday April 26th at 7pm. and tickets are available at the front desk or at the door.

And don’t forget the Evergreen Club Buffet Style Pancake Breakfast on Saturday April 7th in the Conference Hall. Sales are from 7:30am ’till 11am and it’s still only “FIVE BUCKS”. It really is the best deal in town!!

That’s a wrap for the moment…..Enjoy the coming of Spring and stay safe….. Adios for now…gk
