A message from Gord Kruger, Evergreen Club president
What the heck happened to 2019???……..all of a sudden it’s the twelfth and final month of the Julian and Gregorian Calendars…..it’s December and that means thirty one remaining days in 2019…and only limited time to get to Costco to pick up those Christmas gifts that have been on display since August. WoW!!!….its just amazing how time slips by as we live these “SENIOR YEARS”. December also signifies the emergence of the colder winter season and what it may bring Winter-Wise. However if our just completed November is indicative of what’s to come weather wise, then it might be a pleasant and mild winter….we can only hope!
Things tend to ramp up here at the Evergreen Club at this time of year. As I prepare this report there is the Christmas Bazaar and Luncheon just around the corner and a Comox Valley Band presentation of a concert called “Tradition” on Sunday December 1st at 2pm in the Conference Hall. Then it’s a normal Friday Night Dance on December 13th with a slight “Holiday Touch”…..Dancing Mary tells me that there will be a few door prizes and a table top Christmas touch. The Dan Hughes Band will be the band of choice for that evening. Our New Years Dinner Dance will of course be held on Tuesday December 31st with “Fixins and Dancin”. The Amigos will be in attendance that evening. Tickets and further information on the “New Years Gig” are available at the club office.
Our Evergreen Club Members Meeting was held on November 13th. For the benefit of those that attended several reports were given and Janet provided an updated financial report. All is well within our club it appears. Finances are good, membership is good and new members are coming on board, and enthusiasm within the club seems very positive. There were no complaints or negative issues raised and that is a very positive sign that things are going OK. There was no election required as we needed two new directors and two people stepped forward…..Riki Jager and Ron Webber were acclaimed as new directors with our executive. Congratulations and Thanks to both. Fred Green has stepped down after 10 years as a VOLUNTEER…..THANKS FRED!!
I was recently giving some thought to old age…….and after that thought I decided that old age was when you still had something on the ball but you were just too tired to bounce it…………….
That about covers it for now. I’d like to take a moment to wish you all a “VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY and PROSPEROUS and a HEALTHY 2020″ADIOS FOR NOW!!….gk
