April Newsletter and Upcoming Events

April 01, 2024 10:52 AM | Anonymous

Greetings Everyone! April’s club meeting and happy hour at Sugar Creek Brewing have been rescheduled to April 15th. I enjoyed the past two years as Club President and will be moving to the Past President role. Jace Gates accepted his nomination to run for Club President. He has my full endorsement, along with plenty of experience after four years in the vice president role.

This season, 312 club members enjoyed at least one of our four trips to iconic Western resorts or Crescent Ski Club’s two trips. Ski season is over for most of us, but the Western resorts are still getting snow.  

Remember to support our club sponsors, who provide great services and are a wealth of information. Thank you for your membership, and I look forward to having a great time together at meetings, events, and trips! 

~ Tom Grayson, Club President

Club Food Drives

Donate two items to boost your door prize odds with an extra ticket. Or better yet, bring four items, and you’ll receive two extra tickets! They have specifically requested these high-need items:

  • 15 oz no salt added canned beans and vegetables
  • 15 oz no sugar added canned fruit
  •  5 oz canned tuna in water
