April brings to close the 2014 riding season and with it another busy summer season for the Snowseeker’s.
At the May 1st meeting at the Harmony Moose, we will hold our yearly elections with the new officers taking office in September. The President position will be open as required by our by-laws and the 3 year limit for this office. Also, Sandy Harris will be looking for a replacement as she will be stepping down after 5 years of Secretarial duties. Please consider running for 1 of these open positions or for any office or the Board of Directors. All it takes is a nomination from one of your fellow Snowseeker’s.
May 10th will also bring us our 4th Annual Spring Bash Raffle, once again at St. Ferdinand Church in Cranberry Twp. This is only 2 weeks from when you receive this newsletter. This continues to be our major fundraiser for the year. Are you or have you done your part to help support your snowmobile club? While most of the tickets have been handed out, there are still a lot of monies that need turned in before the Bash. Please make sure to sell your allotment of tickets or let Scott & Sandy or Jim & Cathy know where you stand with your sales. We need to try our best and sell ALL tickets this year.
Ginny and the Charity Committee ask all member’s to contribute to the “Bags, Boxes, and Baskets” Chinese auction. The following is included at their request:
We still need items, complete baskets, gift cards and lottery tickets.
Complete Baskets; LIST ITEMS IN BASKETS , TYPE OF BASKET, AND WHEN I CAN EXPECT IT.
Gift Cards: PLEASE SEND THESE TO JONI EASTLEY OR TO ME ASAP.
LOTTERY TICKETS: MAIL asap TO ME
BASKET ITEMS: I WOULD LIKE THESE BEFORE THE NEXT MEETING. IT TAKES TIME TO ASSEMBLE THE FINISHED PRODUCT.
DONATIONS OF CASH! MAIL TO ME.
Thank you to Jim Wright and Dave Ford for the cash donations at the last meeting. Also thanks to Scott & Tina Thomas, Doug & Debbie Kyes, Loretta & Sandy, and my husband (who doesn’t realize how much he has donated so far) and to the many friends that have given me so much stuff.
We have a basket with a Kindle e-reader, a large Pittsburgh Pirate Basket, and lots of items to fill baskets. Thanks Sue, June & Bill, Audrey , and Scott & Tina’s Mothers.
Joni and I couldn’t do this without your help.
Please be sure and set some time aside and help out with these auction item’s, and of course, with your own ticket sales. We will once again make our 4th Annual Cash Bash a success, and thank you all in advance!
Norb and the House Committee awarded Room #1 to Ken & Sherry Kelly and Room #5 to James Carr. This is your notice that Room #19 is available. Please let Norb or committee know if you would like this room for your use. Thank you Norb and Committee!
On clubhouse issues, the kitchen exhaust fan was repaired, thank you Rich & Lenny. The upstairs ladies room nears completion with the wall mirror purchased from Don’s Glass and installed Trout Weekend. It look’s awesome. We will continue to look for a glass shower door, however, this seems to be a high dollar item due to it’s custom size. Thank you to all involved in it’s remodeling!
It was decided to move forward with the metal roof for the garage. Please think about color and a decision will be made at May’s meeting.
We had a good turnout for Trout Season opener on April 12th, with limited co-operation from the trout. It was good to see activity at the clubhouse and some much needed yard work and sprucing up accomplished. Also, as in years past, the clubhouse was used by Highland Township Saturday afternoon for tax collection. While cleaning up the yard, Sandy Harris found a set of keys with 3 Theodore house key’s along with a camp gas pump key and another Master lock key. Are they yours?
May should be our last indoor Monthly meeting at the Harmony Moose, that is, if we can get someone to host our Summer Meeting schedule, which is normally June, July, and August and, in recent years, September. Please consider hosting a meeting this summer.
In close, please consider running for office on May 1st. it is your chance to make a difference!
See you then!
Mark & Sandy
