Presidents Message by Jim Buelow October, 2019
|Jim and Rich making Wine|
Hello Dogwood Family, hope all is well with all of you. Susan and I are recently back from the Wine Rally at Shenandoah Crossing followed by the Penn Coachmen/Dogwood combined Rally at Harper’s Ferry, and we had a great time at both rallies. Thanks to our hosts and to all who attended and assisted. More on these rallies under Rally Master article.
Now for some Dogwood business. Many of the items we need to cover are included in other articles in this newsletter, so my message will be brief. Please take the time to read and enjoy the articles and thanks again to Paul Cummings for producing a great newsletter.
As we near the end of 2019, we still have two rallies coming up. Urbanna Oyster Festival on October 31 to November 3, and the Christmas Rally at Americamps on December 5-8. More info under Rally Master Report. Please join us.
During the Christmas Rally we have several administrative items to take care of. The annual audit of our Treasurer is due, and we need 3 volunteers to act as an Audit Committee. This is not a difficult task and only takes about an hour. Please contact me if you are willing to sign up. I would also like to meet with the Executive Board on Friday for a short meeting, and following that, a meeting with Paul Cummings, Pat Allen, and Jean Herbert to do a membership reconciliation.
And as is usual at our Christmas Rally, we plan rallies for the upcoming year. Please bring your ideas on locations, dates, activities, and a willingness to host or co host a rally for 2020. It takes a little work, but it is not painful, and it’s very satisfying to see it all come together. Let’s “GET ER DONE”.
Hope to see you at Urbanna or Americamps and thanks for all you do.
Regards and SAFE travels
