August means a new year for the Huntington Woods Men’s Club. As the incoming President, I am proud to be part of our new Board which includes three new members and three veteran members. I am also proud of the many accomplishments we have made over the years pursuing Our Mission – serving Our Community.
I am also excited by the opportunities we have to improve on our many accomplishments this year. Our Membership of 155 Members, including 28 new Members from the Auction, has never been larger. This year, I will do my best to reach out to every Member with friendship to encourage you to volunteer. I would also encourage everyone to support our Membership by paying your dues promptly. As always, your $75 annual dues are due in August. This money supports all of our internal activities including our monthly General Membership meetings, the Holiday Party and Summer Blast for new Members, which is set for September 11, 2015.
I encourage everyone to share your ideas on how to make the Men’s Club better, including discussing your ideas about projects, fundraising and events. Please bring your friends and neighbors to attend a General Meeting. Our upcoming events include the Summer Blast and October Cider Sale. Our 2016 Men’s Club Service Auction will take place on March 19, 2016 and, as always, is an “all hands on deck” event. As always, the Auction funds a significant Community Project which has recently included the Scoring System for the Community Pool, restoring the playground equipment at Burton Elementary School, and funding the city-wide tree programs and recycle bin programs. These are enduring projects that make our community a better place to live.
So, here is to a wonderful new year.
President, Men’s Club
