Thoughts From Your President
It’s unbelievable this will be the last letter I write to you as President. The year has really flown by. I’m so grateful for all the positivity and support provided by so many of our members.
We have had lots of decisions to make, and not all have been popular, in order to keep you safe as we continue to experience the constant change of the Coronavirus. I deeply appreciate every one of you who have chosen to support our Club and the programs presented at our monthly luncheons.
Before the October luncheon was held, I received a call asking how soon I would make a decision about canceling the November luncheon, as the decorating committee wanted enough notice if a cancellation would happen. The thought of canceling had not crossed my mind, but this call made me realize this might be a possibility. Not only were we successful in meeting our needed number of reservations for the October luncheon, but the numbers increased for November and were even higher for December. This shows we can count on our members to come through when needed. I have no doubt the remainder of our luncheons will also be successful in meeting our needed number of attendees to cover our expenses.
At times we receive comments about the food provided by the Radisson. Some comments are positive and others just the opposite. Since we received quite a few negative comments about the food this past fall, our Program chairs met with the catering staff and came up with alternatives to what we have offered in the past. You will see these options listed in this issue. Since sandwiches and wraps tend to be less expensive than a protein, salad and sides, we now have the added excitement to offer a dessert. I hope you like the new changes, but if not, please do not hesitate to contact me so we can make any needed changes.
Have you ever wanted to become more active in our Club? We are always looking for members to take an active role in our leadership positions. Each year we have members who rotate out of their roles as we look forward to having new members step up to bring their talents to our Board. If you would like any additional information about open positions, please give me a call.
Our current club year has been challenging and inspiring. I have greatly enjoyed working with our Board Members and all the Volunteers who share their talents and enthusiasm to make our club the very best it can be!
Thank you to everyone who stepped up and contributed to the success of our club.
Margaret Kaltefleiter, UC President 2021-2022
