President’s Message – December 2018
“How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?” – Dr. Seuss
This passage by Dr. Seuss resonated with me with the realization I’m coming to the end of my first year as your President. Even though time has gone by quickly, it’s been a satisfying year for me. Thanks to our management team and all of you, my job has been easy. During 2018 we’ve added several new members to the club; enjoyed interesting and inspiring speakers; and had a lot of fun at our social and Out and About events. Now we get to celebrate December with two fun events: our White Christmas party on Dec. 5th and our member meeting on December 7. We won’t have a speaker on the 7th but we will have a short presentation about a potential (and exciting) 2019 PROBUS wine tour of the Okanagan. The rest of the meeting will give us a chance to visit with each other and enjoy yummy Christmas treats. If you feel like it, wear something seasonal such as an ugly or not so ugly Christmas sweater.
If I don’t see you at either the Christmas party or the Dec member meeting, I wish you a joyful and safe holiday season.
