A Message From Your President

November / December 2018

Well, it looks like Winter is coming!

Come into the Center to warm-up and try a different class or activity. Sometimes we all need a change, and you’ll most likely find new friends. While you’re here, try our lunches. You must pre-register on Copilot by Wednesday of the previous week. We can help you through this if you’re not familiar with it.

And while the end of the year is approaching, just a reminder that your membership is for the calendar year. So in December we will start taking renewals and new members for 2019! Don’t let your membership lapse - if you do, you’ll need to pay non-member prices for classes and activities, and you will no longer receive the Newsletter.

We’ve had some great programs and presentations, Lunch & Learns, and health screenings by Grand View Health. You’ll continue to see more programs in the Winter, but we may scale back a little due to that four letter word - S N O W ! If you have thoughts on new and different programs or presentations, please see Debbie.

As the end of the year approaches, you’ll notice we’re not having elections for the Executive Board. The BCARSC Board has voted to change the ByLaws to have elections in the Spring, so that the new Executive Board takes office at the start of the fiscal year, which is July 1 through June 30 every year. Also, the BCARSC Board voted to change the ByLaws, eliminating term lengths. Both were then approved, effective immediately, which was September 26, 2018. Look forward to nominations in April 2019, and the elections in May 2019.

Two last items to mention here - First, I have two volunteers for the new Hospitality Committee. These folks, and more I hope, will talk with prospective members about the Center and all of our offerings, and once a member, these volunteers will follow-up with them a month or so after they joined, to make sure they are satisfied with why they joined. There will be more to this committee, so please stop me and ask more questions. Second, The Annual Holiday Cash Raffle will take place Sunday afternoon on November 18 at 1:30. Buy your tickets now, and then come early, grab a seat, and hope you win a $100 prize or the grand prize of $500! Only 250 tickets were printed, and they’re going fast! All details are on flyers posted in the Center.

Check the back page of the Newsletter for where to find information if you believe the weather may affect the Center being open. I hope to see you around the Center when it’s safe to travel this Winter!
