HENDERSON CREEK CLUB NEWSLETTER
The board wishes to thank everyone in Henderson Creek Club for all you do for the club. We have many supporters, most are our members but we also have many hard working people who are guests and seasonal visitors and so we also would like to thank them for all they do. We have accomplished some positive things for the club this year and the building and grounds are looking very good. We still have a few more things to do. Our entrance sign will be repaired by “Signs by Crannie”, as we have received our insurance check. Our Standing Committees are in need of new people with new ideas. Anyone who wishes to serve on the Building and Grounds, Finance, Membership, and Social and Entertainment committees should contact any board member. We can always use help with the Tour of Duty committee. Speaking of board members, our new slate of directors voted in at the Annual Meeting is as follows: President- Joyce Berkoski, Vice President and Treasurer- Bill Harris, Secretary- Denise Beckley, and Donna Ruble and Jorge Fuentes as Directors. On the financial front, we would like to see an increase in membership and also an increase in attendance at our fundraisers. We are facing some new expenditures in the next few years. We will be refurbishing the shuffleboard courts, replacing an air conditioner in the back card room. The boat parking lot is in need of resealing and the plate glass window in the front door entry needs replacing. There has not been a dues increase for our membership in 5 years and the board has voted to increase the dues for 2015, by $25.00. We lost 10 members this year due to nonrenewal of their membership and people that have passed away. We lost Bill Cole, Paul Julian, Joy Iannotta and Rose Briggs this past year and they will be sorely missed. We still have room in the boatyard for additional members, so if you know someone who would be interested, please have them contact any board member. Our upcoming events are: Lasagna Dinner and Pancake Breakfast on Sat.Feb.22. Mar 2nd will be our Brunch and Fashion Show featuring our own members modeling clothing from “Anthonys Apparel” . Mar.16th will be our St Patrick’s Day Dinner and Dance and will feature the band “Legends of Las Vegas”, they will be playing music from the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.The Spaghetti Dinner will be on Mar. 22nd and April Fools Fun Day will be on Apr 29th. As always, you need to sign up for all events so the committees can properly plan. Just a few reminders- please return your boatyard renewal application to the club. You can mail it to 18 Sonderhen Circle, Naples, Fl. 34114 or drop it in the mail slot at the club’s office. Our next Board meeting will be on Mar. 4th at 5:30 pm. Please remember to check the hendersoncreek.com website for any updated information. Our Henderson Creek Club Shuffleboard team reports they are in 6th place in the standings. Pam and Kevin Dwyer are the captains this year. We ask that you consider playing shuffleboard on their team for next year. It is fun and they have a great group of players. A few reminders for members and their guests. When going to and from the pool, we ask that you enter and exit through the side gates. Also, there are to be no “untrained” children in the pool and spa. The minimum age for children in the spa is 15 . This will insure the safety of our children as well as the adults. Please check the outside events board as well as the inside bulletin board for all functions and sign up sheets for our events, Hope to see everyone at the club.
