We had our Work Party Day, where our volunteers spruced up the club facilities. It is beginning to look like the holidays, the club is decorated and looks very festive. Our Thanksgiving dinner was well attended. Our veterans were honored at our November board meeting. We will be having a Spaghetti dinner, Christmas dinner, and New Year’s Day dinner, so please remember to sign up. All the members currently serving on committees deserve our thanks and appreciation. It is often a thankless task involving many hours. Without their efforts we would not have the club we have today. I would also like to remind everyone that our dues notices were sent out. If you did not receive one, please contact Bill Harris or myself and we will be sure to get one sent to you. For those of you who will be leaving for the upcoming holiday and those of you who have not yet made it down to Naples, I wish you safe travels. We look forward to seeing everyone at the Club. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Joyce Berkoski, President Building and Grounds Committee: We had a very successful “work day”. The shutters and front door were painted. Power washing was done. Faucet in kitchen and paper towel holder were replaced. We are in the process of replacing the pump for the solar heater. We have made several attempts to get the sign people to check a seam on the sign, along with the water that doesn’t light up. It was discovered that a filter was broken and has been replaced. Again, we ask that no one fill the pool or the spa. The pool people are here three times a week and they need to address the water levels. ================================================= Tour of Duty: Roseanne has been provided us with an updated list of membership and is working on the new tour of duty schedule. Membership: Joyce mentioned we are losing a social member as he is selling his boat, and we have the possibility of 1 new member and 1 new social member. New membership dues invoices were mailed to the members who are not here yet. The members that are here had their invoices hand delivered. Again, everyone is encouraged to check our website ** HendersonCreek.com (http://hendersoncreek.com) for regular updates and newsletters. Also, the bulletin board for sign up sheets for functions.
