As we approach Spring and warmer weather, we have been able to get some great Tours lined up and are putting together Presentations for the upcoming General Meetings. The Picnic Committee is holding meetings now to plan for the June 2nd Annual Club Picnic. TAP is busy getting systems ready to give to Youths that are in need. FLS has been beyond busy with the number of Members that are in need of help.
As can easily be seen, there is a small group of people working to help others; but, can’t we get anyone else to step up and give us a hand?
It is as easy to give help as it is to accept it; it only takes some small measure of care for others and a will to offer a bit of time.
We need a Secretary now! Ginnie agreed to stay on while we get someone, but this cannot be open ended. We need a volunteer to step up and take on this responsibility. The position requires only about 6-8 hours a month to attend and record the minutes for two meetings: the monthly Board Meeting and General meeting. Also, some infrequent and incidental jobs include getting cards out to members who are ill or grieving and updating some lists from time to time. All of the functions require but simple office skills and a willingness to serve.
I would like to thank all our Club volunteers: those in TAP, who perform the functions necessary to deliver refurbished computer systems to deserving children and help realize the empowering gift of future potential to so many deserving students; those in FLS and Mac SIG, who benefit our members directly through personal technical advice and hands-on assistance in order to enhance our members experience with their own devices; those in Tours, who arrange and coordinate visits to some highly informational venues for members’ benefit and enjoyment; those in Membership and Grant Writing, who are so vital to securing the funds necessary for the Club to operate and make everything else possible; those on Standing and Special Committees and other volunteers (Meeting Hosts, Picnic, Communications, TellicoLife Admins, and members of the Board), without whose continual efforts the Club could not succeed. Only through this collective volunteer effort can we succeed and provide benefit for our Members and the larger Community. Thank you all!
I encourage all members to become more active in the Club to assure its vitality and survival.
