Club President's Message
Our next meeting will be the Newcomers Outdoor Summer Celebration at Creekside Park, Rotary Shelter, 1821 Old Airport Road on Saturday, June 12th from 4:00 PM to 8 PM. You need to register with Cindy Harrington or Joanne Bogle no later than June 5th. The flyer and registration form are on our website. As we do with all events, we will continue to follow NC COVID guidelines at all times and I remind everyone that we are not permitted for alcohol.
Our last meeting was held on a beautiful Sunday afternoon at Union Point. We began the day with an icebreaker game that got folks interacting with others and we had a fun challenging trivia game. That was followed by our speaker from the Craven County Parks and Recreation. We received an update from Randy Bogle our Activity Director and Randy had the Activity Leaders that were present update what was happening within their specific activity.
As my term as President is coming to a close, I want to thank all of the board members, activity leaders and members for hanging in there during this challenging year. Our goal as a board was to keep things going safely. As things get back to normal, hopefully soon, we can again move indoors.
At the Newcomers Outdoor Summer Celebration, we will introduce the 2021 – 2022 Board Members and Activity Leaders.
