President’s Message … Margaret Schieck

Here we are in November and the days grow colder and the nights become darker!  It seems like it happened abruptly.  I hope you remembered to turn your clocks back on Sunday, November 5th, as Daylight Savings Time ended at 2 a.m. that day.  Personally, I turned ours back on Saturday night as I didn’t intend to be up at 2:00 a.m.

Veterans Day is on Saturday, November 11th.  Remember to thank the Veterans you know and to honor those whom you may not know.

Our Chapter’s annual anniversary luncheon will be held at Jack’s this year. See Lynda Martinez’s notice for details.  Guests are welcome to attend.  All payments must be made in advance as no money will be accepted at the door.  Checks can be brought to the November and December meetings or payment in cash also.  The cost is $36 per person.

I hope to have more detailed information regarding our participation in the Campbell Area Christmas Toy Drive and wrapping before the November meeting.  Also, please see Paul’s column regarding a switch in speakers for this meeting and the one in February.

I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving.  I will be giving thanks for all of you and especially for Chapter 5151’s executive board, committee chairs, and all other volunteers.  You make my life much easier and enjoyable.
