Note from the President and Secretary

Note from the Pres.

September 2018

Welcome all to the beginning of our fall season. Also a special welcome to the 90+ new members, that joined us this last summer. I have had the pleasure to meet and talk to most of you. To those who have not been greeted by me, I encourage you to introduce yourselves. I would also encourage the new members to introduce themselves to other members and to volunteer for any of the activities that are occurring at our Club. Getting involved is a great way to meet other members and share in the Club experience.

Regarding our volunteers, we are setting up a program to recognize a “Volunteer of the Year”. Details will be forthcoming within the next couple of months. Volunteers are a very important part of our Club. We want to do a little something to recognize and reward one of our members for their contributions. Start thinking of the person that you feel is a contributor to this Club and look for details in the coming month of how to submit them for this award.

Your Club has been adding many new activities and events. All of these are done for the enjoyment of our members. We would like feedback from you, regarding these events. We would also like your suggestions on any new events or changes in current events that you feel would enhance the Club experience.

Thank You for making this the best club in the area. I look forward to seeing you at THE BAC

Secretary's Newsletter Sept.-Dec. 2018

Since our last newsletter we have lost three members John Norman, Denny Arnold and Al Leighty. They will be missed by our members.

It’s that time of year again. Oct. 1st, I will start accepting dues for 2019. Cost is $30.00 for dues and $5.00 for FOB fee maintenance. $5.00 for Gold Card Members. Reminder, if you are a gold card member and do not pay your $5.00 before March 1st, your name chip will be removed from the drawing bin until you are paid and currant, some Gold card members may owe more then one year.

The Board is going to name someone this December meeting for volunteer of the year. At the November meeting we will put out a envelope and nomination forms for members to fill out and nominate a candidate for this award. At the December board meeting the Board will go through the candidates and announce the winner at the general meeting in December. Employees like bartenders, managers and board members are not eligible for nomination.

If you have moved or changed your phone number and have not contacted me with the new information, please let me know so that we can keep our records currant. Thank you.

We have 8 pasta dinners starting October 1st and continuing the first Monday of every month through May. I would appreciate a couple of volunteers to help fill in when the regular crew members are on vacation. If you would like to help, contact Gary Schoester.

We could also use some help on our Steak Fry Dinners. These dinners are the third Thursday of every month. If you would like to help, contact Danielle and she will help get you assigned to a job.

Minimal has a growing local following, and we are excited to bring them back to the BAC for one of our biggest parties of the year.
