June 1, 2021 - There is nothing that we can have at the club as of this date. Hopefully that will change soon.
May 28, 2021 - Message from our Interim President
To all members
As you may be aware, Phil Lee had recently stepped down as our Club President for personal reasons and at the Board meeting held on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, I was elected as Interim Club President
I want to take this opportunity to thank Phil for his service as Club President. Phil dedicated himself tirelessly in his role as President and spent countless hours working for the betterment of the Club. Phil will remain as Past President on the Board. Thank you Phil.
The Covid pandemic has created a tremendous amount of disruption in our society and in our personal lives. As you know, as per AHS guidelines, our Club has been shut down for a very long time and this has had a negative effect on our members. The Board had voted to suspend membership fees but I think we would all rather be back together in the club socializing and paying our membership fees.
Communication within any organization is often challenging but vitally important and I believe that the pandemic has really brought to light just how important communication is.
As I stated earlier, I am serving as the Interim President until we can organize an annual General meeting for the early fall where we can have elections for a new Board of Directors. I would encourage any of you who have an interest in serving on the Board to come forward at the appropriate time.
Our Board will be meeting again in late June2021 to continue the planning process for the AGM. In addition, we will be keeping an eye on the ever changing AHS guidelines with respect to a Club re-opening.
We will do our best to keep you informed over the next few months.
Interim Club President
Board of Directors as of May 26, 2021
May 1 - Covid Announcement from President Phil
As we head into May there hasn't been any improvement in the COVID status for Beaumont which means the Club remains closed to club activities.
Joyce has resigned as VP but remains on the Board until Sept. Jim Dunbar volunteered to assume the VP position until the next election. A motion was passed by the Board to appoint Jim as rhe VP. It is fortuitous, in that I will be moving to Sherwood Park May 15th having another signing officer will make Jacks life a bit easier.
I will remain on as President until June.
David continues to watch over the Club doing repairs as needed and as I understand it, has several people willing to spruce up the flowerbeds.
With the nice weather I hope you all take the time to smell the roses :)
