This is being done again by your President so it is simple and basic, i.e., no jokes, but there are photos from the Holiday Luncheon included.
We have a new Treasurer, Jim Brink. Jim Brink volunteered and will start the first of the year. Jim has been a member since 2003. We thank Joan for her excellent work as our treasurer. She was excellent at dealing with Wells Fargo in keeping our bank fees to a minimum. Welcome, Jim.
Additionally, our first meeting of 2022 will occur on Wednesday, January 5, 2022, at the Scottsdale Granite Reef Senior Center. The meeting start time is 1:00 pm, club business will take place at 1:45 pm, and our speaker will begin at 2:00 pm.
