Welcome back from our June hiatus, during which many of our members enjoyed a top notch outbound International Exchange to Leuven, Belgium and Freiburg, Germany Friendship Force clubs. A big Thank You to our Exchange Director Gin Meyers for a job well done! We are looking for ED’s for our 2017 Incoming Exchange from them and Austin, Texas to return the favors of the excellent Exchanges we’ve enjoyed with them this year. Please contact me or Carol Tatum if you feel like showing your appreciation.
Your votes for our 2018 Outbound International Exchange request to FFI have been tabulated. See the voting results in the following pages. Thank you to the 30 members who gave us your preferences. Your Board will use this valuable feedback for our requests to Atlanta this year.
Due to anticipated congestion in Hillcrest during our regularly scheduled 3rd Saturday General Meeting on July 16, we are going to do something different for our July meeting. We’re having a potluck picnic on Sunday, July 24th at the Spreckels Park
in Coronado, Bring your own drinks, games and chairs or a blanket to setup at 4:00 pm for lawn games and a short meeting about our upcoming Inbound Exchanges. Also please bring a summer potluck food item to share at 5:00 pm. And at 6:00 pm, enjoy the free ABBA concert
in the park!
We’ve had very positive feedback about our New Members’ Orientation Meeting in May, which resulted in a New Member, Janyce Kamahele, joining us. Welcome Janyce! A few of our Members (noted in the following pages) have met with some misfortune recently. Please come alongside these friends to help buoy their spirits. Finally, I am deeply grateful for the overwhelming responses of our members for our Silent Auction Fun-draiser at our May General Meeting. Thank You to all who donated! Your generosity raised $715 for our club’s future Fun activities!
