Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!
Welcome to 2018!!! I for one am not sorry to see 2017 end, in many ways it was a very trying year.
I'm hoping for better in 2018! I hope you all had a grand holiday in whatever form you celebrate (or
none at all) and you were able to spend time with family and friends and loved ones, sharing good times
and making happy memories. And I hope you all came through the freezes in December without any damage.
It took a while to get here, but winter finally arrived (at least for a little while).
The election has concluded and we have a new slate of officers: Doug Klotter, J.A. "Tinker" Lammert,
and yours truly - Robin Preston. Our first ExComm meeting will be held on January 20 at 1 in the
afternoon at the Village Inn off of Magnolia. If you would care to have some input into upcoming events,
group outing locations, or would just like to see your ExComm in action, please feel free to join us,
the meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend and we would be delighted to get your input.
I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Pat Wickman for her service for the past two years. I
enjoyed working with her and getting to know her. I would also like to extend my sincere thanks to Doug
Klotter for stepping up to serve. This organization relies on volunteers - if we have no one willing to
volunteer, the group would cease to exist and we would likely be made part of some distant chapter. So
I am very, very grateful that there are others willing to spend a small amount of their free time for
the good of the group to keep us alive and well and viable. We couldn't do it without you. So from the
bottom of my heart, thank you thank you thank you. If anyone else would like to become more active and
volunteer to help out from time to time, you would be warmly welcomed.
