2024 Report makes gains

We didn’t quite make our goal but we are over $44,000 for the 2024 Report! Way to go, everyone.  Now let’s wrap up any outstanding payments.

Technology Help Requested

Members – as we continue to provide remote meeting access to our members, the challenges of this technology linking have become more complex and we could use more assistance from members. As chair of our public relations committee, I am asking for volunteers to help build a process and the technology to really make this an asset for all of club and a better experience for our remote members. Please email me if you can help and be part of this success!  bsullivan@shanercorp.com

Thought for the Week:

“Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”
