Due to the uncertainties caused by Health Department Orders related to COVID-19, the Christmas Dinner Dance and winter meeting have been canceled. It is suggested that A Teams conduct a local operation instead.
The fall meeting was well attended.
Among other things, we voted to disband the scholarship committee and to make an annual donation to the Vassar High School Athletic Association in honor of Michael May. The last raffle was conducted earlier this year, after working around difficulties with ticket sales due to the Governor’s Executive Orders. First place was $300 won by Kylie Strange. Second place was $200 won by Bill Matthews. Third place was $100 won by Craig Newberry. Congratulations winners! Thank you to all of you who purchased tickets to support honoring Michael May.
VP Sherd announced that he would be reassigning team members and posting new team rosters using an updated email list. In the meantime, if you would like to be doing something with your team, please let your current team leader know.
