President’s Address – April 2021

Hello Members, 

I hope you are well and that many of you are receiving your vaccinations and bouncing back from a very different year.  During this Pandemic it was my goal to keep our people active and engaged as much as we possibly could, and we achieved that in several ways.  I am thankful for our Chair People and the members and children for participating and making the best of strange times. 

We are on our way and I am so happy communicate some good news to all of you!  The news is that we are getting back to what we once called normal with a “Schedule of Events”! 

Please save the dates and more info will be coming! 

Club Annual General Membership Meeting – Tuesday, May 4 – Austrian Village 

The meeting will be held at the Austrian Village and they will only be open for our members that evening.  Food and beverages will be available for purchase from a limited menu beginning at 5:30 pm.  The meeting will follow at approximately 7 pm.  Please RSVP to Nichole Deely if you will attend and purchase dinner so we can let the AV know an approximate number and they can plan accordingly.  Again, they are closed on Tuesday evenings and are just opening for our private event.

Annual Kirchweih – Saturday, September 25- Phoenix Sport Club, Feasterville, PA
