Kim Fosnaugh and Debbie Anderson and lining

up for Treasurer are Terry Anderson and Mike

Lebda.

November 18th is not only our regular monthly

meeting, it is also our annual business meeting.

It is the time of year we elect new officers based

on your vote. Two prerequisites in being able to

vote, aside from being a member in good

standing, is that 1) you must attend the business

meeting to cast your ballot and 2) you cannot

have missed more than 4 meetings this year.

While these conditions sound modest, it is

troubling to examine the attendance records and

see that barely half the club is eligible to

participate in the election. While 44 people have

met the criteria, an astounding 42 members have

missed at least 5 of the last 10 meetings. Most of

them a lot more than five and several have not

attended a meeting at all this year. Most of us

realize CVC is a social club, but as your outgoing

president, I would ask everyone to set a goal of

making at least 6 of the first 10 meetings in 2015

so that you can participate in the democratic

process.

With that said, here is your 2015 ballot. We have

multiple candidates running for each office with

the one exception. Your candidates for President

are Andy Anderson and Gary Pfelpsen, Skip

Severance is running unopposed as Vice-

President of Activities, Dick Danielsen faces off

against Jan DeMello-Pflepsen for Vice-President

of Public Relations, running for Secretary are

On a couple of other fronts, about 30% of you

have renewed your membership dues for next

year. That’s pretty good considering the notices

only went out at the October meeting. Dues are

streaming in on a regular basis, so hopefully just

about everyone will have paid by the November

18th due date.

Don’t forget the annual CVC Christmas party is

Thursday, December 11th. So far 58 people

have signed up and 36 have paid the $24.00 per

couple tab. The club is chipping in up to $2,500

which will cover about 70% of the overall cost of

the evening. It would be great if you could

make any outstanding payments by the

November 18th meeting. Based on past

experience, we estimate an additional 6 to 10

members will sign up which should push

attendance in the 64 to 68 range. We have also

sent a written invitation to our club sponsor Ed

Dena and his wife. CVC also thanked them for

their support the past couple of years and asked

Ed if he would be interested in sponsoring the

club next year.

In closing, please start thinking about any runs

you would like to put together for next year.

With the exception of the annual CVC picnic at

Kroekerville on Sunday May 3rd, 2015, the

calendar is wide open. At this point we only

have three events on the schedule with the

Laton High School Senior Night on November

7th, the Christmas party on December 11th and

the Christmas hayride and dinner on December

14th. See you on November 18th and if you are

eligible, don’t forget to vote early, but not

often.

SUNSHINE & CLOUDS

Charlotte Renna for

Jan De Mello-Pflepsen

Oct. 21, 2014

Jan & Gary are on vacation. They went to Malaga, or some exotic place

such as Croatia. Jan asked me to fill her shoes, which I suspected, but

now know is not possible. Charlie helped me out by sending a CVC

group email, just like Jan sends and not one person responded (because

he forgot to send it out!). This called for desperate measures. Not

wanting to disappoint Jan, I did what any decent replacement would do.

I stuck my nose in your business. Most information was too shocking to

reveal. I will share a few tidbits.

1. Remember that lovely party we all went to last year for Mike & Diane’s

(fake) anniversary. The truth is, they are not married. Just waiting to

see if it will work out for them.

2. Connie & Andy are pregnant. They have about a million grand

daughters’, decided to try for a boy.

3. Our new members, Glenn, Lorraine, Mike & Lynne are undercover

agents from the Porsche Club. Their corvettes are rented. CVC is under

investigation to see how and why we have so much fun.

4. Debbie and Linda went on a cruise with a group of friends. Included in

the package price they got a quickie divorce. They thought it was too

good to pass up.

5. One last item....Susan is a fake. No one can make pizza that great in

their kitchen. She must have bought it at some very special pizza party.

That is all I have at this time. Pretty sure this will be the last time I will be

asked to this.


Oh, and here’s some last minute additions (from the meeting);

Ed Kroeker is recovering slowly.

Roy Whitson is having a heart procedure this week.

Ruthie Danielsen is having a procedure in the next week.

Skip & Leigh Ann are on vacation in Hawaii, having a wonderful time

on Harleys.

David Son’s dad is slowly recovering from heart surgery.

Keith Garrison is having a pace maker installed.

Kim Fosnaugh is having back surgery in December – fusion of 2 discs.

The best kind of people are the ones that come into your life and

make you see the Sun where you once saw Clouds. The people that

believe in you so much, you start to believe in you too. The people

that love you simply for being you. The once in a lifetime kind of

people!
