I had looked forward to someday serving on

the CVC Board in order to repay the club for

all the good times it has provided to Jan and

me. Well, lo and behold, thanks to votes

from a lot of you good people I got on the

board sooner than I expected. And thanks to

the revised by-laws I went right to the

Presidency without any board experience.

We’ll see how that works out, but I will do my

best to perform the duties of the office at the

high level set by all our past presidents.

I’m not the only newbie on the board. Mike

Lebda (Treasurer), Dick Danielsen (VP-Public

Relations and Membership) and Debby

Anderson (Secretary) are also first-timers.

Skip Severance (VP-Activities) has served and

will provide a good source of corporate

knowledge. Also serving the club this year

are Craig Hansen (Parliamentarian), Chuck

Laningham (Sergeant-at-Arms) and Susan

Walker (Raffle). Charlie Fosnaugh will

continue his outstanding job on the club

newsletter.

As Craig said in his initial President’s letter

two years ago “one of my first thoughts was

where to go on the President’s Mystery

Run” Ditto for me! Craig came up with a

couple of great trips and set the bar pretty

high so I’ve got my work cut out for me. I’ve

got some ideas swirling around in my head

and I hope I come up with an experience

you will enjoy. I did like the last Mystery

Run that was 5 days and on weekdays. Feel

free to give me inputs on what you think of

that concept.

Once again the Christmas Party and the

Christmas Hay Ride were great successes

and enjoyed by all who went. Many thanks

for all the work done by Chuck and Sharon

Hall on the party and Charlotte Renna on

the hay ride. I can’t wait to do it all over

again in 2015. I am also looking forward to

the CVC Picnic on May 3 rd which I missed

last year because of my mother’s death.

Thanks in advance to the Kroekers for

hosting this fun event.

As this new board begins its journey we can

look to the past and all the great folks who

served before for inspiration (and guidance

if needed). Last month Craig went over the

accomplishments of the club in the last year

which included increased membership and

runs, an electronic newsletter, revised bylaws

and more. Working together we can

continue this positive trend and make a

great club even greater.

From Jan, myself (and Sheryl) we wish

everyone a prosperous and Happy New

Year!
