... a word from our President!

We held our Annual Meeting in November

with the main business being the election

of board officers for 2016. Incumbents

elected for a second term were myself for

president, Skip Severance VP/Activities,

Debby Anderson/Secretary and Mike

Lebda/Treasurer. Charlotte Renna is our

new VP/Public Relations. Many thanks to

Dick Danielson for his service this past

year as VP/Public Relations. Dick brought

a new humorous way to look at birthdays

and did an outstanding job performing the

various tasks required to maintain the

membership records. I am sure that

Charlotte, with all her past board

experience, will also do a great job. I also

would like to thank the other board

members, Skip, Debby and Mike. There is

a lot of behind the scenes work required

to keep the club business running

smoothly and they willingly stepped up to

the plate to get things done. Their efforts

were directly responsible for the great

year we had in 2015. Also, thanks to

Charlie Fosnaugh for producing our

wonderful newsletter and coordinating

everything needed to get our new club

shirts and jackets.

I guess this has turned into the “thank

you” letter. It’s been a busy year and

many members contributed by

putting on runs and events. You are

too numerous to mention but the club

wouldn’t exist without your hard

work. Thanks also to my special

helpers. Chuck Laningham has been a

very disciplined Sergeant At Arms.

Although he was temporarily demoted

to Corporal he quickly got his rank

back and just may be in line for a

promotion. Craig Hansen served as

Parliamentarian and ensured our

election process ran smoothly and per

the by-laws. Susan Walker took over

the raffle process with a bang. It

seems like we broke a record for raffle

money collected every meeting. Last

but not least, thanks to my beautiful

bride, Jan, for being our Sunshine and

Clouds lady. She delivered the news

of the club, happy and sad, in a

delightful way. I’m happy to say that

they have all signed up for another

year.

I would also like to commend the

membership in general for the support

they have shown for the club.

Participation by members is crucial to

the success of a club like ours and by

putting on runs, going on runs and

coming to meetings you have helped

make CVC the success that it is.

Jan and I are looking forward to seeing

you at the Christmas Party and

Hayride. It’s always special to

celebrate with our CVC family.

See you all at the next meeting.


for dues is 12/15/2015 or you will be

collected $1.75 in badge fees. Sunshine and

Clouds report was given by Jan Pflepsen.

orders for Club jackets and they are almost

ready. He will pick them up this weekend

and you can get them from him or wait for
