As another Labor Day weekend ends, it is hard to believe our leagues and season are winding down. I’d like to thank all our 2023 volunteers for your contributions to our Chapter. We hope you responded to your invitation to this year’s Volunteer Outing on Saturday, 9/9, where we look forward to acknowledging those efforts.
We are also very excited about our Season Closer on Saturday, October 14. which we will be combining with our Play for P.I.N.K event. I’m hopeful we will have a great turnout and am excited to support this great cause to help lessen the bane of breast cancer. Registration will be open soon. If you’re available to help us with this event, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attendance at our annual Holiday Party has been gradually decreasing over the past few years. To help us provide an event that more members would want to attend (maybe something other than our traditional party) we will be sending a survey later this month asking for your feedback, that will allow us to offer an event that YOU would prefer.
As a final reminder, voting on the Chapter’s proposed new bylaws supporting a reduced board model closes on Wednesday. This new model requires fewer dedicated Board Members and provides opportunities for more members to help with events, membership, leagues, marketing, etc. Please let us know how you’d like to help the Chapter going forward.
That’s it for now. Hope to see you all on the course- Fall golf is amazing!!
