January Newsletter

Dear Members:

Happy New Year!! We had 26 members at our December meeting.  Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, January 8th at the Catholic War Veterans’ on Center Street in Pine Bush at 7:30 pm.  Membership renewals and new memberships will be accepted.  If you have not renewed yet, this will be your last newsletter.

The Christmas Party has been confirmed for Saturday, January 11th at the Shawangunk Fire House on Bruynswick Road in Wallkill starting at 5pm with appetizers; dinner will be served at 6pm. The Club will be providing Italian-themed entrees and non-alcoholic beverages. Feel free to BYOB. Attendees are asked to bring either an appetizer or a dessert. Please note that you must have already renewed your club membership to attend the party.

NYSSA Super Raffle Tickets are still available.  These tickets only cost $5 each and there are too many prizes to list.   This raffle is also a fund raiser for our club.  Please pick some up at the January meeting from Pearl Buckridge.  The club’s Super 50/50 Raffle tickets are also available for $5 each and the more sold, the bigger the cash prizes.  Grab some from Jane Oomen at the meeting too.  This drawing will be held at our club meeting in April.

The trip to the Beeches is fast approaching; January 31- Feb 2.  Call for a reservation: 315-336-1775.  If you plan on attending, please let us know at the meeting; if you are unable to attend the meeting, please call or email me, 914-213-1660.  We’d like to get a head count to organize that buffet dinner.

A Second Club Trip is planned to the Ridgeview Lodge in Lowville, NY for February 21 – February 22nd.  20 Rooms are reserved under the Club name but will only be held until January 20th!  The phone # is 315-376-2252. We are hoping to organize a pizza party again in that downstairs room. New this season — the Ridgeview has non-ethanol gas and you can pay at the pump with a credit card!!! The cancellation policy is 48 hours.

I’ve attached the For Sale List –for those that receive the newsletter by email.  Otherwise, I will have a hard copy at the January meeting.

I’ve attached the Discount List – had a few more additions!  Please remember to show your card to receive the discount.  Cards will be available at the meeting, if you haven’t already received it.

Received a few ideas for new saying on the back of Club Clothing – Let It Snow, Think Snow or Got Snow!  Any feedback on any of those? let me know.
