October Chapter Update (Thanksgiving Family Drive & Elections)

Well, it hasn’t always been pretty but We Are…  7-1!    A couple quick updates for the chapter.  Please note for the bottom section (chapter elections) there is a deadline to submit interest/nominations by 11/11.

First, a VERY BIG thank you to Bridget (and Ryan) Sanders for hosting the game viewing at their house two weeks ago.  For those of you that didn’t attend we had a great turnout including many that hadn’t come to Players in the past.  Speaking as a parent who is usually chasing his son around Players, having a babysitter there was huge!  We didn’t even see the kids as they were doing crafts in the other room or playing outside.  Thank you again Bridget!  We will definitely be doing that again next year.

1. Philanthropy Message from Renee – We are starting our annual Thanksgiving family drive.  For those of you that our new, this is one of the most successful philanthropic events the chapter has ever done where we choose a special family and providing them with a “Thanksgiving dinner.” This year, due the wonderful generosity of the club last year, we are going to sponsor two families. These families will be chosen in a few weeks and the biographies will be sent to you.

We will be collecting at the football games starting Oct. 29 or checks may be mailed to Doug c/o BrightLine CPAs at 1024 Iron Point Road, Suite 1058 Folsom, CA 95630. The collection at the games should include canned goods and other non-perishable items. These items should be in unbreakable containers.  The response last year was great but I am confident this year we will match or exceed it.  If you have any questions you may e-mail Renee at rvh1@comcast.net.

2.  Officer Elections – As mentioned in the Summer Newsletter, we are holding open elections this fall for new officer positions.  Please read the attached document and consider getting involved.  Being an officer in this chapter is not a large time commitment but its a great way to meet great people and stay involved with Dear Old State.

As always, feel free to contact me directly at dbarbin@gmail.com if you have any questions.

For the Glory,
Doug
