Note from your
It truly is the most wonderful time
of the year! Watching all of the children sit there quietly
listening with anticipation while Mrs. Claus read them a story of Santa’s crazy
antics at the Christmas party was one of the most precious moments any of us
could have ever had the privilege to see. There was so much laughter and
holiday cheer from everyone; it was easy to forget about the stress of this
season. I think Randy said it best when he told us that this was his favorite
event because “we are all family”. It was so wonderful to meet everyone’s
families and friends. The decorations, music and food were fantastic. Thank you
to everyone that could attend and to everyone that helped out. Thank you, thank
you, and thank you to Santa
and Mrs. Claus for another beautiful and entertaining main attraction.

M&E/Membership officer Audrey
is trying something new and offering a referral system to help boost our
membership. Every time a member gets a new member (or someone that has not been
a member in over 2 yrs.) to sign up, they will get their name entered into a
drawing for a prize that will be drawn at the November meeting. There is no
limit to the amount of times your name can be put into this drawing. The only
catch to this is that you have to give the filled-out form to Audrey to be sent,
so that we can keep our membership records up to date.

and everyone is welcome so invite friends.
I have to make a few
corrections to last month’s report:
Bob Miller is our new Area Coordinator, Carrie
Flood is our Webmaster/Cares and Concerns and Terry Brown Sr. was at the meeting,
not Terry Brown Jr. although Terry Brown Jr. did come to Decembers meeting
(good to see you again!), so I will count that as a win and not a mistake.
all of us at Region 20: May all of your holiday hopes and dreams come
true. Please have the very merriest Christmas
and a safe and happiest of all New Year’s.
