President’s Message
Welcome back! This year promises to be a
very busy and fulfilling year with the Juniors.
Over the summer and fall, our focus has been
membership. The participation of all the
members has yielded a larger and participatory
club. Thank you all for working so hard on
Dogfest and the Beefsteak dinner. This year
we have some new events, Bunco for Breast
Cancer, for one, should be great fun and I
anticipate will be very successful. If any
member has any ideas for other events, let us
know by emailing them to
