PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - FEBRUARY/MARCH 2016

I am writing this message on July 4, which is a bit early for the August-September newsletter. Sometimes necessity demands flexibility, even though by the time you read this I will have turned 77 and will be even less flexible than ever!

Two weeks ago our members, along with four VCOTHG, enjoyed a wonderful Sunday social at the beautiful home of DB L. As always, great wine, appetizers and conversation prevailed. Thursday, July 2, thirty Gangers, led by ever-capable Fred T., enjoyed an incredible outing and picnic at the Hollywood Bowl. Smokey Robinson plus fireworks were outstanding. In a couple more weeks we will enjoy our annual picnic, and soon after an evening picnic and concert arranged by Gary C. 


Now, thinking of October, the Fall Gala has already been planned and all who attend will be rewarded with excellent food, entertainment and camaraderie. Finally, I predict that El Niño will strike in late September; so keep those legs strong for skiing. Thanks, Al.

Are you taking advantage of our wonderful activities? Well, I am! Last month I had a great time at Mammoth, beaming when the sun was shining and commiserating when we were freezing and the wind was roaring. In February I joined with a large group for Annette’s Urban Walk, followed by skiing in Utah with the 70+ Ski Club that includes many Gangers. I learned of this club through my friendship with some of our members. 


On a serious note, I want to put forward an idea that was rejected about two years ago. I would like to propose again that we slightly modify our name in a way that will encourage our newer and younger members to solicit their peers for membership in our wonderful club. That is all I will say for now. Email me your thoughts at president@ohgla.org.

 

President Al
