We closed out the 2018 calendar with a couple of wonderful events. The Middleburg Christmas Parade was wet, but wonderful with several intrepid members decorating their cars and having a great parade. The Holiday Party hosted this year by Cheryl and Chris Kintner was a smashing success with great food provided by members and the gift exchange, as always, MC’d by Jim Byers was a lot of fun.
Our first Board of Directors of 2019 was held on 5 January. We have laid out the events calendar for 2019 that includes a few tech sessions, a couple drive-to-lunch events along with our signature Braille Rallye and Hunt Country Classic show.
The new Board of Directors is very keen to get more members involved in the planning and conduct of these events and we will publish a full list of events soon and I will have copies available at the Awards Banquet. I have already updated the on-line calendar with planned events and will refine those events as planning ensues.
As always, if you have an idea for an event please contact me soonest so we may begin planning.
Looking forward to 2 February 2019, our 64rd Annual Awards Banquet is again being planned by Ted and Sharon Whitehouse and will be held at P.J. Skidoos, Fairfax, VA. This annual event has been held for 64 years and gives us the opportunity to honor a few members for their contributions and achievements during the past year. Please join us; we always have a great time with more than a few laughs.
