President’s Message – June 2022
I hope everyone is staying well and keeping busy. It was great to see so many of you attend the Sinkhole de Mayo event on May 26th. Many of our members had fond memories from past occurrence of this event, so our Program Committee Chair, Laura Campos, reincarnated it as a charity event. Thanks to your involvement, along with that of our friends at FES and WTS, over $3,000 was raised to donate to Give Kids the World!
We are quickly coming to the end of our 2021-22 fiscal year, and that means a new Board of Directors. The Nominating Committee has assembled the following nominees for the FY 2022-23 Board:
• President – Laura Campos
• Vice President – Dana Chester
• Secretary – Maile Spang
• Treasurer – Rachel Andre
• Regional Director – Gene Lozano
• Regional Director – Sunserea Gates
• Immediate Past President – Sherman Klaus
• 3 year Director – Nate Willbur
• 3 year Director – Gary Spicer
• 2 year Director – Chris Bond
• 2 year Director – Loreen Bobo
• 1 year Director – Scott Perfater
• 1 year Director – Greg Dutton
However, if you, or someone you know, would like to be considered for the positions of President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, or Director, please send an email to email@example.com by June 30, 2022 with the name of the nominee along with emails from a minimum of 5 members indicating their backing of the nominee.
In addition to getting new board members, we will also be looking to get new (and returning!) members. Efforts are underway to kick off the annual membership and sponsorship drive. Be on the lookout for notification for renewing your membership.
For my latest Corny Joke, I’ll take some inspiration from the somewhat recent news regarding phasing out incandescent light bulbs:
How many narcissists does it take to change a light bulb?
One. They simply hold the bulb while the world revolves around them.
How many psychologists does it take to change a light bulb?
Just one, but the bulb has to want to change!
How many bodybuilders does it take to change a light bulb?
Two. One to change the bulb, and one to say “You’re looking HUGE man!”
How many jazz musicians does it take to change a light bulb?
A one, a-two, a-one, two, three, four!
How many hipsters does it take to change a light bulb?
It’s a very obscure number, you probably haven’t heard of it.
Keep the light on in your life!
