From the President's Desk
By Sue Guenther
Our youth event at the August meeting was once again a success. The lures were painted, the bracelets and key chains made, the casting boards were busy, and the ice cream vanished before I even noticed. At our abbreviated meeting, we drew the winners of our lifetime fishing licenses and then presented the college scholarships. All in attendance seemed to enjoy the event.
As you read this, the Fair is over for another year. Thank you to all who volunteered their time to work at the Club Booth. Your time and efforts on behalf of the club are greatly appreciated.
September 7th will be the Volunteer Picnic starting at 1 p.m. We ask that our volunteers respond by August 30th if they plan on attending.
Our next Meat Raffle will be held on Saturday, October 5th. Call us at 827-8968 to get tickets. Our meat raffles and gun raffle provide much needed funds to keep our club solvent. Your participation is appreciated.
Watch our club calendar for future events. Your participation at our events helps to make them a success and helps to keep our club financially sound.
On the business side of things, the last time our Constitution and By-Laws were updated was in 2010. Since purchasing our building, we aren’t just a social club, we are now a business. The By-Laws Committee has been working to update our document with changes requested by members including clarifications and changes to comply with the standards. All updates have been completed and the document has been put into a standard format with a table of contents. Our current By-Laws call for the changes to be published for 60 days prior to a vote. Due to the size of the document, we are publishing it on the website. The vote on the revised document will be held at the October 17th General Membership Meeting from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and the results will be announced prior to the end of the meeting. Current members must present either their 2019 membership card or a photo id and sign in to vote.
Until next month…be safe out there!
