President’s  Message                                                                             Ed Geller

In a few short weeks my term as President will come to a close, when I pass the torch to a

new group of incoming elected officers. We wish them success in continuing the friendship and

of the Regents organization.


We have enjoyed many different speakers this year, thanks to the hard work of Russ Levere.

There is also a great big thank you to all the other committee members who pitched in and made

the year a pleasure for me. I hope it was a fun year for each and every one of you.


A special thanks to our Sunshine Boys for the many delightful musical interludes during our



Another area worth mentioning is the membership. There are many future members out there,

so keep your eyes open for good prospects, don’t keep the Regents a secret, and invite them

to join and be a part of the fun.


Best wishes to all for a summer of enjoyment with family and friends.
