November – December 2016 Newsletter


President’s  Message                                                                             Russ Levere

As we approach the winter, please be sure to be safe and avoid slips and falls and falls due to snow and ice.

If you need a ride to meetings please contact me and I will make every effort to find transportation for you.

We need volunteers to help with coffee and snacks, not for the whole year, but for 4-week terms, at about 30 minutes per week.

As an organization we need to overcome apathy and I urge every Regent to take an active role even if in a minor or temporary way.

I regret to inform you that the Christmas/Hanukkah party which was to be held in December has been cancelled due to low turnout and lack of interest.

My wish is that every Regent whether staying at home or out of state will enjoy November and December, and also an excellent New Year in 2017.
