January Aerie News




Aerie President’s Message: Happy New Year to all and may the New Year be a safe one. We will not be having a fish fry or karaoke on Jan. 2nd, as it is too close to our New Year’s Eve party.


As always, welcome to our new members. 2014 was a good year for us.


We are very lucky that we have very good cooks, We had a lot of good meals put on by our members. They are all volunteers and I would like to thank them individually, but I don't have the space here, so thanks to you all.


There are a lot of good events coming up in January, so check your newsletter. President Lee Rice


From your secretary: Dues! Dues! Dues! Your dues will Expire January 31, 2015! 


Please note that we consider the first notice of expiration given in the December newsletter.  Unpaid dues notices will be mailed out by the Aerie and Auxiliary noted as the second notice, the third in the January Newsletter and a fourth notice mailed.  If you have already paid and receive a reminder, just disregard it. 


Please pay your dues timely to avoid being dropped and requiring you to go through the application process all over again.  Dues can be paid in person or mailed to the club.


Weather permitting, I will be available at the club on Fridays, from 5-7 pm for the purpose of collecting dues during January only.  Please try to take advantage of these times.  Dues are same as last year, check you membership card for amount due. Dick Gulvas, Secretary
