The Board of Directors has had to make some tough decisions in the last 10 months and I can tell you that having to cancel our December Membership meeting was among one of the toughest. I’m very sorry several of you missed the E-Blast and notices that we put on Facebook and Meet-Up. I want to share with everyone that SSC has mailed a donation of $100 to the Central PA Food Bank from half of our earnings over the last year and a half from our Hershey Park volunteer program. If you had a donation that you were saving for our December month of giving, I’d like to encourage you to mail it to: Central PA Food Bank, PO Box 62030, Harrisburg, PA 17106-2030. There are so many people out there right now in need.
We also have two major door prizes that we are going to raffle off in a rather creative way since we couldn’t get together at the December meeting. The drawing will be held on Wednesday, 12/23/20, and winners will be announced by E-blast. Here’s how to participate (please though, especially for the Aspen raffle, only participate if you know you are going there and will use these tickets):
For now we are hoping to be able to meet in person for our January meeting, but if the virus numbers and hospitalizations are still so high, we will have to consider holding a ZOOM meeting instead. I would like to wish you all a blessed Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a Happy New Year and, until we meet again, stay healthy everyone.

The Board of Directors of the Susquehanna Ski Club (SSC) considers the health and safety of ALL of our members and guests a top priority. Due to the recent surge of cases of Covid-19, SSC is instituting a new protocol for all meetings, events and trips provided by SSC. To participate in any SSC meeting, event, or trip, the "Covid Release for SSC" form (click on hyperlink to open this PDF) must be completed and signed by members and guests before entering a meeting room, event, or boarding a bus. Please read this form at your convenience, print if possible and bring it with you to our next meeting or event. If you cannot print it, copies will be available upon registration at the meeting/event. We ask that if you are sick, have a sore throat or fever that you please stay home.
SSC ELECTION OF BOARD OFFICERS AND DIRECTORS
Nominations for the 2021/2022 Board will be presented at the January 5, 2021, SSC membership meeting. At that time, nominations will also be taken from the floor. Individuals nominated in this way must be present at the meeting and accept the nomination to be added to the slate for the February 2, 2021, election. Board positions consist of: President, Trip Vice President, Social Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Membership Chairperson, and two Directors. Board positions become vacant due to fulfillment of term limits of these positions, or people stepping down to meet other obligations.
