We did it !!
After a two-year hiatus the Annual SSC Spring Banquet/ Picnic (aka Bannic 2.1) was held on June 12, 2021 without a hitch. The evening started with a happy hour, followed by the George Hannon memorial toast, a delicious sit-down dinner, and 40 folks dressed up and ready to party. We recognized the 2019/2020 & 2020/2021 Board and Staff members and welcomed the newly elected 2021/2022 SSC Board members. Once again Pepper Street entertained with song and dance. Special thanks to Becky Havice, Lovena Nickle and Suzanne Laughman for your organizational skills, center pieces and door prizes. Also, thanks to the many volunteers who helped at registration, and the members who attended the event! It felt really good to be out in public and socialize with folks we have not seen in some time.
Please congratulate the following SSC Award winners. Lifetime Achievement Award winners Dauvey Hoffman (2017) and Paula Unger (2020). Gold Ski Award winner Lovena Nickle (2021), Silver Ski Award winners Barb Collier (2021) and Gary Smith (2020), these folks were honored at the banquet for their years of service to SSC in various key positions, including SSC's Board of Directors and running trips and social events. Thanks to the Awards Committee for their hard work on the club recognition process.
Trip leaders were available to answer questions and take applications/deposits for their respective destinations. 2021/2022 trip sales went very well as Steamboat and Banff are nearly sold out. Mt Bachelor is well on its way and Solden has proven that Europe is once again a popular destination.
Remember to browse through the many planned Social Events listed on our website and in our newsletter. You will want to make plans to get out and enjoy the balance of summer and the beautiful northeastern fall season.
I ask that you encourage your friends and family members to renew their memberships and help us build a strong membership base.
I also encourage you to make sure your email and mailing addresses are both up to date in our club records. We hope you remain an active club member as our new membership year begins. Hope to see you socially as well as volunteering to help with this year’s events!
Stay safe and healthy!
