In this unusual time, having to deal with Covid-19 all around us and having to cancel our Get-Acquainted Party, it’s really been a downer at times. But then we need to remember we are blessed in many other ways. I want to thank all of the SSC members who exceeded my expectations at our first Membership Meeting for the 2020-21 season at Boomerang’s. It rained (too late to postpone) and we were put in our regular area where the 25% allowable indoor seating capacity is 30-35 people and that’s exactly how many people attended. Everyone wore masks in respect for others when they were walking around.
We’ve also been blessed with some great outside activities this summer. I want to send a special thank you to our Social VP, Sharon Royer, for organizing our deck parties at Cassel’s Vineyard, Spring Gate Winery, Greystone, & Liberty Forge & much more that she does behind the scenes. I’m also shouting out a thank you to Suzanne Laughman for setting up the Bike & Hike on the Northwest Lancaster County River Trail, to Mike Gavin for hosting the Bike/Hike/Paddle in Marietta, and to Dyan Yingst for hosting the Yellow Breeches Paddle & deck party. And I want to also thank our Trip Leaders, Dyan Yingst, Suzanne Laughman, Gary Smith, Dianne Paukovits, and Becky Havice for all the work they do on making our trips interesting, fun, and worry-free for you. Now is the time to sign up for the ski trip of your choice. Deadlines for dropping rooms and air seats are earlier this year for some of our trips, so, decide now, or there might not be a spot for you on the trip you want. These trips might be months away, but SSC needs your monetary commitment now to keep these trips on our schedule.
Without volunteers, this club wouldn’t be able to run. We need just a few more volunteers to help keep us going... We need you! Enjoy the rest of your summer and please stay safe everyone... until I see you again!!!
