Special Note: These are some hard times for everyone right now as the Coronavirus spreads and with all the closings, shortages, layoffs, quarantines (self-imposed or not), etc. We will keep everyone posted by email blasts of changes to club activities as they happen. I ask that everyone join me in praying that all of our efforts in this country help slow down the spread of this virus and for those who are sick and also for those who are losing family members and friends.
As we all look forward to another year with SSC as our all-seasons club, I’m looking forward to serving as your new President for the upcoming year and I’d like to welcome some new and returning members to the Board of Directors: Bob Havice, Becky Havice, Sharon Royer, Gary Smith, Lynn Hannon, Suzanne Laughman, Barb Collier and Dyan Yingst.
It is hard to believe that winter will soon be leaving us, especially since this winter had so many warm days. I want to thank everyone who traveled with SSC this past year. I was fortunate this year to travel with the club to Quebec City and New Hampshire, the most memorable being the bus ride to Quebec which took almost 18 hours in blizzard conditions as Mother Nature laid down almost 2’ of snow. (Wish we could have seen some of that in PA!!!) The skiing was great in Quebec and there was a lot for our non-skiers to do as well: Winter Carnival activities, horse-drawn carriage rides, touring the Ice Hotel, shopping in the many quaint shops, and eating crepes and fondue to name a few of my favorites.
Our Social Committee will soon be meeting to plan our social activities for the upcoming year: deck parties, paddling, hikes, bike rides, movie nights, and our Summer Picnic on June 14. If you have any suggestions or would like to help host an event, please contact Social VP Sharon Royer. Our Trip Committee is also busy getting bids for our next season’s trips and is already looking at destinations for the following year. We still have some support staff positions vacant and need volunteers to help with our banquet, picnic and Get-Acquainted Party. If you would like to volunteer, please contact me or any Board member. Together, we can continue to make SSC the best ski club in the East.
