Message from the President

January, 2019

To all members of the #1 Club in Sebastian,

Breaking news—There will be no elections for 2019 at the Club. I will be returning as President in 2019 along with the entire current Executive Board. I would like to thank the membership for supporting the Club in 2018 and I look forward to 2019.

My hat goes off to Vice President Wayne Bachman and his group of volunteers, (too many to name), for doing an excellent job on the outdoor patio. It is still a work in progress with more to come.

I would also like to thank my wife, Lee for organizing the Children’s Christmas Party and to Chris Cartolaro for playing an awesome Santa Claus plus all the volunteers. Lawanna Perry took great photos and a good time was had by all.

The exterior of the building will be painted in early January.

Upcoming events:
1/5 1:00pm— a memorial service and blessing of the bricks for our deceased members. Activities include a 21 gun salute by the American Legion Honor Guard, the Pastor from St. Elizabeth’s Church & a bag pipe player, Michael Hyde. All members are urged to attend.

1/26 6:00pm—70’s Disco Party, see the flyer for details.

2/2 —Pool Tournament—Sign up sheet in the lounge. Money raised benefits the patio project.

2/9 —Texas Hold’em Tournament. Tickets available in the lounge. Monies raised benefits the Scholarship Fund.

2/14 —Valentine’s Dinner—details to follow.

3/2 —Casino Gambling Cruise. The Club will start taking reservations on 1/2, see flyer for details.

Keep an eye open for details on the upcoming IA Club Cruise for 5 or 7 days coming in the Fall of 2019.

In closing, I would like to wish our members & their families a safe, happy & healthy New Year. And please remember our troops stationed around the globe. As always, God Bless America.
