We had a short meeting before the gift exchange at which officers were elected. They are:
- President, Kris Henning
- Vice-president, Mary Charmoli
- Secretary, Linnea Seume
- Treasurer, Charlene Strabel
- Blog/communications, Pam Davies.
Thank you to the 2018 officers who look suspiciously like the 2017 officers. Members are encouraged to step up to committee positions to support our hard working officers and to volunteer in the future to serve as an officer. The Grantoberfest committee is looking for a chair for 2018!
The executive board (officers and committee chairs) will meet soon to hammer out the program for 2018 and will get the bulletin out to the membership as soon after that as possible. The first meeting of 2018 will be February 8 with a new venue as the school now locks their doors for security reasons making it very inconvenient to continue to have meetings there. Plans are in motion to determine possible locations for meetings that will make it easier for members in the Siren/Webster areas to attend, possibly rotating the revue at every other meeting.
Here are a few pictures from the festivities at the Charmoli residence compliments of Georgianne.
