Latest from Vale Club's President:
January"s meeting at the library was well attended by all of us. I was breathing easily when I realized the message got out that we were meeting at the library. I had visions of members showing up at the Schoolhouse. Please know that we are meeting at the library for the February meeting again. Jane Sharnoff thinks we will have access to the meeting room until noon so it won't be so rushed. Jim Lewis received good reviews for his program. He will be back to Vale Club later in the year to provide an evening program to include spouses. Travel Dialogue is sponsoring an event this Thursday, Feb. 9, at 11:30 a.m., at the Schoolhouse. Please RSVP to Trecia Buster if you are attending. The guest speaker is Ron Bailey who will tell us about living in South Africa among South African whites in a just changed segregated society and his views on Africa and travel on the continent.
Our monthly February meeting is on Valentine's Day, the 14th, in case you forgot. Our speaker is Ray Smith, husband of Anne Smith. I believe it is always a privilege to have one of our own come to do a program. For fun come to the Chili Cook-Off on Feb. 18. We have a competition for the best named and best tasting. But teh best part of the evening will be the good food and good company. You don't want to miss this Vale Club Event.
Happy Valentine's Day
