Latest from Vale Club's President:  

Welcome 2020!
A very Happy New Year to all. I hope you enjoyed a healthy and happy Holiday Season.
On a personal note, I would like to thank all of you for making the first part of my year as Vale Club president a wonderful one! We’ve done a lot, and we have plenty more to do to continue the success of Vale Club and to support our partner, Friends of Vale Schoolhouse! Our newsletter is stuffed full of great information, so I hope everyone is reading.  If you haven’t picked up your new handbook, please contact Marguerite Choate. Marguerite will have the handbooks available again at the January meeting. Mailing what’s left over is expensive!!
 
We paid tribute to our longtime membership chair Ronniejean Irvin at the holiday party.  I thank Liz Brouckman, who is the secretary for FVS, for also taking over Vale Club membership for the next year. Ronniejean and Liz will be working together over the  next few months for a smooth transition.
 
With regard to fundraising—I still haven’t totally given up on the Yard Sale, but I’m pretty close to thinking it’s just not going to happen in view of the fact that no one has stepped up to organize it. I realize a lot of members are downsizing, and the yard sale is a great community event where we can unload great household items no longer needed. But without a leader it just can’t happen. So, Charlene Willess came up with a great idea at our December board meeting, and the board agreed. There is reference to it in this newsletter, and Sue Bowers has agreed to head the effort. She will elaborate more at the January general meeting!! It’s unfortunately
not a community event but something I think many members will want to take advantage of!! We can walk and chew gum at the same time, so if someone steps up to the plate on the Yard Sale, both fundraisers can still be accomplished.
I look forward to seeing you on Jan. 14 for our Vale Club general meeting, but, in the meantime, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!!
 
Pam Guffain
President
