Latest from Vale Club's President: Another great year underway!

At the September monthly meeting we had a full house. There was an air of joy and happiness floating in the schoolhouse as we came together for the first time after the summer. It was inspiring to witness. The food that everyone brought was as good as it always is when we have a potluck. We want to especially thank our new hospitality committee for setting up and taking control in the kitchen. The table was festive and a feast for the eyes. The committee is chaired by Ann R and assisted by Kate C, Susan R, and Katerina V. Thank you for serving on our board for this year.
I am so pleased to know the tradition of the Vale Club Fall Fair will continue on. This was questionable in the spring but at our August board meeting we discussed it and Marjorie S volunteered to chair the Fall Fair. Carol C tells us this event has been going on for more years than we can count back to. It has been a community event back in the days when we were a home extension club for the wives of the local farms nearby. Please, please sign up to work on the Fair. We need many hands to help with this event.

Our next monthly meeting will be on Tuesday, Oct. 11, beginning at 9:15 a.m. Our guest speaker will be Dr. Tony Felice.
For a fun night out, sign up for Bunco on Thursday, Oct. 20.  It is a nice night out with the girls.

By the time you read this our first Happy Hour will have taken place. Thanks to Sue and Chip B and Ann and Dick M for sponsoring this event. If you missed this one there will be another one
this coming year.  I want to mention the coffee meet-ups scheduled by Ann Marquis. These get togethers are really an easy way to get to know other members that you might not see at other times. Watch for notices via email.

For everyone's information, Ronniejean I, Membership Chair, reports that we have about 170 members this year and at least 15 of them are new members. May each one of us reach out to our new members as well as to each other in a way that promotes more deeply the kind of friendships and caring that has always been a hallmark of Vale Club. How else to explain
this surge in membership!

Vale Club President
