President’s Message – July 2018

We’ re half way! Through 2018 that is, as hard as it is to believe. While this year is flying by, the CFMC continues to plan for interesting and fun events for the remaining six months of the year. Our thanks go to Gina and Ken Schiess for hosting our “Sippin Saturday” event on June 8 and providing us with warm hospitality and delicious desserts! Even though we didn’t have the numbers of new members attend that we’d hoped for, our discussions centered on how to encourage involvement by all members in our club’s activities. As I’ve said before, events and activities are the lifeblood of the CFMC. We need members to be actively involved in order to make these club events possible. Activities are not limited to hosting trips. We can always use members’ help in many club functions such as maintaining our website, contributing articles for the monthly Ragtop Tales, helping to coordinate special events such as our upcoming holiday party and volunteers to perform outreach to some of our less active members to encourage their participation and involvement. Our more “experienced” members are willing to mentor newer members on how to become involved in club events and activities. The bottom line is that our membership includes a wide range of talents and experience that could be very useful to our CFMC.

Our upcoming quarterly business meeting on July 21 will be hosted by Patty and Ken Badoian. Please see the details in this month’s Ragtop Tales. This meeting is an important opportunity to engage in discussions about participation and involvement in CFMC efforts. A blast email will distribute the agenda about a week prior to the meeting. Finally, I’d like to wish all of our CFMC members and their families a safe and happy July 4th as we celebrate our Nation’s birthday and the many freedoms we have in the USA! Please remember the men and women, and their families, whom have made the sacrifices to make our freedoms possible. Thanks and I hope to see everyone on July 21.
Zoom-Zoom!
