The December meeting of the EAA 1541 took place at Cattlemens in Roseville. There was very little – but some important – business to reckon with. Ken introduced the new officers and board members. We have had a very successful year, due to the hard work of many, and the excellent leadership. As with any organization, the success or failure is determined by the vision of the leadership. The new leadership is determined to maintain the course and altitude set by the founding members; with a focus on serving the wants and desires of our members. They have many ideas to keep the momentum going but would like to hear suggestions from the members. They have promised to do their part as leaders but we all need to do our part. Pitch in in some way, it will be appreciated.
The main thrust of the meeting was the holiday dinner. The food and the service was second to none. I had a juicy steak that just melted in my mouth delivered on plate dressed with a steaming baked potato and tasty veggies. I did not hear one complaint about the food or service. With fifty meals to serve I think they did a phenomenal job.
The highlight of the evening was a three way tie – Santa made an appearance and delivered candy canes to everyone with a smile on their face. He also helped with the drawing and delivered gifts to the winning guests. We were also treated to an outstanding musical performance by one of our own, Danny Hull, formerly of the Doobie Brothers. He got us all in a festive mood singing along with him. The third and most important was the number of you that took the time to come during this busy time of year. All of us that put this together want to thank you for support, your smiles were all we needed to know that our work of the past year was appreciated. Thank you all and Merry Christmas, Dave.
