Listen to - A Line from your President

 

A Line from your President. . . . . . . . . . .

I would like you all to join me in saying, “Thank heavens 2020 is over, and Happy New Year.” It was a year filled with superlatives, and one that none of us will ever forget. Besides the worst pandemic in a century, we had a record fire year, a record hurricane season, volcanoes erupting, and an election like no other. But despite the gloom of last year, the New Year offers us much hope. Now that the year is over and vaccinations for Covid are on the way, we can all look forward to a gradual return to normalcy.

Though last year was tough, it gave us all a chance to spend time with our thoughts. After so much time with my thoughts I have just realized that I still have so many unanswered questions! I never found out why we don't ever see the headline "Psychic Wins Lottery"... why abbreviation is such a long word... why dyslexia is so hard to spell … why lemon juice is made with artificial flavor yet dish-washing liquid is made with real lemons... why they sterilize the needle for lethal injections... and, why do you have to "put your two cents in" but it's only a "penny for your thoughts". Where's that extra penny going ? Come to think of it, maybe I have spent too much time with my thoughts.

Anyway, I am looking forward to the time when we can all get together again. Until that time comes, please keep in touch with each other.

For those of you who have been fishing during the down time, please let Albert Wilson know about any freshwater fish you may have caught, and Barbara Gattuso know about your saltwater catches. You can find the fish report form at the end of each month’s newsletter and in the Club’s website. This helps us with information for the monthly newsletter and helps us keep the yearly records up to date. Photos for the newsletter are also greatly appreciated.

I want to end my letter by asking all of you to spend a moment remembering those current and past members who we lost this year. Please help me in remembering Betty Wood, Beverly Cozzens, Shelley Wagner, Ross Ganados, James Lofthouse, and Clete West. Until we see you again, Monique and I would like to wish you all a Safe and Happy New Year!


Tony Smock President
