Winter Champagne Brunch
Sunday, January 21, 2018
Join us on Sunday, January 21 for our Winter Champagne Brunch. This year we are again having the Brunch at the Country Club of Rancho Bernardo, 12280 Greens East Road. Further details will be in the January Newsletter.
Election of Board Officers
This is the time of year when we nominate and elect the Rancho Bernardo Newcomers Social Club Officers for the coming year. Club membership currently includes 175 households in Rancho Bernardo and the surrounding areas. Election of Officers will be held at the Annual Winter Champagne Brunch in January.
Board Meetings are held on the morning of the second Saturday of the month. We currently have one vacancy and need a volunteer for that position, a President-Elect.
The 2018 President-Elect will coordinate the special events we will sponsor in 2018; the Holiday Dinner/Dance, the twice-yearly Sunday Brunches, the bi-monthly Wine & Dines, etc. This Officer will become President in 2019. Roger McCormack, Tim DeMarco, Maurice Nahum, Doug Troxler, Rose Marie Dishman and many others have done great jobs in this position. It is important, but not that difficult. They have always been assisted and supported by other Club Officers. Feel free to contact any of them for additional information about this position.
Currently, the Officer Candidate slate for 2018 is:
President Roger McCormack
Secretary Maryalice Taflan
Treasurer Craig Jennings
VP Databases Chuck Schmitt
VP Membership Barbara Shaw
VP Publications Chuck Schmitt
In addition to the Board members listed above, Alethea Altenbern, Val Collins, Barbara Shaw and Steve White will continue to volunteer in various positions. Some of the current Officers have served up to 6 years, contributing a few hours of their time every month to keep our Club operating.
Isn’t it time you considered contributing some of your time to this effort? The Club cannot continue to operate if its existence depends on a shrinking number of volunteer members.
Please consider volunteering to fill this position.
The Board of the Rancho Bernardo Newcomers Social Club
We welcome volunteers to chair the events or assist in staging them. If you would like to be an event
