DUE TO BLIZZARD WARNINGS, THE JANUARY 27TH monthly general membership meeting has been postponed to Thursday JANUARY 29TH, usual time and place, Costa Azzurra, with Social Hour 6:30 – 7:30, and Business Meeting at 7:30.
Tenants are in the rental house! The transformation to the interior is amazing, with polished hardwood floors, new windows, walls repaired and painted throughout, new kitchen floor and ceiling, appliances replaced, carpeting upstairs, and more! Countless hours, days, and weeks were donated by IHSM volunteers to make this happen.
Now that the house is completed and occupied, the focus will be on finishing the clubhouse. The next phase will involve the professional contractors who are volunteering their time and expertise, but when they’re done, the call will go out again for member volunteers for painting and other tasks. So keep your old clothes handy!
St. Patty’s Merchandise Available at February Meeting- letter from Nancy Smith:
Hi, Everyone! Guess what day is only 61 days away, St. Patrick’s Day but who’s counting!!! Get ready for all the shenanigans.
If you want to get some gear for the big day I have some hoodies and crewneck sweatshirts left over. The sizes are limited; but maybe I have your size. Stop and see me at the January 27th meeting and also the February 24th meeting if I don’t sell out. I also have a few light- up shamrock lanyards and also the plastic cups that light up and flash green. Get them while you can. See you there.
Announcement: IHSM Woman and IHSM Man of the Year!
The IHSM Executive Board is pleased to announce that Priscilla James and Brian Murphy have been named to be honored this year. Both Priscilla and Brian have been dedicated and have worked tirelessly for our organization, and they will be celebrated at our annual corned beef dinner dance. The date has been set for Saturday, March 7th, at Costa Azzurra, where we had a fabulous corned beef dinner last year. PLEASE SAVE THE DATE and join in the festivities! As several of the nominating letters stated, so many of our members go above and beyond working for our club, often behind the scenes. We are very fortunate. Jennifer Hussey is chairing the event, and there will be opportunity to make reservations at the upcoming general meetings.
CONGRATULATIONS TO PRISCILLA AND BRIAN !!!
