Men's Club 2.0 - News / Upcoming Events

08/26/2018 07:50:15 PM


Good evening Men's Club Members and Prospective Members,

I hope this reaches you well and you have been enjoying a nice summer.  As the Men's Club looks to ramp up again after a couple of months off for the summer, I wanted to share with you some information on our board, and upcoming news/events.

First off before I begin,  I have some sad news to report.  In case you missed the announcement this morning, one of our own, Paul Fiedler passed away after a hard fought battle with cancer these last few years.  Paul was known to many of our members as a close friend and a big supporter of our Men's Club Softball Team as both a player and a fan.     There will be a memorial service for Paul at the Temple, 3330 Grove Avenue, Tomorrow Monday August 27th at 2:00 pm.  I would encourage all of you who can make it to please attend.  Thank you.


New Men's Club Executive Board 

In case you missed it in June we installed our new Men's Club Executive Board.  This is a two year commitment for these individuals and I want to welcome them again and thank them for their service/commitment to the Men's Club.

Our new board has been hard at work over these summer months planning new events for the upcoming year (through next June), starting to put together a budget, working on fundraising ideas for the club and working to update our constitution for ratification this Fall.  As we start our activities again in September, please look for communication from our executive board to get involved in club events and committees.
