Our President's Corner
Hello Baystaters!
It seems like forever since I have been in touch with you! The spring and summer have gone by way too fast!!!! I had such hopes of providing a couple of summer day trips for you but an unexpected trip "up North" and other unexpected situations derailed those plans, so I hope you will forgive me. As I look at my calendar it is incredible to think that we will be starting the NEW Club Year of 2015-2016 in just a few short weeks! Oh my goodness, I have so much to share with you so.. here goes!
Basic Club Information:
All Club meetings are held in the Lincoln Room at the Laurel Manor Recreation Center on the 3rd Wednesday of each month from September to April from 6:30 to 8:30 PM unless otherwise noted. The 1st meeting of the new Club Year of 2015-2016 is Wednesday, September 16th, 2015. Club DUES are $5.00 per person. All Club members must be Villages residents and prepared to show their Villages ID when attending meetings at Laurel Manor. Guests are always welcome and pay a fee of $3.00 per person when attending a non-ticketed event with you. Guests must have a valid Villages guest pass when participating in meetings. All members are encouraged to bring food for the food pantry (we alternate between Lady Lake and Wildwood pantries so your donations are gratefully received.)
Please wear your Club badges to every meeting. At this point all current members should have the NEW Club badge initiated last year. Paper badges are no longer acceptable to represent your membership in the Club. Club badges are a separae cost of $6.00 per person for NEW members (or members who lose their badges); checks are to be made out to the vendor: Bob Martin

Club Communications Information:
As always, if I have your correct e-mail address, you will receive a short note from me each month prior to the scheduled meeting reminding you of the upcoming meeting and what to expect at that month's meeting. All meetings are advertised the week before a scheduled meeting in the RECREATION NEWS under the heading, MASSACHUSETTS BAYSTATERS CLUB.
BY-LAWS Information:
We have been working on developing a set of By-Laws for the Club. We are hoping to get your input and make corrections/revisions so that we may vote on the new By-Laws at the November 18th, 2015 Meeting.

Club Membership has increased dramatically over the past few years and we THANK YOU for your support of our efforts and for helping to "spread the word" about the Club. Will you continue to do so by encouraging your Massachusetts friends who are not now members to join and be a part of our Club events?
