GREETINGS FROM THE PRESIDENT
We are back with a flare. The Halloween Party was a lot of fun with some amazing characters. But, then we have a lot of amazing characters in our organization to begin with. Our First Friday Tartan Night was well represented by all our members who wore tartan. As more members return the First Fridays will be more colorful than ever.
Our first General Meeting is on November 14th. Bring your ideas to help your Board come up with ways to keep our Non-Profit Organization headed toward the future. Yes, that’s right, we are now a 501 (c) 3 organization. We plan on more fundraising events and ways to finance the continuing costs of maintaining our Scottish American Society Historic Hall. We’ll share what’s been happening with the hall at our General Meeting.
Right after you digest Thanksgiving Dinner later this month it will be time to start thinking about our St. Andrew’s Dinner. Right after that it will be time to start thinking about what you’ll be bringing to our Christmas Pot Luck, but before that, please think about the hungry families in our beautiful City who need our help with providing meals for their Holiday tables. The Dunedin Pantry was pretty much cleaned out because of Hurricane Irma. When you shop pick up something extra for their shelves as well as yours.
For those members I won’t see I want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.
Remember—Honoring our Past is Preserving our Future. Warmly, Diane
Diane Burke – SAS President
