I am sad to
announce that Larry Oda will be stepping down as Vice President of our club. He
has served us for many years doing such tasks as keeping the club house stocked
with kitchen and toiletry supplies, cooking for various events, coordinating
with the landfill to unload the targets off of the semi, loading the skeet
houses, and many other jobs that are too numerous to name. Larry, your
dedication and hard work is and always has been appreciated. Thanks you Sir. A
cake will be at the club this Saturday in recognition of Larry so stop on out
and say Hi.
Secretary, Al Perry, will be taking over Larry’s position as vice president for
the remainder of Larry’s term which expires in March of 2021. The Board of
Directors has appointed Caleb Davis to fill Al’s position as Secretary for the
remainder of Al’s term which expires in March of 2020. This change is effective
at our next Board of Directors meeting on November 4.
