If you were able to join us last Sunday (December 2nd) at the New Cumberland American Legion, I sincerely hope you enjoyed our celebration as much as I did. Since the banquet room tables were filled, I’m glad so many took time from their holiday schedule to join us.
I wish to personally thank Dave Prediger for offering the blessing prior to our terrific dinner. The Legion staff also performed well as usual!
When it came to Jeanne’s reindeer games (word contests), I left my A-game at home. I was impressed with how quickly and completely some of you finished. You certainly deserve the prizes you received! By the end of the evening, everyone seemed to go home a winner.
I want to recognize all that Jeanne and the other officers did so the rest of us could show up and enjoy the experience. Plus, we truly appreciate the incredible support we receive from Senators’ staff (even during baseball’s winter meetings). Thank you for joining us!
Personally, I have much to be thankful for this holiday season. (We find out next week whether I’m cancer-free for a while or not.) I’ve learned much while bouncing back from this bout, including how many incredible friends I have.
I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Be grateful, celebrate safely and dream about all the baseball we’ll share in a few short months.
I look forward to seeing you at our next meeting: Tuesday, January 15, 2013, at 6:30 PM. Watch your Email about our guest speaker and whether there’s a chance the weather won’t cooperate.
