May is the month when we acknowledge our past accomplishments and honor those who have contributed to our successes. As your president I cannot sufficiently thank the other officers who have served with me the past two years, beginning with the inception of this club in June 2016. We began strong with 26 charter members and have continued to grow in number and enthusiasm! We originally planned to host this president’s luncheon at the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens in Jacksonville. Unfortunately, Hurricane Irma all but destroyed those scenic gardens last September, prompting us to change the venue of our May meeting. Many thanks to Frances Tidd who opened to us the oceanside community room at her condominium complex, and graciously decorated the tables with plants which attendees took home. Thanks also to the club for the lovely gifts you bestowed upon your club officers. Those who did not attend this function missed a picturesque venue, gracious hospitality, outstanding food, and a rare chance to interact with other club members on a personal level, many who are new to our group. I wish everyone a fun and restful summer respite and look forward to soaring to great heights with you during the final year of my term. “Teamwork makes the dream work!” (John Maxwell) Let’s bind our souls and talents together for the best year yet when we return in September!
