Member Meeting - 7/14/16
We are all saddened by the passing of Jim Morris this week. Thoughts and prayers go out to those mourning his loss.
Our Relay for Life team had a great time on June 17th as they spent the night walking in support of the American Cancer Society. Team Inner Courage raised over $1000! That puts the team total over the years at about $47,000!
The Par 3 Party Golf Tournament was an amazing success which raised $4400 for our convention in 2017! A big thanks to Kathy Dierickx for the great job she did putting this all together.
Another new event for OSPHC this year was the Quahog Festival. We had a booth setup for the day selling Convention Wreath raffle tickets and Macy’s Shop for A Cause coupons. A great time was had by all that attended.
Members Meeting – 04/14/16
Sue opened up the meeting with a team drink....
First up….Convention 2017. "Christmas in the Caribbean"....Registrations are going well…we have 130 registered so far and the website is working out well. It is easily navigated and having the ability to have our own payment system is working out very well. Charlie worked very hard to get us the Square payment system. In addition to taking payment on the convention website, we are also able to take all payments for dues, Buffett tickets, buying merchandise, even paying for raffle tickets. This is going to be a great addition to the club. There is a small fee involved in taking payments this way, so beware of that if you decide to pay for anything with your credit card. The website for next year's convention is...www.newenglandphc.com/2017
We… the BOD, and Chairperson, Nancy Heron, will be meeting with the hotel the beginning of May. Once we meet we will be able to confirm meal plan pricing, hotel room pricing, get a booking code and go over other items pertinent to our convention. We will let everyone know when you are able to book your rooms via Facebook and email. We want to make sure this goes as smoothly as possible.
Members Meeting - 03/10/16
Sue Nelson opened up the meeting with a team drink
First up…Bake Sale/Auction…everyone brought in baked goods to auction off and a lot of delicious desserts where up for grabs…. we made a total of 169.00! Way to go parrotheads! Enjoy those handmade with love desserts! All money will go into our convention fund for next year.
A show of hands for this year’s convention!…we learned a lot from this year’s convention…a few things to do and a few things not to do next year. The Maine club did a fantastic job running the convention this year…even with the little help they received. Gene Briggs had two beautiful handmade quilts that he walked around with all weekend selling tickets for. He made a total of 1000.00 doing that for the Maine convention. He did need to pay the person who made them and the rest went to Maine’s convention…nice job Gene! And yes, he will be doing it for our convention next year. Working together for a purpose…love it!
Members Meeting - 02/11/2016
Our Interim President…Sue Nelson opened up the meeting with a team drink
First up….Sue began by explaining the changes in leadership. Ben has stepped down as our President for personal reasons…he will be missed and will always be a part of what the OSPHC is. He will be available to help with anything we need and we are very grateful for his years of leadership to the club. Patrick our Vice President will be leaving with his wife Kerry for California in a few days. Kerry will be starting a new job at the University of California-Davis. We will miss them both and we thank Patrick for his years of leadership as well..in OSPHC. So…with all that being said….we will be holding elections for office in April. Right now, the office of President and Vice President will available. Start thinking about whether you would like to run…in the event Sue Nelson decides to run for President on a permanent basis, the possibility of the Secretarial position would also be available. Our March meeting will have nominations for these positions. We will need a volunteer to oversee the election process…please contact Sue at email@example.com...if you would like to volunteer for this. Your elected positions would begin on May 1st.
