President’s Message – May 2020

I hope this finds all of you healthy, safe, and only going crazy from boredom and isolation.  If you or your family have been adversely affected by these unsettling times, I wish you the best. There will be groomed trails, fresh powder, and blue bird days ahead.

I write today to fill you in on what has and is happening in HVSC. There was not an official newsletter for May, nor will there be one for June. All scheduled club events and meetings requiring a gathering have been canceled until further notice. Your committees and board have been conducting club business via video meetings with the following outcomes.

Elections – Thanks to John Macek we were able to conduct a proxy vote online and I am happy to report we had 55 responses for the unanimous election, as verified by the board, as follows: President – Keith Faucher, VP – Betty Mostachetti*, Treasurer – Jim Gahn, Secretary – Nonie Kelley, Sergeant At Arms – Pat Cummins, Directors – Joanne Graham*, Alan Imhoff*, returning for their second year Robin Smith, Charlie Shanes (not on the ballet) and in the non-elected position of past president – John Feilen. *Welcome new members.

Thank you to outgoing board members John Macek and Carol Daniels for their years of dedicated service.

Ski Trips – Trip committee chair Jim Gahn reports the one western trip next year has been narrowed down to Telluride or Crested Butte. The committee is working with our tour operators to ensure that anyone that signs up, will have adequate opt-out options in the fall. You should have received an eblast with a trip survey to help the committee decision making, thanks to all that responded. The Eastern trips are on hold until the resorts have a better understanding of the upcoming season outlook. With this said, the usual June sign up will be rescheduled to a date and method to be determined.

West Point Football – we are moving forward with scheduling this event, again with opt-out options in place. Look for the flyer in the coming months.

Budget – Pat Cummins has met with his committee and has presented a 2020 -21 budget to the board for review and approval.

Until we meet again, stay healthy my friends.

Keith R. Faucher
