THE PRESIDENT'S CORNER
The New Normal?
Well we have been in this "situation" for almost a year now. Activities that were the "Glue" of our community and our Club have either been drastically altered or eliminated entirely. "Truth Be Told", we don't expect to have an activity where we can physically interact until early fall this year. With all the "Gloom and Doom" around us, lets not forget that GOD has blessed the world with a wonderful tool's that the world did not have during the Spanish Flu of 1918. We have been especially blessed to have multiple vaccines, which appear to address this deadly virus. Finally, GOD has blessed us with the INTERNET! He has also given the "Gents" the talent and inspiration to use this tool to remain connected with our members. So if we don't meet in the "flesh", we Can and DO still interact with each other from time to time. It is a well known fact that for seniors, loneliness can lead to depression, and a host of of other related health issues that can hasten one's demise. Our message to you our: members, sponsors, and students is that in spite of the difficulties we are facing., The Sophisticated Gents Will Remain Safely Open For Business! Our members can EXPECT continued "Zoom Style" General Meetings. For our "Snow Bird" members that means you can join us at future meetings. Expect "Gent" internet activities to keep members engaged. Expect "We Care" continuing to check on your well being while we are "hunkered-down". EXPECT more new members to not necessarily be Villager residents, who will add a fresh perspective as we blow past the geographical constraints that limited membership previously. Schools remain open, therefore we will continue to fund raise for our students who will need support more than ever.
Education is the key to a truly "New Normal".
THIS IS WHY WE PAY IT FORWARD WITH OUR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM...
