From the President’s desk.
I’m hoping that everyone enjoyed their summer and that now we can look forward to the colorful Autumn with the cooler days and night it brings.
We accomplished a lot as a club this past year. A successful March show, decoy displays at local libraries, show and tell of some great decoys, we welcomed some new members into the club and we just enjoyed our annual picnic last month with over 25 members and friends attending.
Our first meeting is scheduled for September 11, 2019. That night will be elections for the club’s officers. I want to remind everyone that Bob Liehr has served as club treasurer for the past 20 years and has indicated this will be his final year in service to our club. Kate Sohm also stated this will be her last year serving as secretary and newsletter editor. We will need other members to take an active role in our club if it will continue after this year.
The upcoming year has many exciting events in store for us. The Christmas Holiday party scheduled for December. The annual decoy show scheduled in March 2020. A decision on whether or not the club will have an anniversary dinner celebrating 50 years of the Long Island Decoy Collectors Association in September 2020.
I want to thank you, the members, for your help throughout this past year. As we move into the 2019-2020 season your help is very important to the continued success of our club. So once again, I encourage all members to get involved and participate in club activites. With your help and support we can keep alive the art, the history and the heritage of decoys.
