As many of you already know, John Idele resigned as Club Manager on May 1st. When you see John, please thank him for the dedication and long hours that he devoted to the Social Quarters. As a result of John’s de-parture, the Board asked me to take over as Club Manager, so I ask for your patience as I learn the ropes.
Make plans to attend our Independence Day picnic, outside at the pavilion, starting at 12 noon until 5pm on July 4th. The Social Quarters will open at 4pm, its regular time, on that day.
Brick Pavers are being installed in the grassy area between the front sidewalk and parking lot, and should be completed by time you receive this newsletter.
New Door Card System: Also, by time you receive this newsletter, we hope to have a new front door card system in place. Members will insert their membership card (not their door card) to gain access into the social quarters. Should the member’s dues be ex-pired, he/she will be unable to gain access to the social quarters until dues are paid. Ac-cess from the side door (at the deck) will be gained by using your current door card.
There are no plans to replace that entry system because of the exposure to the outside elements. As always, because of ABC rules, the bartender will continue to check membership cards when you place an order.
With the use of various forms of communication (E-Mail, Facebook, the Message Board, and Newsletters), the hotline (which listed lodge activities) has been discontinued. To better serve the members, 757-565-5149 is now dedicated to the office, to more easily reach the Administrator/Club Manager. The phone number for the Social Quarters is still 757-565-9807. This will enable the bartenders to receive phone calls strictly for members in the social quarters and will eliminate nuisance calls from vendors as well as allow the Adminis-
trator to receive or make calls without tying up the Social Quarters line.
