We accomplish this by supporting the business and social activities of our members and their families.” President’s Message This is my last message to you, our valued members. First, I want to thank you for the privilege of serving as your President for the last year. Next, I want to thank the hard working staff who all pitched in and did whatever it took to ensure that your member experience was exceptional. Without them, and the extra effort they put in at times this year when we faced numerous hurdles, I would suspect that your experience would have been less than acceptable. So, thank you to our hard working staff. It has been a year of change. Some change for the better and some change that set us back a bit, but in totality, it has been a good year. We have a solid foundation, a Board that wants your Club to be the premier business club in Windsor-Essex, and we all look forward to the future with great anticipation. Our new GM, Jennifer Ralston, has extensive experience in business improveHOURS OF OPERATION ment and delivering results. We look forward to reaping the rewards of her Lunch efforts.
