Roost #44 Poop
·         From the Prez
WHAT A WEEK!  First we have the nominations for our new President and Vice President at our monthly meeting.  Bob Munroe as President and Don McMullen as Vice President.  The formal election will be held at our January Roost meeting.  There were no contested nominations for the other offices.  The Bylaws state, all nominations are closed.  The 1 Year Board position that was open is filled by the outgoing President - ME!
THE PARTY - What a Christmas Party at MIO's.  One of the best ever!  Thanks to Entertainment Committee Chair Donna Chaplinski and Ron Apperson for a fantastic job.  I have received numerous emails and call from members who raved about the dinner as the best one ever!
STEVE PAPPAS - Sunday, December 15th, longtime Roost #44 supporter and host of countless Roost meetings over the years, Greene Turtle owner Steve Pappas and his wife Dawne were presented with the Harold Glick award at the Clarion Hotel.  Roost #44 made a donation to the dinner and sent a framed photograph of Steve receiving Roost #44 Honorary Membership in 2017.  Steve responded with the following personal note:
"I really appreciate everything the Roost has done for the Turtle.  It means a lot to both of us."
