Greetings Fellow Skalleagues!
Spring has sprung! We moved the clocks forward and it’s official. We celebrated the beginning of spring with our March meeting at
Tropical Acres Steakhouse, the oldest steakhouse in Broward. It seemed that the wait staff working our dinner had been there since
the place opened as well. It was a fun evening with a great crowd in attendance.
We had the opportunity to “pin” one of our newest members, Bill Lackey. Paul Cook joined me in the honors as he brought Bill to our
Club. Of course we had many of our members in attendance and Jeff Verlotta from Classic Vacations joined us as well. He was a former
member of the Chicago Club, so next time you see him, make sure you mention that we would love to have him be permanent member.
Remember to mark your calendars for our April 18th meeting at the Boca Renaissance Hotel where we will have a special guest join us
for our installation of 2012 officers. Martha McClintock, Vice President Region IV will be joining us to mark this special occasion.
Come show your support of our Club as we usher in our new officers. Feel free to bring a guest or potential member as well.
On another note, one of our Miami transfers, Stuart Gardner has offered to pitch in and help with the selection of some new locations
for our dinner meetings. If anyone has any suggestions for locations, or innovative ideas to continue to grow the Club, please contact
any one of your Board members. We welcome your suggestions.
Enjoy spring, because our Florida summer is right around the corner!
Cheers and Skål!
