Greetings Fellow Skalleagues!
We had another phenomenal meeting at the Hilton Palm Beach Airport property. Thanks to Cecilia
Hudnet, Director of Sales, who will be joining our club, we returned to this great property for our
May dinner meeting. The food and service was outstanding and we appreciate them hosting our Club.
A few of our Club’s past members joined us and it was a great mix of the old guard and the new.
Charlie Beiser, past president of our Club when it was Skål of The Palm Beaches joined us as well
as current a member we don’t see often, Wilson Carter. We had some past presidents from our Club,
Cindy Christen, Dick Stafford and Scotty Cassidy. Mike Hartfield a past member of the Miami Club
who was celebrating his 80th birthday and Jan West from the Washington D.C. joined us as well. Our
staunch Club supporters Al Walleser and his lovely wife Anne were there with their friends and guests
Ed and Jeanne Warren from Alpine Adventures. As soon as the ink drys, new members Cecilia Hudnet our
host, and Terry Sam, Director of Sales from the Holiday Inn Palm Beach Airport Hotel & Conference
Center will be official and getting their Skål pins!
Dick Stafford briefed us on the upcoming Region IV Summer event hosted by the Jacksonville Club in St
Augustine on August 10-12, 2012 which will include an official SIUSA Board and National Committee Meeting.
This annual event was started by our club in 1978 and has grown every year as it rotates between the clubs
in the Region. If you have an opportunity to join us for this, it’s a great opportunity to meet Skalleagues
in our Region and have a nice affordable getaway too!
The Board confirmed the date for our annual summer social fundraiser so mark your calendars now for Friday,
August 17th, 2012. Details to follow but suffice to say it will be a fun social fundraiser. If we missed you
this month please join us for our next meeting on Wednesday, June 20th at Café Vico Ristorante in Fort Lauderdale.
You won’t want to miss this one! See you there.
Cheers and Skål!
