President’s Letter
October 20, 2015

A special thanks to Cecilia Hudnet for the outstanding evening we all enjoyed at the Chesterfield Hotel for our October dinner meeting. The poolside reception was great and the food and service at the dinner were excellent. We had several potential new members with us and during the dinner we had the privilege of formally inducting Angie Franjul-Garcia as a new member of our Skal Club

Carlos Banks will be representing our club at the World Congress in Spain the last week of October where the winner of the 2014-2015 Skal International Club of the Year will be announced. We will all be anxiously awaiting the results and look forward to celebrating on the November 17th dinner cruise!

James Hansen is working on obtaining auction items for the Holiday Party and several members have already responded to the letter that the board sent to everyone requesting their assistance in helping obtain items for the auction. We have had great success in the past years with certificates for hotel stays, apparel, wine & food baskets, theater tickets, sporting event tickets, artwork, holiday gift items, certificates for meals, green fees and golf lessons, etc. Any type of donation will be accepted and your charitable gift will help raise funds for Skål International Ft. Lauderdale & Palm Beaches and its charitable organizations.

Our upcoming dinners for the remainder of the year are:

November 17, 2015 – thanks to Erica Gregory, we are going on a dinner cruise on Windridge Yachts based in Ft Lauderdale. This will be a great event to bring guests and potential members to!!

December 16, 2015 – this is on Wednesday and we will be returning to Benvenuto’s in Boynton Beach for our annual Holiday Dinner Party and Auction.

Let's wish our members “Happy Birthday”!

October Birthdays:   
Wilson Carter  October 15th

We look forward to seeing you on the dinner cruise. We are encouraging you to bring as many guests and prospective new members as you would like to – the more the merrier.
