Happy New Year

President's Letter
December, 2011

Greetings Fellow Skalleagues! 

We had a wonderful holiday party at the Boca Renaissance Hotel and the silent and live auction was extremely successful. Make sure you take a moment to visit the website to view the pictures.

As we say goodbye to 2011 and usher in a new year, I wanted to thank all of you for your support and participation in our Club. If you haven’t had the opportunity to come to a meeting in awhile, make it a new year’s resolution to come to at least 5 meetings this year and bring a travel manager or owner who you would like to create a stronger business relationship with. That’s what Skal is all about, doing business with friends!

Thanks again for a wonderful year. See you at the January meeting. Here’s to a healthy, happy and successful 2012!

Cheers and Skål!
