Thanks to everyone who attended the November meeting and participated in the nomination of our new officers: Larry Wilson as vice president, Mike Peters as safety director and Jill Martin as treasurer. All three will serve two-year terms. Although these candidates are running unopposed and we’re all sick of election-year hijinks, our bylaws still require us to elect/approve these officers in our December meeting, which is Saturday, December 3 at Avanti’s in Pekin, 12:00. Also at that meeting, we will be approving Al’s proposed schedule for 2017. AND, the club will be paying for your lunch, so you’ve got that going for you, which is nice. So you should come and participate in the MIJC democratic process. You can also pay for your 2017 membership, which is due by January 31st for all returning members.
Looking ahead, we don’t plan much in the way of wheeling in winter months, but if there’s something you want to throw together for people with tops on their Jeeps and/or working heat, post in the forum. Our next official event will be the annual banquet in January (tentatively January 21).
Have a great holiday season!
