Hello Members, Hunters and Friends,
The officers have decided to postpone this year’s Hunters Lunch fundraiser until next year.
This difficult decision comes in view of fluctuating Covid-19 cases in our county as well as input from key volunteers from the Norwood Community Church and the Norwood Needles quilting group. After struggling to develop a suitable and safe gathering alternative to the traditional schoolhouse lunch, we found it necessary to hit the pause button.
We optimistically say “postpone” because we’re reluctant to say “cancel” for such a time-honored community tradition. For last year’s Hunters’ Lunch during Covid-19 we made some outdoor meal and distancing adaptations, and despite the awful weather we did succeed at a better-than-break-even fundraiser outcome. This year, however, we’ve been unable to pull all the pieces together.
Hopefully we’ll be back in business with the Hunters’ Lunch next year. We hope you can consider an extra end-of-season donation to help us offset the loss.
Annual Members Meeting
WE WILL, however, be hosting our annual members meeting at the Schoolhouse on Wednesday, November 17 at 6pm. But it will NOT be a potluck dinner, it will be a regular meeting.
Please be prepared for the election of officers. Officers hold two-year terms. This year’s elections are for President and Secretary. The candidate offered for President is Trevor Dotson. Trevor is a member of the Historical Society, lives in Norwood Township, serves on the Norwood Township Planning Commission and is the Charlevoix Historical Society Manager of Operations. We still don't have a candidate for the Secretary position.
We look forward to seeing you next week!
Your 2021 Officers,
David Vermeesch, President
Chuck Cleland, Vice President
Nancy Cleland, Treasurer
