Day Travel Chairperson Terry Mellon has stepped down from this position for health and personal reasons. We want to thank
this very generous and lovely lady for the many years she has devoted with heading up this very popular program. Because of
her, many club members have enjoyed some great trips, had lots of fun and made new friends. We are now searching for someone to be Chairperson for Day Travel. Please step up and help continue this great activity for our club members. You don’t have to do this alone. Two members can co-chair Day Travel. Please contact Chairperson Jill Blakeway if you are interested. Terry will train and work with the new Chairperson to make the transition smooth. She also will still be around the club, so be sure and thank her for her many years of dedication! Thank you Terry!! We love you!

At the clubs Executive Board meetings it has been discussed that eventually the bingo machine will need repair or  replacement. Looking ahead, the board has decided to come up with a few future fund raisers. Do you have ideas for fund raisers? Monies collected would be earmarked for bingo machinery and placed in a separate account. If you are so inclined, donations will also be accepted and put towards this project. Checks can be made payable to The 55+ Club and mailed to 1089 So. Patrick Dr., Satellite Beach, FL 32937. If you have ideas for future fund raisers please contact Chairperson, Jill
Blakeway at 321/773-2080.
