President’s Corner November 2017

Our November Salute to Tourism event at the Tampa Convention Center was a huge success with over 70 guests and excellent reviews on the format, service, food and beverage offerings. I believe we have a model we can sustain for the next few years as we have many worthy individuals in our area and club to honor. Many thanks to Rick Hamilton, Eric Blanc, and Doug Horn for making it happen.  Thank you and congratulations again to our first time honorees….George Hoch, Dan Peretz, Rick Hamilton as well as David Downing, Santiago Corrada and Ken Lawson.

Next up will be our December meeting at TPepin’s Hospitality Centre on Mon. 12/18 where we do our annual auction and wine pull. This evening is one of our favorites (with guests and spouses also) as you would have to work real hard to go home empty handed! Also, we will be presenting our board of directors roster for 2018 at the meeting. Thank you in advance for the board members past and present who continue to contribute their time to making our club successful. Special thanks to Steven Rodriguez, our Executive Secretary, who….like all past presidents before me said….is the fuel in our engine! We would get nowhere without him.

A big shout out to Hoyt Hamilton (Past President) who is the proud owner of a new hip socket just in time for the holidays. Seriously, we hope all is well and we see you again at our meetings very soon!

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the TPepin Hospitality Centre on 12/18!

Best Skal regards!

George Bentley
