President’s Corner April 2018

Greetings fellow Skalleagues

Young SKAL and the Epicurean... now that is Skal Tampa Bay at its finest! It was great to see so many of our members at our April dinner. We raised $2,800.00 to support our young Skalleagues by offering discounted meals and membership costs and covering travel expenses for our annual North American Skal Congress to our rising tourism industry stars. It's symbiotic- young Skals connect with elite high-level tourism executives, while our "experienced" executives are refreshed by these forward thinking future executives.

Be sure to invite your qualified guests to our May dinner hosted at Bon Appetit on Monday, May 14, and if they can't make that meeting, we have more exciting events around the corner!

On a personal and sad note I said goodbye to my father, Claude, on April 24. He was my number one fan and our family will miss him dearly. He was surrounded by our family and we know he is with my mother looking down on us. 

Best Skal regards!
