President’s Corner February 2019

Greetings fellow Skalleagues

If you missed our February meeting, you missed a fantastic affair. Thank you to Tom Haines and Shawn Routten for hosting us at the brand-new Fenway Hotel in Dunedin. Valet service welcomed our members and guests. A cool breeze and breathtaking sunset was the scene for our cocktail reception. The private dining room with panoramic views was our setting for a mouthwatering dinner prepared to perfection and did I mention, the service was excellent. 

Young SKAL held their Annual Fundraiser to help them attend NASC 2019. Thank you to all who donated, organized and purchased silent auction items. They raised $1700.00 thanks to your generosity.

Congratulations to Danah Heye on winning the 50/50 cash drawing of $110.00 and for donating much of it back to young SKAL. Other raffle items were won by Christopher Heye, Hoyt Hamilton and Janniel Rodriguez.

We pinned a new Young SKAL member Victoria German – Welcome to the Club!

Finally, we were honored to recognize Dan Tagger on his 55th Year with SKAL. Dan was a founding member of SKAL Long Island, New York and we are so happy that he is a longtime member of SKAL Tampa Bay now.

Our next meeting will be Monday, March 11, 2019 at The Bay Club, at the Westshore Yacht Club in Tampa. They have a special Murder Mystery Dinner with the Carrollwood Players. The theme is 80’s High School Class Reunion so wear your favorite 80’s look. It promises to be great fun for everyone.
