We have so much to be thankful for and many good things being planned at the Club. It has been a busy three months for all of us here and we are working together as a team to improve all aspects for you to have an exceptional experience while you are here. The Capital Improvements Committee is moving forward with the Phase 1 and it is very exciting to see the changes on a day-to-day basis. Please pay attention to future mailings as we are working on new ideas for the Club to begin in March after Phase 1 is complete. We would like your ideas and input so we can see more participation. Remember this is your Club and we want all of you to be excited to be here. We have a name change announcement…we have renamed the Conference Room to the President’s Board Room. All of the President’s Photos will be cleaned and moved to honor and recognize all their hard work. Any past president’s willing to participate toward a purchase of a plaque for outside the room, please let me know. We are getting ready for the Super Bowl and now that football season is ending we have decided to stay open all Mondays, except national holidays. It will be Monday Sports Night at the LBPC. It seems our regular Monday Night Group has expanded and they have become a family who look forward to seeing each other on Monday Nights. We will be the home everyone congregates so please join us on Monday Nights. There will be a limited menu and drink specials surrounded by friends. Note there will be no Sunday Buffet this month due to Super Bowl Sunday. Power Trip has been scheduled for all Thursdays in February except for the 14th which I hope you have not forgotten is Valentine’s Day. Please bring your sweetheart and/or family to the Club. We will be having piano music and complimentary champagne with dinner in the Red Room. It was teamwork at its best for taking down the Christmas decorations this year. There were so many people helping that it took no time to box and organize for next Christmas. A big thank you goes out to the Women’s Club for keeping the kitchen in working order. The kitchen now has a new ice machine and sandwich prep station Last but not least we want to thank all the members that do persevere and join us for lunch, dinner, Monday Night Football and Thursday nights for Live Entertainment during a little dust. It is much appreciated. Onward and upward, Bette Bloom General Manager
