General Meeting -for all members Sat 8th


Dear Members

Thank you for your support for Linda and Jaak. I know you all meant a great deal to them. Many of you expressed such beautiful sentiments that I have no trouble seeing why Jaak enjoyed his membership so much. Being surrounded by people like you was a large part of why Jaak  liked to be with our club.

Thank you all so much for your kind words, your generous gifts, and most of all, for your friendship with Jaak. Knowing you will miss him too makes our missing him bit easier to bear.- Kathy
