From The President
I begin this newsletter with some sorrowful news. As many of you know, we recently lost a long time member and friend Ted Eikhoff. Having joined our Club in 1993, Ted saw the many wonderful things our Club has done and, with his big heart, wanted to get actively involved to continue on the tradition of helping those in a crisis situation. Ted jumped on board with both feet running and never stopped. He wore many hats in our organization. He became actively involved from the start and then became President of our Club in 2003 and 2004. After his term as President, Ted continued to step up to the plate to help our organization. He was our Event Facilitator and had all of our fundraising activities down to a science. He Co-Edited, with Jim Flannery, our newsletter, Co-Chaired, with Drew Dungan, our website, oversaw the Kroger Community Rewards program and the Amazon Smile program. If that wasn't enough, he became Co-Treasurer with John Blake when the need presented itself. We were blessed to have Ted among us. His passion and commitment to our Club was outstanding.
