It’s an honor and privilege to become the new president of the LGA. I want to thank Don for his stewardship and guiding us through the pandemic. A very
difficult time for all and we managed to Zoom our way through it with technology and patience. Long ago lost track how many times we had to tell a speaker “you’re on mute” or how to turn on the camera.
After two monthly meetings and the return of committee meetings, indeed, it is good to be back face to face.
So what's next? First, I certainly want to enjoy my time doing this. I had a work colleague a long time ago advise me when doing something like this to “enjoy my time in the sun”. I plan to do that. We have a dedicated board who volunteer countless hours in support of the LGA mission.
I can say without reservation every board member cares deeply about the LGA and wants to do the right thing the first time. The committee work is where ideas are born and carried out to hopefully a successful and/or impactful conclusion. If you’ve never been on one of our committees, maybe this will be the year to step up and volunteer.
Over the year, you will hear repeated reference to upcoming projects and issues such as the lake vegetation survey, CERT, volunteerism, “What 3 Words”, etc. What we do is intended to “make a difference” and hope you can support us.
Just so you know, we are looking for someone to Chair the Education Committee. If you have an interest in this discipline, we need you. Next spring we hope to resume normal activities now that in classroom instruction is back in session. The Lakeside learning days which is intended for sixth graders is a key component to introduce students to the lake; many for the first time.
That’s all for now. We hope you find this edition of the Bulletin a good read. Please let us know what we can do better or have ideas we can include in the next edition.
Enjoy Lake Gaston, be safe and stay healthy. A special place with incredible people.
