Note from your News Editor:
BEING IN A CLUB
While at our Monthly Officers Meeting I was looking for a topic to write about, our Charter Master looked at me and said “the meaning of being in a Club” what a great topic!
I think most of us have been affiliated with some type of organization, group or structured clubs. To be specific and talk about what the Club means to myself and my spouse (Donna). At first I was dead-set against it, I mean joining a Fishing Club that wasn’t us! I am not that social butterfly that can easily strike up a conversation with anyone. My son pushed me to attend the first meeting with him in April of 2018, he cancelled at the last minute and so Donna filled his spot, I could not do it alone.
There we were at LuLu’s, trying to size everything up. We left the meeting with stickers, paperwork to fill out and the opportunity to join. As we talked on the way home we both said lets give it a try. I have not missed a meeting since the first meeting I attended. Donna on the other hand because of her work schedule has missed a few but together we stay focused on the club and it’s well being.
We have met some interesting and down to earth people and consider all members to be friends. Through all of this we have had the opportunity to become close friends with some members.
My belief is that Donna and I can go fishing anytime or anywhere we want but to go fishing with friends and family is a bonus. Then to meet once a month and talk about fishing, family and what is going on around the fishing world is something we look forward to each month. Donna and I would like to thank all members and friends for allowing us to be part of this amazing club.
In closing, I think about the song by The Beach Boys, “Be true to your school” this is how we feel about our club. All of us active members please lets try to recruit some new members and pass Fishing on to the younger generation.
If you haven’t already, you can join the club & renew your membership online at sfvsf.org/shop.
