|January 2016 President's Letter
I hope everyone has enjoyed this holiday season and are excited to begin the new year! I am very excited about how wonderful our Christmas Show went and the activities we have planned for the next few months!
Thank you to all for supporting our holiday show! We all want to express gratitude for our first ever presenting sponsor, Perkins Realty Group! We could not have been a success without your generous donation! Thank you to our t shirt sponsor, Coastal Concrete - you made a fun idea possible! Thank you for our tickets sponsorship from Naples Nephrology and our programs from the Feminella family! Special thanks to the Rowley family for coordinating the happy ads and doing the lay out for our program and the Kruszewski family for doing such a fantastic job making that house light up! Thank you to the Stone Family, the Matuszak Family, and the Carroll Family for helping us so much with the props. The costume committee did a fabulous job and our show committee worked long and hard to put together a fantastic event! Special thanks to our directors, Lisa Perri and Kandis Eckloff and their team of choreographers and coaches! The programs and transitions were wonderful and flowed so nicely! Spotlights were spot on thanks to Scott Cudmore, Roman Vickers, Ari Beck, and their crew of high school volunteers from Estero High and Bishop Verot.
If you would like a video DVD of our holiday show, please check our website for information for how to order one. DVDs will be available during upcoming Saturdays during LTS as well. A special photo CD will also be available to order. Special thanks to club member, Heidiemarie Burke for taking these wonderful pictures!
It is hard to believe, but the planning for next year's holiday show begins next week. Please join us on Saturday, January 23rd at 9:30 to discuss the show and ideas for making next year's show even better. We will also be discussing ideas for upcoming events and socials as well as the upcoming spring show in April! There is so much to look forward to, so I am looking forward to partnering with each of you to make all of these opportunities fun and successful! If you cannot make it on that Saturday - please check our website for other opportunities to meet with us. If you would like to share ideas and/or suggestions to me personally, please do not hesitate to email, text or meet with me. I welcome your ideas!
Please join us in wishing club members, Paxton James and Zoe Larson, good luck as they travel to Nationals! We are excited to have our club represented at this prestigious event by Paxton and Zoe - and we are all so excited for them! We will be having a Watch Party next Sunday at the Feminella's! Please check our website and your email for more information and please join us!
We are jumping right into the new year with many events and opportunities. I encourage you to be diligent in checking our website, reading your emails, and talking to each other when we are together at the rink. It will be fun!
