PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE “ My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.” - Jack Layton Dear Bogey Hills Members, The above quote is what I have been trying to do during the last few months. To say it has been easy would be a lie. Life as we have known it to be has been changed and we are all adapting to those changes. Some are doing it faster and different than others, which is ok. I would like to thank you for all your support over the last few months. The decisions that are being made have not been easy ones. There are a lot of factors and outcomes that are taken into consideration with every decision. All my life I have been raised to accommodate and take care of members and guests. Under the current environment that has changed, and I am now having to make restrictions and limitations on the building and services. Please know that each decision that is made is with the health and safety of the members, guests, and staff. I have made some tough decisions, and some have not agreed and that is ok. It is my role to look at the Club as a whole and not at groups of members. I must consider the newborn baby all the way to the oldest member of the Club plus everyone in between including staff. I try and look at everyone’s perspective when making decisions and feel the decisions that have been made are the correct ones for our Club, members, and staff. So again, I thank you for all of your support. I was really hoping we would be in Phase 2 when you received this newsletter. Unfortunately, we will be in Phase 1 till June 15th. There are still a lot of questions that everyone has, and I understand that. Unfortunately, I do not have all the answers. If we move into Phase 2 after June 15th I am hopeful that we will be able to have the second half of league play for men and women, take the pool capacity to 130 people, open the bars, and bring back more normalcy. I will continue to update you all when the changes will be made. The light at the end of the tunnel is shining a little brighter. I am ready for us all to be together and enjoy our home away from home. I look forward to seeing you at the Club Angel W Likens BOGEY BREEZE 4
