2007 Elections

Ballots for the 2007 Board of Directors are in the mail and should be arriving in everyone's mail box any day now. Thank you to Beth for researching the new CDS guidelines for chapter elections and putting together the Ballot, to Joan Wright for helping advise on the effort, Mary Anne Christensen and Vicki Cliff for folding and stuffing envelopes and to Cindy Hoonhout for folding, stuffing and mailing the ballots. Cindy also generously donated the cost of postage to mail the ballots out. Thank you everyone!

The ballot may be returned and placed in a ballot box at the Holiday Party on Sunday, December 10th or mailed to our post office box. They will be collected on December 10th and counted by the election voting committee. Results of the 2007 election will be announced and posted on our web-site.

Silent Auction

Along with horse drawn hay rides, lots of good food, and the awards ceremony, we will also be holding the SNC Silent Auction. The silent auction is always a good time for everyone and a great fund raiser for the club.

We are still looking for donation items for the auction. If you have an item you would like to donate, please contact Cindy Hoonhout at
