Everyone should be aware of the Annual Meeting coming up on Monday, March 8th. You received post cards in the mail and one of the mailings had the wrong date on the card. Please note that the correct date is the 8th, the second Monday of the Month (as is normal).
What isn’t normal is our start time. The meeting will begin at 6:00 PM (and hour early). We need to start promptly and move through our business because we only have the Elk’s Hall until 8PM.
Which brings up a third change! The meeting will not be held at the club facility. Instead, we will meet at the Franklin Elks Lodge (125 S Main St, Franklin, NH 03235). See the below link for the Google Map location if you want to use that for directions.
This year’s Annual Meeting agenda will combine the regular annual meeting (required by our Charter, and normally held in January) with our typical March agenda, where we evaluate the number of openings that we have and accept new members. Our charter has a membership cap and so new membership is only available when taking the place of someone who did not renew their membership at the end of last year. As has been the case for several years running, there are more prospective members on the waiting list than there are new openings. Those on the waiting list have been contacted with instructions. Please be in attendance and bring with you the items requested.
Prospective members have been asked to come early to complete paperwork – between 5:00 and 5:30. Anyone who is not there promptly (and has not made specific arrangements) may risk losing their spot on the list to the next person waiting. There are more prospective members than available slots, so please follow directions.
