DUCK KEY CLUB

ITEMS FROM DUCK KEY CLUB NOVEMBER 2000 NEWSLETTER

Message from the CDK President, Oscar Norris

 

President's Message

Dear Club Member:

Our next general membership meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 29, 2000 at 5:30 P.M. The meeting will be at Emil and Anna Lockwood's home, which is 159 Bahama Drive South.

The Board of Directors held its meeting on November 2, 2000. There were several motions adopted by the Board and several items that were recommended to be voted upon at the general membership meeting. Please read the attached minutes of this meeting carefully and if you have any questions, call 305-289-3550.

We had a difficult time obtaining the building permit for our recreation center. There were several changes made to the plans by Monroe County and it cost the Club additional money as a result of these changes. Also, we made several changes to improve the facility that added more cost. We are still negotiating with the County on several items.

Construction is moving along at a rapid pace and if everything goes as planned we should have the tennis courts completed in about 6 weeks. The balance of the facility should be completed by the middle of February.

At present we have 105 member. To the new members, we would like to say "thank you" for joining the Club. If you are interested in signing up for one of our committees, please let us know. We will have a list of all committees at the November 29th meeting, so come prepared.

We have had several items donated to the Club that were on our "wish List" as well as cash donations. We want to have the best recreational facility in the Keys and if you would like to donate to our "Wish List", please let us know.

Sincerely,

Oscar L. Norris, President

Club Duck Key, Inc.
