Gelandesprung Newsletters & President's Message

Julie's Jive

When the weather man said that winter was half over last week, I just about cried in my coffee—where does the time go?!  Since we need to submit articles to our Newsletter Editor by the 20th of each month, I have a lot to report on from the past weeks.  The Woods put out great hors d’oeuvres for our Christmas Party on December 23rd.  Plates of stuffed mushrooms, cheese and crackers, vegetables and dip were served, along with beer and wine.  This was also our Pre-trip meeting for both the Marquette Day Trip and our four day trip to Lutsen.

Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! The Skiing Season is here –what we have all been waiting for! In next month’s President’s message, I should be able to fill everyone in on our Christmas Party held on December 23rd, the Marquette Day Trip of December 27th and the Lutsen/Spirit Mountain Trip (January 1st to the 4th). We still have seats open for Boyne (March 6th through the 8th), so please check your calendars and sign up for some great skiing!

In the meantime, I found a puzzle from that some of you may enjoy working on. When the Skiing word search puzzle is complete, read the remaining letters left to right, top to bottom, to learn an interesting Skiing fact.

We had about 80 people at the 45th Anniversary Party/Fall Banquet Friday night Oct 24.  - Thank You for your participa-tion!  The 45th Anniversary Committee did a wonderful job decorating the room with crepe paper and balloons.   The din-ner of chicken, pork and fish presented by The Woods was exceptional!  Veronica’s cakes were absolutely delicious, as is always.  Neil & Kris Urban from Norway Mountain came & talked about the exciting changes they’ve made to the hill—please be sure to go to Norway’s website for more infor-mation.
