Get ready, get set, for our Lake Communicators Annual Holiday Party. It will be held at the Lake County Historical Society, 415 Riverside Dr, Painesville, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 10. Members, please RSVP, and guests, please pay online.

Take a tour of the beautifully decorated museum, and bring a wrapped WHITE ELEPHANT gift for our gift exchange. A white elephant is something that you don’t want, don’t need, or can’t possibly have any use for. It could be a ceramic dish from old Aunt Edna. You do not have to purchase anything; just take a walk through your basement! We’re still enjoying the lava lamp we won last year . . .

We will also have some cool door prizes. We encourage members to bring door prizes from their companies as well.

Spouses and friends are welcome; their cost is $20.

Join in the fun at this FREE meeting for members!

Cost: Free for members, $20 nonmembers
Time: 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.

Where: Lake County Historical Society, 415 Riverside Drive, Painesville.  Register by noon Tuesday, December 8.

Make reservation…

New Board, New Year

Welcome to our two new board members for 2016: Jim McClintock and Lori Caszatt. Lori returns as a board member since being married. Stacy Eshelman, our trusted treasurer, returns to the board for another three-year term. It’s members like these who keep our organization strong.

I would like to also thank the following board members for their time and ideas for another successful year: Annemarie Donnelly (president-elect), Kathy Smith (secretary), Laura Lytle, Diana Lewis, Tom Szabo, Elizabeth Conner and Dave Saifman.

A special thanks to Shirley Wolfe and Jerie Green, both retiring this year. They have been valuable members over many years as Lake Communicators.
