President’s Message – May 2019

With the spring flowers in bloom and increased hours of daylight, GHCC is moving through its seasonal calendar of events. Many thanks to Judy Tallman and Susie Stevens for coordinating our Easter Egg Hunt and to Angi Jensen for her starring role as the Easter Bunny.  Thanks also to Annette Wright for a successful and thought-provoking series of Tuesday Talks and Connie Gordon and her legion of helpers who work unstintingly at the Rummage Sale Drop Offs.

The first event for your attention is scheduled for Tuesday April 30 at 6.30 p.m.The Kitsap County Parks Department has scheduled a meeting to share their plans with the public to replace a historic fishing pier at Norwegian Point Park. The proposed pier could be an important neighborhood amenity and, if you wish to learn more, please be sure to attend.

GHCC’s second dinner of the year is the Cinco de Mayo Dinner on Sunday, May 5 at 6.00 p.m. Please don’t show up on Saturday night – the Dinner has been scheduled on the actual day. There will be plenty of good Mexican food and beer to go with it. Tickets cost $20 and go on Sale on April 18 at the Hansgrill.

On Wednesday, May 15 at 12 noon, the guest at our Neighbor’s Lunch will be Aimee Fulwell. She is the Team Manager of Sail Like a Girl and will be giving an illustrated talk on the 2018 Race to Alaska (R2AK), a 750 mile race between Port Townsend and Ketchikan, Alaska through the Inside Passage.  Participating watercraft must be human or wind-powered, since no motors are allowed. Sail Like a Girl placed first in the 2018 R2AK. Come and hear all about the Race and learn what the Team has been up to since.

One of GHCC most important functions is to provide scholarship assistance to residents of the Greater Hansville communities who are planning an advanced course of study. As the price of college tuition continues to increase, few would dispute that this a worthwhile goal. Our Scholarship Fundraiser Brunch will be held on Saturday, June 1 at 10 a.m.There will be a delicious menu of honey-baked ham, breakfast casserole, fresh fruit and pastries accompanied by mimosas, coffee and teas. The names of the 2019 Scholarship recipients will be announced at the Brunch.

Looking forward to seeing you at the next GHCC event.
