President’s Message

 December 2019

With the start of the Holiday Season GHCC’s West Room undergoes an impressive – albeit temporary – transformation. Marina Dye and Cynthia McCullough, our versatile Secretary, will be decorating the room in a spectacular yet tasteful manner. The room will be transformed for the Flotsam and Jetsam Garden Club’s Christmas Party and the display will continue for the Children’s Christmas Party on December 19 and for New Year’s Eve Bingo with Fred and Jo Nelson at the helm.

Special thanks to Pat Duvall, the Strahms, the Mackeys and all the volunteers who made the Children’s Halloween Party so enjoyable and to Alix Kosin, Howie O’Brien and Connie Gordon for a successful Book Sale.  Kudos to Annette Wright for organizing Paul Bannick’s presentation on owls to a packed house. It seems that many of us share an affinity for these feisty, appealing birds and Pauls’ photographs are worthy of a National Geographic Special.

I would like to remind everyone that GHCC serves as a Warming Station for the first day following the first twelve (12) hours of an extended power outage caused by heavy winds, rain and snow or ice storms, when no estimate for a repair on that day has been provided by PSE. GHCC provides warmth, light, hot drinks, soup and a place to recharge your batteries. The Warming Station will be open between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. until power is restored. We are not able to provide overnight accommodation.

A sign will be placed at the junction of Hansville and Buck Lake Roads when the Warming Station is openedand there will be postings on Nextdoor and the Hansville Community Facebook page, which can be accessed by cellphone.

We will talk more about emergency preparedness over the winter months. In the meantime, GHCC’s Board wishes everyone in the Greater Hansville communities a joyous Holiday Season.
