President’s Message – February 2019:  In this season of cold rainy days and long nights, many of us are inclined to focus on indoor activities. A stellar example of this was 2018’s New Year’s Eve Bingo which drew a record attendance of 115 people. We thank Fred & Jo Nelson and Connie Gordon for leading this perennial favorite. GHCC has several events in February for your consideration.On Saturday, February 9 at 10 am, there will be a Pinewood Derby Workshop where kids (of all ages?) will assemble and decorate their miniature race cars. The Derby is scheduled for the following weekend, Saturday, February 16 at 2 pm, using a new and improved track. Both events will be led by the ever-versatile Chuck Strahm.

On Tuesday February 19 at 7 pm, there will be a TuesdayTalk “True Tales of Puget Sound” by local author and humorist, Dorothy Wilhelm who is sure to cheer and entertain. The Neighbors Lunch on Wednesday, February 20 at noon will feature a presentation on Recycling by Eirik O’Neal of Kitsap County’s Solid Waste Division, which can help us all.

The Log: Every month GHCC prints and mails approximately 1,875 issues of the Hansville Log to Hansville and Eglon and to our members in other cities all over the state of Washington and as far away as Michigan, Hawaii and Texas. Last month we mentioned that the GHCC Board plans to transition the Log predominantly to an on-line form format as a way to curb costs in time and money.We also stated that printed copies would be available to any member of GHCC who wishes to receive them. We have heard from several people, but wish to get a firmer idea of the numbers involved.A brief survey is printed on the back page. You can either detach it and mail it to GHCC, P.O. Box 133, Hansville, WA 98340 for the attention of Christy Mackey or email her at  Please respond by Thursday, February 28. Thanks – we want this change to be as smooth as possible and look forward to hearing from you.
