Greeter: No meeting
The Club will not hold its morning meeting tomorrow, November 6th – Election Day. It’s a long ballot (check front and back) as we will cast votes for many local, state, and federal positions as well as three ballot questions.

The Pops will be held on December 8th.
Message from the RCOMH Board of Directors
It's time for us to give thought to building our leadership team for the upcoming year. Currently, we have positions open for three officers:
- Vice President
- Vice President Elect
- Treasurer…
… and two Directors.
The election for these positions will take place on December 11, 2018 at the regularly scheduled Tuesday morning meeting.
If you haven't held a board position in our Club we ask you to consider doing so. The board is a committed group of volunteers who want to support and influence the club initiatives, and value the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally. If you are interested in taking on such a role, or if you would like to nominate a fellow club member, please get in touch with Mike Cognata no later than November 13, 2018. You may click here to send him a message or speak with him at a Club meeting.
If you would like to read about the duties associated with each position please refer to the Club’s bylaws disseminated by John Williams in an email message last Saturday.
