Hope everyone has been well and the winter is moving along for you.
I must bring to your attention that, since the calendar has turned its page to the New Year, it is time for everyone to ante up and pay
their membership dues for 2018. The Officers would like everyone to get their dues in by the end of February. This lets us know who is
interested in participating in MEOA, and allows Bob to update the MEOA web site (www.ericsonme.org). If you don’t mind NOW is the
time to write out your check made out to MEOA in the amount of $15.00 and drop it in the mail to: Deb Barris, Treasurer MEOA,
PO Box 519, Boothbay, ME 04537.
The other reason for this message is the MEOA Winter Rendezvous is rapidly approaching. It is scheduled for Saturday, March 24.
This year it will be hosted at the residence of Bob & Deb Barris in Boothbay, Maine. This annual event is scheduled to start at noon and
concluding whenever the attendees need to leave. As usual it will feature the infamous MEOA pot luck food buffet. Stay tuned, we will
supply directions once the date gets a little closer.
If you plan to attend Winter Rendezvous – PLEASE - RSVP by Friday, February 23, 2018 by contacting President Bill O’Donnell by email
(firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (207-542-0098) to not only let us plan on your attendance but also to coordinate any food item you plan
to bring to assist with the potluck buffet.
One last item - for future planning – a reminder that the MEOA 2018 Summer Rendezvous is scheduled for the weekend of July 20-21-22,
and will be followed by the one-week version of the Ericson Summer Cruise.
Please … and Thank You in advance!
Fair winds and following seas,
Larry Reynolds, s/v Cocoa-Nuts, Secretary
