“Today I have the honor of presenting a first for Mountainview Ladies Putters. All of you know Ruth Catalinotto who has been a putter for many years. Just this year because of balance issues and safety concerns, Ruth decided to stop putting. Roberta Wisniewski and myself met with Ruth to talk about possible options for the future. Ruth is going to remain on our active roster and receive our communications. She will also be attending luncheons and during good weather will intermittently stop at the putting course and urge us on.

“MVLP Board took action and is pleased to present Ruth with our first ever “Putter Emeritus” designation and name tag. Ruth is receiving this for two reasons: one – because she has attained the age of 95 and secondly made a voluntary agreement to discontinue putting for safety reasons. In addition to being named our first “Putter Emeritus” MVLP will honor Ruth as our guest at future Holiday Luncheons for as long as she wishes to attend.”

MVLP ANNUAL REGISTRATION MEETING

JANUARY 16, 2020

HOA2 BALLROOM

The doors opened at 8:20 a.m for new members.  There were six new members that attended orientation held by VP Jean Kraus.  The new members signed up for a committee project and ordered their shirts, jackets and name badges.

The Annual Meeting was called to order by President Pam Smith shortly after 9 a.m.  She welcomed and thanked everyone for attending. President Smith announced that she is the outgoing President. On February 1, EJ Snearly will be the new President of MVLPs.  It was a tearful acknowledgement and goodbye.

The 2019 Board members were reintroduced to the members, followed by the introduction of the new 2020 Board. Those leaving the Board are: Pam Smith, President; Ann Cristofani, member-at-large; Deb Adinolfi, Treasurer; Gay Uhl, 2018 Past President; and Jeannie Hepner, Special Events Coordinator.  Those joining the 2020 Board are: Joan Davis, Special Events Coordinator; Phyllis Meierhenry, Treasurer; Jean Kraus, Vice President; Annette Moyle, Member-at-Large;

All past and current Board members were given a heartfelt THANK YOU.

President Smith made special mention of the “Pink” calendars, which have a wealth of information on it. She asked all members to study the calendar, and make a note of the committee for which you signed-up.  She mentioned the next special luncheon, which is Founder’s Day, Monday, February 10.  This is the day we honor our founder Lou Ann Garvin, and our past presidents. President Smith asked all attending this luncheon to wear your Pink shirts.

President Smith followed with an announcement of our first special event of 2020 which is Putter/Sputter on Monday, March 23. The HOA1 Putter Sputters will be joining us on our course for this event and there will be NO regular putting on our course that day.

Standing Rules were then reviewed for new and for returning members.  President Smith reminded everyone to review our beautiful Website, it contains a lot of valued information.

It was at this point in the Annual Meeting that President Smith passed the “putter” to EJ Snearly, the new MVLP President for 2020.  (And understandably there were a lot of tears shed at this point).

EJ Snearly presented Pam Smith with A LOT of gift cards to her (Smith’s) favorite places and a card from all of the putters.

President Smith presented EJ Snearly with her president’s pin; and all other appropriate board title pins were exchanged at this time.

President Snearly said she wants all to know that we have a great Board for 2020 and we will all be working diligently to make it a great year for Mountain View Lady Putters! She added that she is still learning and trying to fill Pam’s shoes.

We then drew numbers for a multitude of gift cards… WHEW!

President Snearly made closing remarks.  A motion was made by Ginnie Schoepf to adjourn and seconded by Suzi Rizzo. The Annual Meeting was formally adjourned.
