When a group of us took over the Club a few years ago, it was on the verge of collapse. Of course, the membership is the key element of the club. The membership list was in disarray, there were hundreds of people who hadnt paid dues for years, but were kept on the rolls, it wasnt clear who had been billed for renewal or not, or whether in fact some had paid, Addresses were not up to date, and it was difficult to assemble an accurate mailing list for the Brass Bell, itself over a year behind in publication. In short a mess of large proportions. (Not to talk about all the other ones.) Al immediately took on this task and over the next several months sorted thru all these challenges and with good help got the entire membership system back in shape. Since that effort he has made many other contributions to the continued success of the Club. He deserves thanks from all of us for his work,and best wishes as he leaves the Club better for his having been there.
