President’s Last Message
I look back over the last 2 years with so much gratitude in my heart for the wonderful experience I have had being your president. My comfort level is being “behind the scenes”; this was a big step in my personal growth (yes, we all can still keep growing!) If it hadn’t been for my affiliation a few years back with “Toastmasters” helping me to face my fear of public speaking, I don’t think I would have been up to the task of being your president! I joined the DGC to meet people since I was new to PP; and because of that “first” step, not only did I meet wonderful people in the DGC (and a few of you were so kind as to take me “under your wings” to get me acquainted with the community) I have gone on to sit on other community boards.
I am looking forward to just sitting in the audience as a regular member; I only had 5 mos of that before a few of you spied a “live one” and you “reeled me in” as treasurer!! But I will still be that person that enjoys working behind the scenes!
Please support your new President, Norma, and her board; “many hands make light work”!
Hugs to you all,

Bough Making, Nov 30, 9:30, PPC Community Center
Come and help us make the annual boughs for Pollock Pines! It only takes a few hours when we have “many hands”! If you have never made them before, it is a great way to learn to make one for yourself & friends! Please contact Pat Schoggins if you can help.
Boys & Girls Club Holiday Store Dec 5-8, 3-5:30
Need 4 volunteers a day to help the children pick family gifts out and wrap and cookies for 115 children. Please contact Maureen to volunteer.
A list went out last week of the gifts they need; if it would be easier, you can give a check to DGC and we can do the shopping all at once. If this sounds like a good idea, mail your check to the PO box and put B&GC in the memo section.
