Ooh, this is a good one .

SUBJECT: running for the Board
BODY:
Don,

Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me yesterday about the Board. I am so pleased that you are interested in running.

On Monday October 14th at 6 P.M. we, the Nominating Committee are planning to meet the candidates at NCC

I also hope that you have an opportunity to stop by on a Friday, around 9 to join us for Coffee and Croquet. This group started at the suggestion of Linda Grady; and, is an informal gathering of members who wish to raise questions and introduce topics. We just worked together and changed the menu at NCC. A notice is sent out every week about this gathering which is held in the dining room; and you would be a welcome addition. We have 2 courts reserved each week for anyone who wishes to play.

I have posted only a small percentage of these emails. Some are annoying and some like that one are almost entertaining.

It could have been worse, it could have been Bocci ball. Or curling.

Oh, you know, I just assumed that Deacon was signing off his posts with a little flair, now. ;)
