 Program for Jan. 16th - We had a well-attended and informative weekly luncheon last week. Our speaker was our own Tom Lyons who gave us a thorough review and understanding of how social media works and why it has become such a powerful outreach medium for businesses and organizations like our own club. He shared some fascinating statistics on the growth of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and a few others. Tom could easily have spent an hour on the topic but unfortunately, we were limited on time. Perhaps he can come back to present Part 2 at a future luncheon! Tom encouraged all of us in the club to engage social media more to stay connected.
January 26, 2020 - Jim Goodspeed thanked everyone for volunteering to help with the packing party for 5K/Shamrock Shuffle scheduled for Sunday, January 26th. We have filled the volunteer slots, but all are welcome! More hands will make for faster work! Jim also updated us on the Christ Church supper for the homeless in Glens Falls scheduled for Saturday, January 25th. We could use a few more hands to help serve if you have the time.
Alzheimers Effort - Barb Sweet updated us on the Alzheimer’s Support Group meeting at Glens Falls Hospital. Our club is taking an active role in supporting this effort in our community. She encouraged everyone in the club who may have interest to attend the meeting on January 25th at the Pruyn Pavilion, 3rd Floor, in Glens Falls Hospital.
This Weeks Program - Jeanne Williams from the Feeder Canal Alliance will give us an update about the initiatives for our waterways.
