HARVEST PARTY & OYSTER ROAST
Our members and their guests recently enjoyed a great time at our Harvest Party! Families enjoyed a hayride to our Pumpkin Patch to pick out a pumpkin to decorate.

Adults enjoyed a terrific oyster roast, while the kids enjoyed a kids’ buffet, which included: Chicken Nuggets, Cheese Pizza, Carrots & Celery w/Ranch Dip & Halloween Cookies, but best of all, they loved the “Ghoulish Punch” and a Goodie Bag!

FROM THE EXECUTIVE CHEF, JOEY RUSSO
I am glad to be back! Obviously, some things have changed due to the world around us, more than anything else. However, I am very much looking forward to bringing back some prowess to the culinary facet of this beautiful club. It will take a little time – but be patient, positive, and be ready to eat! I look forward to getting back in touch with members and enjoying the sense of community that the club brings.

The Board of Directors at its January meeting voted for a 3.5% dues increase effective April 1st, 2021. While the Club’s 2020 financial year was favorable, it was a result of good expense management and the substantial benefit from the covid-19 federal government relief the Club received. We do not expect aid of this amount going forward.
 
In addition to the continuing health crisis, financial challenges to Duck Woods remain. The club has sustained years of rising product costs and both staff and professional labor costs without adequate dues increases. In all but one of the last few years we have used our cash reserve to cover our revenue shortfalls. Without some adjustments the Club will continually be challenged as expenses outpace revenues. A small dues increase at this time helps reverse the trend of using cash and keeps us on a better financial path.

In accordance with section 3-3.1, 3-3.2 and 3-3.3 of the By-Laws, the following named individuals were nominated by a Board-approved Nominating Committee:

Dave Ahearn
Paul Kruse
Jan Collins
John Mercer
Betsy McCaughey
Dave Roberts

The three (3) individuals with the highest votes will serve a 3-year term on the Board of Directors.

Election information including ballots to be distributed in the near future.
