December for the Wine Society means that elections will be held for Officers and Directors to serve on the Board for the coming year, 2018. Some of you may not know that our By Laws allow for members to vote. The elections will take place during the monthly meeting to be held at 6:30 PM on Monday, December 13th at the Harrisburg Hilton. If you wish to vote, you are welcome to attend. In fact you are welcome to attend any of our meetings. They are normally held at the Hilton on the 2nd Monday of each month. The upcoming meeting dates are announced in the Newsletter. Rarely we may have weather issues or other problems so that a meeting may be postponed. You may always call the Hilton to check on the date, as we are listed on the events for the evening.
A nominating committee appointed by the Board has announced the slate of names of those who have agreed to run for the various positions. They are exactly the same as the officers and directors listed on the 2nd page of this Newsletter so that I do not need to repeat that information here. But most importantly, having the same Board members willing to serve again means that everyone is happy with their jobs and willing to continue contributing their efforts for PWS. This is an unusual situation, but what it means is that stability is assured for the coming year, and perhaps will extend beyond 2018. Your Board is filled with dedicated individuals who want to assure that PWS continues and thrives. We all want to keep learning about wine and to share our passion with others.
