President's Message

Halloween is over and holiday decorations are already on the store shelves. I hear tales of snow up north but our afternoon temperatures are still in the lower 80s. How nice! We have two events to discuss this month: one is an opportunity to serve and the second is the ability to safely welcome in the holidays.  

The Winter Wonderland Holiday Cocktail Party will be held on Tuesday, December 8th, from 6:00 to 8:30 pm in the Palmetto Variety Pavilion at a cost of $75 per person. We are lucky the club has continued to rent the outdoor tent that provides ample room for social distancing. We will be limiting attendance to further facilitate social distancing, so sign up quickly by clicking here. If you are unable to attend, we urge you to consider a donation to our philanthropic efforts by clicking here to donate.

The Salvation Army is a charity that has been raising money for those less fortunate since 1891. A Salvation Army Captain noticed that many poor individuals were going hungry. When considering how to raise money for Christmas dinner, he remembered that in Liverpool, where boats came in, there was a large iron kettle called “Simpson’s Pot” into which folks tossed a coin or two to help the poor. The next day, the captain started a pot with a sign stating, “Keep the Pot Boiling.” He soon had the funds to feed folks at Christmas. Landlovers has supported the Salvation Army with our grant program, but this year they have asked us to help raise funds on Skidaway Island. The Village Walk Pharmacy has graciously allowed the Salvation Army to put a pot by their door, and we are asking Landlovers' members to help man the effort. 

Again, as a reminder, the best way you can help will be by renewing your membership to Landlovers. You can renew your membership by clicking the link in the renewal information below.

Stay safe and healthy on our beautiful island.

Warm regards,
