GCA PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
It's already November, a time to be thankful. I'm thankful
for all our members especially those who host our wonderful
potluck dinners. Speaking of which, we had a fantastic turnout
and time at Eddie's and Monroe's Oktoberfest, as always. This
month the GCA Board voted to increase the potluck hosts' stipend
This month's potluck will be hosted by the newlyweds Ed and
Michael on Saturday, November 23rd starting at 6:00pm. See
the details deeper in this newsletter. There will also be
a brief Annual Membership Meeting during the potluck, including
election of Board members for next year. If you would like
to join the Board, please contact me.
Invite guests to join you. New members can get 14 months
of membership for the price of 12 months. As a reminder to
current members, please print out and fill out the last page
of this newsletter and bring it with cash or check to the
potluck to renew your membership.
I'm also thankful for the strides our community has made
in securing rights and recognition at so many levels. The
fight continues as more states consider legalizing same-sex
marriage and extending equal rights and protections. The struggle
is not over. Please remember this when you are asked to donate
your resources (time, talent, money) to continue forward.
Many Blessings and Thanks,
