PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
THE SEASON OF LOVE

Dear Member:

In a few short weeks we will be right in the midst of the glitz and glitter of the Christmas Season. The streets will be jammed with people doing their last minute shopping before the sun dawns on the 25th. Happy songs fill the air; children, laughing and wide eyed, investigate every store’s toy department. There seems to be an atmosphere different from other times in the year. People are friendlier; they even appear to have a livelier step. The holiday season – a time of goodwill, peace and renewal of faith and a time when the warmth of friendship and the happiness of family re-unions are most important, is here.

This is also the time of the year when we reflect on our contribution and service to the community, and give thanks for the tremendous support, co-operation and encouragement the Executive spontaneously received from the membership.

During the Yuletide season, I urge every member to go to even greater efforts in practicing the great principles of generosity, faith and humility. We can make the season a little happier and more meaningful for the sick and lonely, people who would otherwise be forgotten at a time of the year when no one should feel alone or unwanted.

On behalf of the members of the Executive and from our home, Jean and I would like to wish you a wonderful Christmas and holiday season, and I pray that Love, Joy and Peace will be yours all this year and forever.

Al Andrade
PRESIDENT


TEGSA MEMBERS REACH OUT TO THE LESS FORTUNATE

In his appeal to the members, President Al Andrade said, “Let us examine the deeper significance of the spiritual truth behind this unique season and open our hearts by giving generously to the needy and less fortunate”.

The response to the appeal was overwhelming. Members brought a variety of canned goods and non-perishable food packages to the Food Drive at the Club’s annual Yuletide Serenade.

More then 600 lbs. was collected which will be donated to the Food Bank, who unfortunately have not met their target this year.

The Executive were very appreciative and grateful for the members’ generosity and were happy that TEGSA was able to help. One senior member was heard saying, “Members always put their best foot forward in time of need.”
