"It is hard to believe it is Fall! I love decorating my
home with pumpkins and fall leaves although it is still 90 degrees
outside. I do have a large almond tree that will lose its leaves
shortly, so I can pretend winter is coming, can't I?"
started our BWA year off with great excitement, as our first speaker for
the year, Vice Mayor Barbara Sharief, educated us on the proposed one
cent sales tax increase, and made a generous donation of $5,000.00
to our Scholarship Fund. This was our goal for the entire year,
so we now need to match Barbara's donation so that we can give
$10,000.00 to our deserving recipients.
Do not miss our
next meeting, as our speaker is another dynamo, and more information
about our first social get together set for October 25 at the Funky
Budda will be forthcoming.
Finally, do not forget to bring
a guest or two who would be suitable candidates for membership.
The Board is offering a great prize package for the individual who
brings in the most new members by the end of 2016!

Director of Recreation and Wellness, Tom Vitucci: “We have had a sudden
resignation from our Graduate Assistant for Operations and Staff
Development. Depending upon the candidate, we are flexible in
offering either an assistantship or internship that would last as long
as through the end of the current academic year (May/June 2017) and
possibly into the next. I am reaching out to you to see if there might
be any College of Business students at the graduate level that may find
this appealing and/or if you might have any contacts at local or
regional universities that offer masters level programs in recreation or
sports management where we could share this opportunity. If this
interests you or you know someone who would like this opportunity,
please contact Professor Olson at email@example.com
