Merry Christmas:                                                            December 23, 2018

At this time of year our thoughts turn to family and friends. From a different perspective I wonder how many of you think about our club during the holiday season. For me the club is, in a manner of speaking, a family; a large family with 217 friends that provide support to one another in the face of adversity and celebrate our individual and collective achievements.  Like families we laugh together, argue over ideas, share our grief and simply care deeply for one another while trying to build a strong club, full of activities for all of us.  With those thoughts in mind Susi and I are extremely happy to be part of the OBLBC family, and truly thankful for meeting all of you, our friends.  

We wish you all a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and a Wonderful 2019. 

Brent Merchant, President
