LASALLE ROWING CLUB
DECEMBER 7, 2001
|The executive of the LaSalle Rowing Club is
concerned about the club's longevity and future. To that end, the
club has established a couple of committees to determine where the club
will be in five, ten or twenty years. The Long Term Planning Committee
will assess the status of the club's current location, and then look for
a permanent home for the club, either in the same spot, but with new digs;
or in a new location. The Fund Raising Committee will make sure the
money is in place to accommodate such a move, as well as to provide funds
for equipment repair and replacement, and the possible hiring of a coach.
Rowing can be an expensive sport to maintain, and the club executive feels that extra funds must be generated from the community: either corporate sponsors, charity drives or fund-raising activities by individual members. Club director, Herb Colling will chair both committees. Club president John Parent will serve on both to coordinate their activities, and club director, Mark Brkljacic will lend his expertise on the Long Term Planning Committee.
To make these committees effective, membership
involvement is essential. The club executive is looking for gung-ho
club members with ideas, who care about their club's future, and are willing
to work for its long-term survival. If you're one of those people,
contact Herb Colling 728-1579, or firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
Fund Raising Committee
Please feel free to become involved in this or any committee as we develop a vision for the future and move toward a season of fun and victory.
Safe and properly maintained equipment will not only allow crewmembers access to on the water workouts, it will also assists in increasing the longevity our equipment. Tom and I encourage you to participate in helping us provide the best and safest equipment our club can provide.
