Several times this year, I needed to get in-touch with board members in some of our chapters and it was hit-and-miss. More often "miss". It took lots of calling around to get the numbers or email addresses of current board members.
When our founder Woody Baldwin passed away on April 21st, he stipulated in his will to set aside a sum of money to be given to each chapter "in good standing" on the day of his passing. He stated that Prime Timers was a very important part of his life and he wanted to benefit the chapters. The executor contacted us for information.
"In good standing" means that dues payments were up-to-date and the chapter was current. Sadly, in mid-September, that was not entirely true. Our board has been contacting those chapters to settle this issue. The other issue is that our database that we furnished the executor was often incorrect. So, with lots of phone calls and emails (and returned checks), we're now down to only one. The moral of this story is the importance of keeping your information up-to-date with us. We all celebrate and give thanks to the beauty and generosity of the gift that Woody had bestowed upon us. We need to keep him in our hearts and minds.
