Dear Penn-York Lumbermen's Club Members,

     It's very hard to believe another year has passed by so quickly. This will finish up my term as President,
I must thank you all for trusting this club in my hands. It truly has been a pleasure and honor to be given this opportunity. I can honestly say that we have a wonderful industry and I'm very proud to promote our products, services and people.

    2018, where to start... I feel it's pretty safe to say it ended nothing like it started. This year presented new challenges,  hurdles, call them bumps in the road if you like. Who would have thought a year ago we would be talking about tariffs in 2018? Either way, as an industry we took these issues on and I'm certain that the market conditions will improve in 2019. From these tests we'll see testimony.

     Enclosed are both your member dues statement and tentative meeting schedule for 2019, membership dues will stay the same in 2019. Your prompt payment will be greatly appreciated.

                        As always, we will continue to give back 100% of all dues collected
                                    to causes that help promote and foster our industry.

     Here are a list of the current organizations receiving donations from the Penn York Lumbermen's - ALIFT, Hardwood Federation, Empire State Forest Products Association, Pennsylvania Forest Products Association, Appalachian Hardwood Manufacturers Inc., Hardwood Forest Foundation and the Wood mobile.

     The board of directors decided last year to embark on a new membership drive this year. I'm very proud to report we picked up over twenty new members in 2018. I want to thank each and every one of them for their support.

     On behalf of my fellow officers, Jordan McIlvain and Jesse LaSon, we would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year!
