Dear Penn-York Lumbermen's Club Members,

     Well here we are turning the page on another year again, saying goodbye to 2016 and welcoming 2017. As I type this today I am saying goodbye to my sales partner for the last ten years. Today is Cam Koons last day, he is now retired. Cam has been a great friend and you could not find a better advocate of our business. He has been very involved in many organizations including ours. He is a Past President of the Penn-York Lumbermen's Club. I want to wish him the best from all of us on the business ! I am just about done with my tenure as President of the Club. In April, we will welcome aboard the new incoming officer.

     Enclosed are both your member dues statement and meeting dates for 2017, you will see once again we kept the dues the same. Your prompt payment will be appreciated. Every year as a general rule we give back all the dues collected to different causes that help promote and foster our industry. In the past 20 years alone Penn-York has given almost $700,000 to affiliations like PFPA, ESFPA, The Hardwood Federation to name a few. We also offer scholarships to students to attend the NHLA Training School in Memphis. On that note, the NHLA will hold a full 12-week course in Oil City, PA in June of 2017 for more info please contact them at 901-399-7569

     It has been my pleasure serving on the Penn-York board, I believe we do a great job in supporting the Hardwood Industry and that will continue in the future...see you out and about in 2017.

     On behalf of my fellow officers, Jack Monnoyer and Jordan McIlvain and myself, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
