From the President
Joyce Szulc

Vagabond summer events are in full swing! I hope you are taking advantage of these varied and numerous events. There is still time to join the sub list for golf, tennis or pickleball. We have added a collegiate baseball game in August for those of us missing baseball. And remember to register for the annual Door County trip in September.


As I write this, the outside temperature is near 90. So, it is hard to believe that it is almost time to enroll for the 2021 ski trips. Also on the 2021 calendar is the Greek Islands/Italy trip. In June, we had our first-ever phone-in General Meeting.


In July, we enhanced that by adding a Zoom video component. Now for August, we will have a combination meeting: virtual (through Zoom or phone-in) plus a modified in-person gathering. We believe this combination meeting will satisfy most of our members.


Check-in will be required for those who come to Serb Hall for the August meeting. To expedite this process, you may sign up online in advance for the meeting or you may phone in your reservation. Walk-ins and guests are welcome. See Page 1 for more details. For most of us, membership renewal is just around the corner. The fastest, easiest way to renew is online by credit card.


For those who wish to pay by check, the renewal application is included in this issue. Simply sign the form and send your check to our membership director. Only information that has changed needs to be included on the renewal form.


Enjoy the rest of summer.



All-new Vagabond Blog (Vagablog?)
Here is one more way to stay informed and keep up to date with what’s going on in the club. The Vagabond Ski & Social Club now has a blog! Ron Sonntag will manage the blog and will use it to send his regular, twice-a-week notices, along with other announcements.


Vagabond members will be able to comment on the posts, share information, ask questions and more. Our president, Joyce Szulc, will continue to send her Week at a Glance email message outlining upcoming Vagabond activities. So there will be two ways to keep up with everything Vagabond.
