message From the board

For our Vagabond Club, April is like our ‘hump’ month, anticipating spring and summer activities that are planned. Check out this Life edition for tennis, pickleball, golf, style show, hikes, walks, biking, dinners and live performances. This is your time to get involved in your club. Sign up this spring for many activities!


And another way to get involved is to be a leader helping the direction of the club. The month of May brings elections for positions on the board of directors.


We repeat parts of last month’s Message from the Board:


The Club has so many talented members with unique abilities and knowledge who could step into a position on the board. By being a board member, you could use your talents and knowledge to benefit all Vagabond members. If you are interested, please contact Vice President Linda Horn at or (262)707-1450.


Photos and resumes of board candidates must be submitted by April 12 to appear in the May issue of Life. Now is the time to find out more about board positions and to make your interest known. We work as a team; you will always have support.


April 9...
May everyone have a happy & blessed Easter!

As we have been talking and writing about for the last several months, we have a number of board positions that are currently open (or will be open soon). Each position requires different skills, but one thing is constant: Board members are eager to spend the time and energy to move the club forward.
