Presidents message November 2018

Thanks to all of you who attended our November meeting. We had a lower than normal turnout which is to be expected this time of year.  During our November meeting your current Board of Directors; Gary Buroker, Vice President, Kathy Boulton, Treasurer, Michelle Auwaerter, Secretary and myself at President were once again elected to serve another one-year term. I would like to thank each of you who voted for your vote of confidence. I can assure you we will continue to do everything in our power to help make “Navarre Beach Be the Best It Can Be”.

During our November meeting we also discussed and voted on NBLRA once again hosting a New Year’s Party. The vote was unanimous so we will once again host a party immediately following our January 19, 2019 meeting. We will be serving hot and cold hors d’oeuvres and providing two drink tickets for each member. Soda, beer, wine and cocktails will all be available with your drink tickets.  PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDER NOW TO ATTEND! Last year we had over 80 people in attendance.

Please be sure to check out all of the updates in our meeting minutes and those provided each month from your Neighborhood Watch Committee, your Meet Your Neighbor Committee, your Beach Beatification Committee, your Legislative Update Committee and your Program Committee.  There is always something new in each of these updates.

With Mirta Schroeder resigning from her position as Chair of the Community Connection Committee we are looking for a volunteer to take this committee over beginning January 2019. The Chair of the Community Connection Committee is responsible for identifying various activities and occurrences throughout the greater Navarre area that might be of interest to our members. The Chair will then notify all members of NBLRA of these events of interest at our monthly meetings and through our monthly newsletter. If you are interested in this opportunity or have questions please contact me directly at peterbirckhead@gmaill.com or 713-819-1980. Thanks.

During our November meeting the issue was raised as to whether or not NBLRA should continue to sponsor one of the “Tunes by the Dunes” concert nights conducted by the Navarre Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. As you may or may not know NBLRA has donated $500 for the past two years as a sponsor of one of the Thursday night concerts held on the beach each summer. The money raised from these events goes towards funding future Tunes on the Dunes events and supporting local charities. A motion was made during the meeting that we discuss this further and take a vote during our January meeting. Between now and then I will gather more specifics on this from the Chamber of Commerce and have available for our January meeting.

I attended the swearing-in of our new Commissioner for District 4, Dave Piech, on November 20. The event was well attended by over 150 people and there were a number of people from the beach.  I, along with other members of your board, am looking forward to working with Dave on issues affecting Navarre Beach. Gary Buroker and I hope to meet with Dave in December or early January to get things started.

By the time you are reading this Thanksgiving has passed. I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving and were able to spend some of the time with your families and or close friends.

As noted above and because we do not hold a December meeting our next meeting is Saturday, January 19, 2019 at 10 a.m. at Juana’s. Please plan to attend our first meeting of the year and stay for our New Year’s Party celebration.
