 PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - APRIL 2018
.Summer is here! Go kayaking or standup paddle boarding guided by the most enthusiastic, inspiring ganger, Jacky G. Get on your bikes and feel the wind as you gaze at the blue ocean or the banks of the San Gabriel River. Have you ever done a CicLAvia? See our city in a most interesting way; always a fun, interesting event
Coming soon is a night out at the Hollywood Bowl thanks to Fred T. August 9th is our annual picnic, which will be partially catered. It is at a new beautiful location. 
On a slightly more serious note I have to say that I was disappointed by the tiny response to our “Free Lunch” Board meeting in May. You would have had a chance to see your board and all the activity leaders working so hard for all of us.  You could have added you comments, suggestions etc.  Planning for the picnic and Fall Gala has been going on for months. All activities are always planed far in advance. Carl M. has our winter ski trips ready to go!
Soon we will have elections and all of you will be able to participate in the decision whether or not to change our name from “Over” to “On”. You will have the board’s reasoning in detail with the next newsletter.
Have a great summer and PARTICIPATE in your club’s guidance.

Happy post-Gala to all Gangers. You have voted, and we are now the On the Hill Gang Los Angeles. I never lost faith that you would all vote—all 62 of you—but the vote went according to our Bylaws and it stands . 
I would like to thank again all our wonderful volunteers for their creative and arduous work on our behalves. Personally, I had a glorious time at Asilomar and Cambria—biking, hiking, touring and dining with my wonderful fellow Gangers. This letter is too short to thank and name each person as I tried to do at the Gala, so I will end hereHappy Holidays to all of my fellow On the Hill Gang members. On Sunday, December 11, over fifty of us gathered for our annual December party at Wanda Y.’s recreation room. What a boisterous fun-loving group we were. Conversation and libation flowed even though the hour was early. The food from Stonefire Grill was delicious and the leftovers were happily taken home in provided containers. Eight members won large, beautiful poinsettia centerpieces to take home to add to their holiday décor. There were several new members at the party, and we welcomed them all. Our club is growing, but there is room for many more, so spread the word. Special thanks to Audrey J. and her hard-working crew for making the party a wonderful success. As always, it takes several months of coordination to achieve this result. 

I am writing this message on July 4, which is a bit early for the August-September newsletter. Sometimes necessity demands flexibility, even though by the time you read this I will have turned 77 and will be even less flexible than ever
Two weeks ago our members, along with four VCOTHG, enjoyed a wonderful Sunday social at the beautiful home of DB L. As always, great wine, appetizers and conversation prevailed. Thursday, July 2, thirty Gangers, led by ever-capable Fred T., enjoyed an incredible outing and picnic at the Hollywood Bowl. Smokey Robinson plus fireworks were outstanding. In a couple more weeks we will enjoy our annual picnic, and soon after an evening picnic and concert arranged by Gary C. 
Now, thinking of October, the Fall Gala has already been planned and all who attend will be rewarded with excellent food, entertainment and camaraderie. Finally, I predict that El Niño will strike in late September; so keep those legs strong for skiing. Thanks, A
OHGLA is a wonderful organization with lots of benefits to members. So, if you haven’t done so already, sit down right now and send in your dues. And now, you will need to include a $10 late fee. Still a bargain!

Once you are a member, if you have any interest in being more active in OHGLA by serving on the Board or being an activity leader, come to the May 29 meeting, to be held at the El Segundo Public Library.  All those attending will be treated to a complimentary lunch. You will have the opportunity to get to know the Board members and activity leaders. You will hear about what has happened and upcoming events and activities. This is a great opportunity to share your thoughts and interests. A flyer will be coming your way with more information at the beginning of May. There are many fun events scheduled. Check the calendar; then come, participate and enjoy. 

I want to express a big thank you to all our active members who put in effort to make our events the fun and successful ventures that they are. 

Wishing you all a happy, healthy and wonderful spring season.

❤️
