Mike & Kathy Hutchens (19514)
Texas State Directors
We hope this finds everyone well and enjoying the start of 2023. Things in Texas are going well! Our only chapter (Kountry Lone Stars South) continues to have phenomenal growth. As of November, the chapter had 31 new members (16 coaches) in 2022. It is great to see this continued interest in our chapter and it shows that we Newmarians love to go out and meet others like us!
At the November meeting, the chapter held its annual elections with the following members accepting leadership roles: Ted Wagner, president; Annette Espinoza, vice-president; Jane Thomas, secretary; and Pat Zimmerer, treasurer. We want to thank each of these members for their dedication and willingness to serve. We also want to thank long-term Secretary Diana Fickinger and long-term Treasurer Sue Milgrom for the many hours they spent and the diligence they displayed in their respective jobs! Even though you are no longer officers, we all hope to see you at many of our upcoming rallies.
This year the chapter is going to attempt to have some “gatherings” in addition to rallies. These events would be planned by any member of the chapter and advertised through our normal process. The difference is that there would be no host, no formal schedule and no rally fee. In other words, the people would do what they do best—-get together and enjoy each other’s company. We will let you know how it goes!
Upcoming rallies are already posted in the Klub Calendar section of the Kountry Klub website. We welcome you to register and attend.
