New Year, New Officials
Well, who would have thought that we would be at the start of another exciting New Year… “And they said it wouldn’t last.”
Your board of Directors is delighted to announce that Ms. Chelsea Joy Kashergen has been elected to be our next President as of January 1st, 2013. Chelsea is a fine musician playing reeds and has just completed a Bachelors Degree in American Music History with a focus on the Traditional Jazz creation period in New Orleans. She is our youngest President of record and is a breath of fresh air.
You may contact her at chelsea [at] nojcsc [dot] org.
John Hockins, our outgoing President, will join our advisory board along with Duane Eberlein to provide Chelsea and the board with any support that they may need.
Bob Downum, a staunch long time supporter and musician at the Club is retiring from his duties of ‘setting up’ the Club. He has assisted Paul Goldman to get the Club ready for you every third Sunday. We thank Bob for his outstanding dedication to the Club.
IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY DONE SO, RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP NOW!
“Membership Drive” is continually on the agenda of your Board of Directors. How else is our club and the music we all enjoy to be kept alive. We ask that you concentrate your efforts in bringing new members to the Club. Keep the impetus of our club and the beat of the music energized! Spread the gospel and bring your friends and families to visit our Club at Westminster.
Consider this: Together with our donation to such as the San Diego School Band, visiting bands and venue room rental, every other dollar of your dues payment is returned directly to you through our buffets (4 times per year) and through our meeting attendance prizes and snack bowls. With the exception of 20 Honorary Life Members who have performed exceptional service to our club, there are no free passes.
Even the Revelation Classic Jazz Band — who extend themselves tremendously for the benefit of the club (and their deep love of the music) — pay dues. They receive no reimbursement for travel expenses or anything else.
As our president says, “Keep Classic Jazz alive. If we don’t, who will?”.

Good seasonal wishes to you all.
