Hill Country Chapter of Chevron Retirees Association
December 11, 2019 Holiday's Luncheon
This past Wednesday, sixty-three Hill Country Chapter members, spouses and guests met at Austin's Onion Creek Country Club for the Chapter's traditional Holiday's Luncheon. The day's festive occasion commenced with an 11:00 AM social hour followed at 12:00 noon with a delightful meal served at decorated tables. Individual table favors were provided by Chevron's Government Affairs office. Esther Burns delivered the pre-meal invocation.
After lunch, Chapter President Paul Skakun opened the business meeting by welcoming three of the Chapter's newest members. He mentioned this was the twelfth year the Chapter has met at Onion Creek Club for its year end luncheon. Paul went on to speak about how Hill Country Chapter is recognized as one of the most "Robust" of the Association's sixty-two Chapters in virtue of our stable membership over the years and our success in attracting new retiree members. There are currently 270 members.
Paul reminded luncheon attendees they can contribute by encouraging other Chevron retirees to join the Chapter, and by communicating their ideas and preferences to members of the Chapter's board.
Treasurer Ed Van Reet gave a brief report attesting to the Chapter's excellent financial status. Dues for 2020 are now in the collection process. They remain $10.00 for a single membership and $15.00 for a spousal membership. Email notices have been issued and payments should be remitted before the end of the year.
Paul pointed out that the Chapter's website at www.chevronhccretirees.org is always a good source of information and the Chapter's email address (email@example.com) is an easy way to communicate with Chapter Officers. He said the Chapter's Board will meet in Marble Falls on January 20, 2020 to plan the coming year's activities.
