Letter from our President

January 24, 2022

 

We survived COVID.  I’m very excited to announce that we had a good year in 2021.  We are financially back to where we were before COVID.  Having Bingos on Mondays and Fridays was a big contributor to our success.  This is a great achievement for the Monaca Turners.  I would like to personally thank everybody who took part in making last year successful.

 

We held a number of events at the club in 2021.  The golf bash was a very successful event.  Our annual summer picnic, kids Christmas party and annual club Christmas party were all held again this year and were a success.  We have a number of events scheduled for 2022.  Those events are highlighted by the Jaggerz playing in February, the Medium coming again in April, hosting the National Golf Tournament in July and having another golf bash in the fall.

 

Our gymnastics program continues to be successful.  The girls participated in a number of events this year bringing home many medals.  We were able to host the Pennsylvania State Invitational gymnastics meet from March 5 to March 7.  It was a huge success.

 

We continue to try to stay ahead of maintenance issues inside and outside of the building.  In 2021 we replaced one of the heating and air-conditioning units for the large hall.  In 2022 we are planning to try to have the parking lot re-paved, replace the outdoor sign and repair the racquetball court.

 

I would like to again thank everybody who made 2021 a successful year.  We hope that 2022 is even a better year.
