Gates Mills Improvement Society

The Community Club

The Community Club continues to move forward with 87 members, even during these difficult times.  Our last Luncheon and Program at The Community House was in February. Board meetings were held outside when possible.  All Ladies Night Out Events were cancelled except for Book Club which continues to meet with social distancing. We gave out one High School Scholarship and gave funds for 19 graduating 5th graders at the Elementary School. We participated in the November Village Service Luncheon and gave a gift card to the Service Department in honor of their 100th Anniversary.  In September, we had an outdoor Luncheon on Sara's Patio, and in October we went to Eddy's Fruit Farm for another luncheon at Eddy’s open air pavilion. Daily email chuckles were sent out to members, all done in an effort to keep our members connected.  Holiday events were cancelled, but we were able to host Olivia’s Dream "Toys for Tots."  The Pink Sheet continues to keep all the Village informed, and the all-volunteer staff is always looking for new ads to help with printing cost.  In January, we will be having our first outdoor winter event, but just like every organization, we would like to get back to some kind of normal in 2021. 

Thank You,

Cathy DiVincenzo, President
