- Social News - New Chair Needed
- — by Christie White
Neighbors, I am your current Royal Oaks Social Committee chair, and
I want to thank you all for the support and for participating in our
past events. At this time, I will no longer be able to be your chair
for the 2014 year. I am hoping that I will be able to pass the torch
on to one of you. It has been my pleasure to have planned our
parties and events for the past 5 years. Unfortunately, I have taken
on more hours in my job, and as my 3 children get older, I am
finding my plate starting to overflow. It is time to give this
service to someone else.
I will finish out this year as your Social Chair, but will not be
able to serve next year. I will be happy to be a volunteer and help
out when I can. I've enjoyed watching, meeting you all, and have had
a blast with your children. Please let me know if you are willing to
be our next Chair. I will be happy to sit down with you and give you
the details on each event. Christie White,
