Happy Hour At The O Club - Wine Tasting Sarasota Wine Club Friday October 10, 2014 1700 to 1900



We have recreated the camaraderie of the O' Club that we enjoyed in our younger days. Please come and join us. 








5:00 to 7:00 pm for the guys who have really taken their packs off



1528 Main Street
Sarasota Florida


No cost except for what you eat or drink - No Reservations. 

Spouses are encourage to attend.

The Wine club has two intimate rooms in the rear and a large wine tasting area. Staff do a great job providing excellent complimentary hors d'oeuvres. You can buy drinks by the glass or purchase a card that enables you to sample a wide variety of wines in one, two, or three ounce "tastes". Very nice.

We plan on making this our O'Club of the Hour for some time.  Look forward to seeing you at the next Happy Hour.

This message is from the Chair of the MOAS 2014 Nominating Committee.

This message is from the Chair of the MOAS 2014 Nominating Committee.
Dear fellow MOAS regular member; auxiliary member; associate member and spouses of the aforementioned members;


       I am communicating with you in my role as the Chair of the Nominating Committee, which is charged with the responsibility of recommending officers and directors of our chapter for the years 2015 – 2016. Your chapter and I need your help.

       It has been my and others observations that the healthiest organizations are those in which the majority of the persons in the organization actively participate in its operations and activities.  Your Sarasota MOAA chapter has been awarded Five-Star Level of Excellence status for multiple years because of its programs, activities and actions by its members.  But if we are to continue receiving such honors in the future, and support our extremely important goals and objectives, we need to encourage more membership participation and increase the number and breadth of candidates for succession to the officer and director positions in our organization.

       You will note in my salutation that I have addressed not only regular members, but auxiliary and associate members and spouses.  There is a lot of latent talent to be found in auxiliary and associate members and spouses - we want to tap that talent.  All of you qualify to participate as committee members in an area of your personal expertise or interest.  Areas of interest that you may wish to consider are listed below.

·      Scholarships·      Fund-Raising·      Legislative·      Marketing/Publicity·      Membership·      Personal Affairs·      Programs

       Your nominating committee will submit eight names, five officer and three director positions, for consideration by the membership and voting at the November 2014 General Membership Meeting and luncheon.  However, to assist the new Board of Directors we would like to submit names of persons who may wish to participate on any of the above listed committees.  Your participation can be arranged with the committee chair such that it does not interfere with work schedules, specific dates or times, or personal availability.  Descriptions of the duties of the above committees may be found at the following site:http://www.sarasotamoaa.com/moas_strategic_plan_and_committe.htm

       I ask that each person identified in the salutation, who is not currently actively participating as an officer/director or an active current committee member, to consider becoming more actively involved with your personal participation.  If you wish to participate in any of the above listed activities, please contact me by email at bgjhesson@verizon.net<mailto:bgjhesson@verizon.net> or by phone at (941) 926-8702.  

       I, and your Sarasota MOAA chapter, thank you and we look forward to your positive responses.

James M Hesson BG USA (Ret)
Chair, 2014 MOAS Nominating Committee
