DECEMBER NEWSLETTER

MANAGER’S MESSAGE Dear Members, In the spirit of the Christmas season, I hope all of you can find a few things to reflect on and be thankful for. For me, I am thankful to be a part of all of the fun and excitement that Houndslake has generated this year. I am thankful for the support the membership has shown to our efforts in operating the club. The success of the club is determined by your support. I am thankful that Emmalee Reese, our Red Cross Certified Hostess, was able to assist a member and quite possibly saved her life after a choking incident. I am also thankful for your generous contributions to the employee Christmas fund. The entire amount of this fund will be divided equally amongst all of the employees. During the month of December, we have many Christmas themed events that will hopefully bring you out to the club such as our Breakfast with Santa on December 7 and our Member Appreciation Christmas Party. This party is complimentary to the members and guests are welcome for $30 each. Happy hour drink specials will be available all night and live entertainment will be provided by Palmetto Groove. A special Christmas dinner will be prepared by Chef Daniel at a reduced price in the Dining Room. Please review the entire newsletter for other highlighted activities that we have planned. I would like to welcome everyone who recently joined the club and express my thanks in your interest in Houndslake Country Club. I look forward to the opportunity to get to know each one of you better. The club is offering plenty of aggressive membership programs, but we need your help finding those seeking the perfect club for their family. If you know of a friend, co-worker, or family member that may have an interest please suggest for them to try out the club. Houndslake Country Club is a family oriented club striving to provide the highest quality of service and the highest quality of facilities possible. We would like to hear your ideas about how to improve the club and make us better. We have a box in the area outside of the Grill Room to make your suggestions. Your club is a perfect place to hold a Christmas party or event. We still have dates available but space is filling up fast. Please call us if you would like additional information or would like to book a party. From our family to yours, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Daniel Seawell
