President's Corner

SAFS members,

I trust everyone had a relaxing holiday season and New Years. 2017 was a year of many changes. I would like to thank all the board members that helped organize the clubs last few events in 2017.

A big thank you to Barbara Fayeulle and Heidi Tornare for putting together an amazing elegant dinner evening at the Wellshire Event center in November. Over 47 SAFS members attended. Everyone dressed to the nines and enjoyed great night of company and some Swiss trivia! Thanks to Karl Freiburghaus for organizing this year’s Children’s Christmas party. This event was also well attended and Santa made his annual appearance for the children. SAFS and board member Fritz Bart kindly let us use the Calvary church in Golden to host the party.

On a different note, I’d like to thank long time SAFS and board member Eugene Tomaschett for his decades of hard work and unwavering support of our organization.

Eugene advised the board that he would be stepping down from the board at the annual dinner in Feb. 2018. Eugene’s contribution to our club has been immense. He’s been the culinary organizer for SAFS for decades. Eugene’s expert knowledge and skills made all of our events special. Eugene, you will be missed!

As we move into 2018 I look forward to working with a great board and organizing events for membership. Our next event will be our annual meeting in Golden on Feb 11th, please see the registration form in this newsletter. The board is also planning a skiing day and bowling event this Winter/Spring. Stay tuned for details on both these events in future emails and newsletters.

I thank all the SAFS membership for your continued support and let’s make 2018 an amazing year.

See you at the fondue!
