President’s Message – March 2018

Our Annual General Meeting will be postponed until further notice due to lack of a suitable venue. Our AGM always includes a report on what transpired last year, a treasurer’s report and comments with the upcoming events for 2018. Election of board members will be held as well. While everyone is welcome to attend, only paid up members will be allowed to vote. Further details will be coming in a separate members only email. If you aren’t already a member please consider joining our society. Your membership is essential to assist us in growing.

There are a limited amount of Sunday Afternoon Blues Jam tee shirts still available and can be purchased for only $15.00. Blues Jam every Sunday from 4:00 pm until 8:00 pm. Great music with a host band starting the Jam. $5 gets you in the door and Jammers are always free.

Today we got our 900th subscriber to our monthly newsletter. An amazing achievement for our Society and kudos to Mike Hogan for encouraging folks to sign up from our Facebook page. We are approaching almost 2000 likes on our Facebook page as well. So the information is getting out to all our Blues Fans and thank you for supporting us.

Mark your calendars and join us on March 24th at Beban Auditorium. As previously mentioned we are having a “Fund Raiser” for the Nanaimo Blues Society. This will give you an opportunity to support the NBS in delivering another fantastic Summertime Blues. Silent auction, great music and adult libation will make for a stellar evening. Tickets are now available at the Queens. You can call the Queens at 250.754.6751 and reserve them now. $20.00 for a wonderful evening of entertainment.

Don’t forget to renew your membership and if you are currently not a member, please consider joining our society.
