Dear Membership,
First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Here’s hoping 2009 is the best yet for all of you! We’re working hard behind-the-scenes to make sure we live up to our end of that wish for you with exciting offerings for the Pittsburgh Region Cadillac-LaSalle Club for the 2009 Car Season!

On the heels of sharing the calendar events with you, Stephanie asked me to remind you all that dues are due! On the reverse of this letter, you’ll find a 2009 Membership Form. Please return it to Steph with your check a.s.a.p. so we can stay current with the National CLC.

NEW THIS YEAR: As an organization, we are moving toward electronic service for all of your club correspondence needs. This means we will now be e-mailing you your monthly Caddy Chatter. With the rising costs of paper, printing, and postage, this is a more efficient and cost-effective manner of communicating. Please provide your e-mail address on the Membership Form (and have confidence that it will be kept confidential). If you still prefer to receive The Caddy Chatter via the U.S. Postal Service, we can accommodate you at an increased rate of $5 for dues. (Your dues will be $25 instead of $20 to cover costs.) Of course, if there are extenuating circumstances in your case, please give us a call and we’ll be happy to talk through this change with you. Remember, you or someone you know can always find the newsletter on the CLC website each month, as well! www.clcpgh.org

So hopefully, you’ve seen some exciting upcoming events listed above for this year and won’t hesitate to renew your membership. Please also know that the Executive Board is always willing to hear new ideas for events and club programs — we hope you won’t hesitate to contact any of us at any time! (For your convenience, the Officers and Board Members are listed at right.)

See you soon for a GREAT 2009 Car Season. Until then, drive smart, drive right, drive Cadillac! — Dave
