Message from the President

Greetings,

Several months have passed since I have had a blog on our web page. It has been a few rough months, to say the least. It all started when I had an extremely bad reaction to a drug I had to take for a trigeminal nerve problem in my face. A very painful problem that requires taking some very potent pain killers. I ended up in the hospital, and lost over 25 pounds. There were days when I could not talk or swallow water. I was able to keep things together with help from friends and family, but I was not able to achieve things as I normally would. A very sincere thank you to all who sent cards, flowers and good wishes, it was very much appreciated.

We recently had an executive meeting and it was agreed that any of our members who are over the age of 90, will now become honorary members, as and such they will not have to pay any fees for their membership in Clan MacNeil in Canada.

We are also looking into introducing Pay Pal on our web page for those who wish to to pay their membership, or purchase any of the Clan MacNeil items.

Our year end is August 31st. We need some new executive members. I wish you would consider joining the Clan MacNeil executive.

We really need your help. It is not an onerous task – we only have two meetings a year. With the ability to do conference calls it is fairly easy to keep the information flowing. Please give this some thought and give me a call. I would really like to hear from you. If we are to keep Clan MacNeil in Canada alive and well, WE NEED YOUR HELP.

Yours in Clanship,

Alene M. McNeill
President – Clan MacNeil in Canada
