In these turbulent times when things are changing almost hourly, an old song came to mind and I could not get it out of my head. It was "Let’s Hang On," the song recorded by the Four Seasons/Frankie Vallie in 1965. If you don't recall the song, let me refresh your memory with just a few of the lyrics.
Let’s hang on to what we've got
Don't let go, girl, we've got a lot
Got a lot of love between us
Hang on, hang on, hang on to what we've got
These lyrics are so appropriate for our situation today, and how we relate and feel about BCYC. We just want to hang on to what we’ve got. When we joined this wonderful club, Ronda and I certainly did not realize at that time what BCYC would come to mean to us, and what we would receive from the club. During our time here we have met the most wonderful and amazing people. The members, new and old, are kind hearted, thoughtful and fun-loving people, sharing a commonality of love for the club, its members, its programs and activities. We are thankful and proud to know each of you. Every member, in your own way, had done things to move this club forward and make it a better place.
So, when things seem tough, just rememberto hang on to what you’ve got. Hang on to BCYC. Don't let it go. It's where you belong and where so many of your friends are! We’ve got a lot of love between us and that surely will continue far into the future.
We would also like to extend our warmest welcome to our newest member, Beverley Khalil-White. Beverley is a retired junior high school principal who has had many prior contacts with BCYC in the past. Beverley, we all look forward to meeting in the Columbia Room soon, getting to know you and spending time with you. Welcome aboard!
