Congratulations PCoB members! You have made this another very successful year for the Bayfield calendar (10th as a Lions calendar and 12th altogether when you add the two we did with the BACC) by providing what I believe are the best calendar submission photos yet. The triage was very difficult but you assisted us with that as well since it was your votes that determined the short list that went to the Lions for their final selection.
The winners this year are: Suzan Johnson, Patricia McDougall, Jane Seifried, Jack Pal, Barbara Durand, Vreni Beeler, Conrad Kuiper, and Sandy Herbison. Congratulations.
I have posted all the 13 photos below for your viewing pleasure. For those fortunate enough to have their photo selected, you will receive a 10x15 print in addition to your free PCoB membership for 2022. Additional prints may be purchased for $20 each.
In addition to the fee for service that we receive annually from the Lions, we also receive 50 calendars which we can sell to our own members. At this year's cost of $20, if we sell all calendars, this adds a further $1000 to our bottom line. The calendar continues to be our main source of revenue and allows us to provide more great speakers and subsidize photo excursions and activities (when COVID restrictions lift) while keeping membership fees to an affordable $50 annually.
The theme for the 2023 calendar has not been established yet and the PCoB executive would welcome your input. We expect to announce the theme no later than Thanksgiving. By continuing to provide excellent calendar photos year after year, you will help assure that the financial base of the PCoB will remain secure well into the future.
