Re: OT: Breathing New Life Into An Old Club

Amen, Anner!

"been there, done that."

From some conversations with fellow members and other club
over the years, some groups eeem to fall into the iris club meetings are
gatherings with irises as an excuse rather than an iris function with the
added bonus
of seeing friends. Changing the direction of the status quo is sometimes a
very fine line
to balance. If you push to change the focus too softly or slowly,you effect
no change
and end up being part of the old guard. Yet, if you push too quickly or
firmly you risk
disintegrating the group. As a former club president I tried the 4 year
plan. The group is
now largely defunct.
