I am sorry that it was necessary to cancel our January 13th meeting. HOWEVER, it has been RESCHEDULED for January 20, same time, same place, same WHITE REINDEER event, so I am hoping that our weather will cooperate by the weekend! I also understand if you are unable to be there due to previous scheduling conflicts. Stay safe, warm, and have a great week.
Golden Corral is setting up for 80 Santas.
So far, we have not had to RSVP for this meeting, but they have extra staff coming in to take care of us and preparing extra food.
So say a prayer that the snow does not come like it did for our last meeting and the roads are clear. Looking forward to seeing as many as possible.
Regarding our rescheduled January meeting, it will be at noon on January 20, at GOLDEN CORRAL WEST DUBLIN GRANVILLE,
3710 West Dublin Granville Rd, Columbus, OH 43235. Phone: 614-799-9579, and to repeat,
ALL are welcome, old and young, former and new members, guests and families.
As for an agenda, or TOPIC for this gathering, Mike has suggested that each person have an opportunity (2-5 minutes each) to describe their personal vision for the Buckeye Santas, through this year and for their season upcoming, in order to provide ongoing input and goals for current and future years. This is your chance to redefine the future of our organization. If you cannot make the luncheon meeting but would like to respond, please feel free to send your response directly to Santa@BuckeyeSantas and your input will be shared with the group.
In conversations with individuals it has become obvious that we have a great need for our organization, and this need must be met through the inclusion of all.
We are planning to still have a White Reindeer Gift Exchange at this gathering and encourage all to bring a wrapped 'gift' which will be exchanged for a different gift
whose value should NOT EXCEED $20.00.
To make it as easy as possible,the link to the 2018 Membership Application (single page!) has been posted on the website, very near the top (and also bottom of page).

One is in Word, the other is PDF, and either one should work for you! So, lets get those completed and mailed to

It has been brought to my attention that some members on our mailing list have not received our emailed communications. I will post in this spot the date and general topic of each communication issued from the Webmaster's mailing list:
Jan 14th email RESCHEDULED Mtg
As of Christmas 2017, I had sent out 109+ job requests for Santas. This number does not include all those jobs that were passed off to each other without having gone through the Job Coordinator, nor does that number reflect the number of job possibilities that may exist within that one notice!
If you experienced any difficulties with getting paid for any of those jobs please drop me a note with details.
If you want to be included in the mailings of available Santa jobs, it is incumbent upon you to make sure that your 2018 membership in the Buckeye Santas is updated, current, as required by our governing documents.
Please get ALL your paperwork to our Secretary ASAP!
This will also ensure your photo posting on our Meet Our Members web page. (if we don't have one, please forward your best photo to our webmaster)
Thank you, sincerely, for visiting our web page. Your comments, suggestions,
and complaints will be gladly received at our email address: Santa@BuckeyeSantas.com
