Cleveland Wine Club Message Board › Resignation of Organizer

Resignation of Organizer

user 11164561
Louisville, OH
Dear Members and Friends of the Cleveland Wine Club,

It is with a sad heart that I am writing to let you all know that as of September, I am resigning as Organizer of the Cleveland Wine Club. The Napa Valley Adventure next week will be my last official meetup.

As many of you know, I am a single mom of a very energetic 11 year old girl. Juggling the responsibilities of home and a teaching career keeps me very busy during week days and makes it more difficult to find time to negotiate with venues on behalf of the wine club. In addition, many venues welcome our events on school nights when they are not so busy; so, it is becoming more of a challenge for me to attend.

However, I am leaving you in good hands. Cindy Jolley has accepted the position as Organizer. As many of you know, Cindy has been working with me as Co-Organizer and since I took over for Teri about 16 months ago, our membership has more than doubled! Cindy has an excellent track record of negotiating deals for us and she loves doing it! If any of you would like to help her out, please let her know. It takes many people to make a club great, and I believe we have met our goals. We have a great wine club with lots of great members who love good food and wine!

Thanks to everyone who has helped make our club what it is today. I have met some wonderful people and have made many new friends. The education we have received from our wine dinners and flights has been exceptional. I am excited to learn more on our Napa trip, next week. I have come to the conclusion that one can never know too much about wine! I have also learned that great wine is always better when there is someone to share it with!!

I wish you all the best that life has to offer, and look forward to seeing you all at future events!!

Until then, Cheers!!

Caryn Merkel
