First, I would like to thank all of you for your warm welcome wishes since I stepped in the Club as General Manager. I look forward to seeing you often and discussing with you ways to better the Club. Your comments and suggestions are important to us.
I enjoin the Board in its drive to reduce the cost and increase the revenues of the Club. Allow me to share with you my initial plan in order to help the Club achieve long-term sustainability beyond 2025. My focus is to encourage membership usage in Banquet and Sports through new programs that will give members, dependents and their distinguished guests unique and memorable experiences without compromising the Club’s Rules and Regulations on exclusivity and/or privacy. Be assured that we shall continue to implement Rules and Regulations in support to the Club’s vision of becoming a prestigious family-oriented country club.
The new board year marks the start of our special promotions and exciting events. We started with the Oktoberfest on October 14, in partnership with San Miguel Corporation, Halloween Party on October 29 (details of these events will be featured in the next VVCCI Today Issue), Tapas and Wine Buffet on November 19 and Thanksgiving Lunch on November 24. The details of the events in November, including our other new and exciting programs, will be announced through our bulletin boards, website and social networking sites. I suggest that you visit our website, www.valleverdecc.com, often, and like and follow our Facebook, Valle Verde Country Club, Inc. and Twitter, @vvccnewsboard, to always keep you abreast of our latest offerings.
Excited like a child this coming Yuletide Season, we have prepared as early as October, for your convenience, affordable Christmas Hampers. Enclosed in this issue is an order slip form. Avoid the rush; place your orders as early as today. Our Banquet Sales personnel will be very glad to assist you. For more details, you may call the Banquet Sales Hotline at 635-3339.
Lastly, I would like to thank all our partners in the recent Grandparents’ Day, namely Alveo, Sterling Bank, Dra. Tess Mingoy and Manila Hearing Aid. Your support is very much appreciated.
