As the 2015 calendar year comes to an end, we would like to thank all of the friends and families of our rowers who volunteered to make this year such a great success. There are many rowing clubs in this state with larger memberships and much better funding, but none of them hosted three competitive regattas and provided as many programs to our community as we have. We accomplished all of this because of you. I would like to offer a special thanks to Katie and Justin Lednar for their continued commitment to the success of SORA and in particular for their contributions to our very unique adaptive rowing program for the physically disabled. I would like to thank our coaches for training our young athletes to be good rowers and even better human beings. Finally, I would like to thank the kids who love this sport and come to Moss Park eager to learn and train. They are the reason I volunteered to become a board member over 2 years ago and they are what make SORA the great community organization that it is today.
The work of SORA will continue on in 2016 and we will need your help. Please join us at the Annual Meeting of the Membership to be held at 6:30pm on Wednesday, December 9, 2015 at the North Shore at Lake Hart HOA - 9339 North Shore Golf Club Blvd, Orlando, FL 32832. This is the same location that we held the informational meeting in August. We will be addressing some open business items and holding the annual general election for the Board of Directors for the 2016 calendar year.
