Welcome to the Vikings

Past Chief’s Message

Thank you for a wonderful year as your Chief! Vikings members and visitors had a fun packed year thanks to the many members who volunteer their time. The support I felt was one of the reasons I decided to run for 2018 Vice Chief.

Special thanks to the very talented members who decorated the club during the holiday season.

Breakfast with Santa was a huge success this year due to the many volunteers who shopped and wrapped gifts, made and served breakfast, provided the activities and handouts, organized and helped with the morning. It is always exciting to have Santa join us thanks to the Maple Springs Fire Department for helping with his travel since there was no snow!

If you are a member who rarely visited the lake park you missed out on lots of fun! To the new members; please participate in our activities, join us for dinner and most of all become involved by volunteering.

Congratulations to Doug Sanders and all the 2018 elected officers.

See you at the Club,

Past Chief Jane

Chief’s Message

I am pleased to be your chief this year. It is an exciting time for our club as we keep growing stronger. We have gained many new members of all ages and have made positive changes to make our club a great place to relax, enjoy, and share the lake with friends and family. I am looking forward to seeing all the seasoned and new members as they partake in the upcoming activities and park improvements planned for this year. These activities would not be possible without the dedication of the many volunteers who make them happen. In February, I invite you to join me in a refreshing dip in the lake during our annual winterfest and Polar Bear Swim. A special thank you to our Past Chief Jane Fosberg for all her dedication and hard work. The many changes of the past year have made our club a better place, her shoes will be hard to fill.

Happy New Year!

Chief Doug Sanders
