New Year, New Officers

The start of the new year brings new club officers to Ankokas for 2019. Top of the list is the club's new President. We are excited to have Joe Dougherty lead the club this year. Joe and his wife Nancy have been members of Ankokas for a long long time. Joe has some great plans for 2019, so be sure to come out and be a part of them. Vice President this year is Tom McLarney. Tom has been our roster chairman for the past several years and is a Past President from 2006-2007. Jeff Schulte is staying with Ankokas as our Treasurer. Jeff has been keeping track of our finances for many years, and we are glad he is still with us. Our new Secretary for 2019 is Steven Soppe. Steven is our current webmaster, and will also take over the duties of roster chairman. Let's give our new officers your support by attending our next meeting and all of our events this year.

Ankokas 2018 Charter Luncheon

On April 8, 2018, Ankokas held its 54th Annual Charter Luncheon at the Ramblewood Country Club. The luncheon celebrates the anniversary of the founding of Ankokas and brings together all members for a good time of conversation and food. President Kathy Petters announced several club events coming up in the next few months, so be sure to check the Calendar often. A Thank You plaque was presented to club member and sponsor Tom Amendola for his support of Ankokas. The highlight of the day was the presentation of the Frank Hankins Memorial award, presented to the club member who has stood out for their work and support of Ankokas. This year, Diana Antinucci was honored for her work as editor of your Smoke Signals newsletter, she creates the artwork for your website, club photography, and fresh baked cookies at the meetings.

Pictures and audio of our pipe organ tour now posted

Pictures of our tour of the Atlantic City Convention Hall Pipe Organ have now been posted Atlantic City Pipe Organ Tour of the Past Ankokas Events gallery. An audio clip recorded from the free concert after our tour is now posted on our BLOG page. If you missed the tour, you missed a spectacular tour. Every Wednesday at 10:00 am, Boardwalk Hall offers a tour of the building and inside the chambers where the pipes are located. You are actually walking through the organ, not just looking at it. After the tour is a concert that shows just how grand the pipe organ can sound. And it's all free. Yes, FREE, no charge. You really need to take the kids and grand kids to see this. Don't delay.
