With the upcoming election, this will be my last message as President. I want to thank members for giving me the opportunity to serve. Looking back on the eight and a half years that I have enjoyed participation in PCMSC club activities, I can’t help but think about the wonderful experiences I have had here in the mountains. Alpine and nordic skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, and bicycling have all enriched my life more than I would have ever guessed coming from the flat lands of Chicago where none of these activities were part of my daily life. Even more gratifying for me however, has been the clubs service as a catalyst for meeting Park City natives, ski and hiking enthusiasts, and fascinating transplants from all across the United States and around the world. I am so happy and proud to call PCMSC members my friends!
As PCMSC approaches its 25th Anniversary, I encourage all members to actively participate in social and recreational activities. Take time to contribute as an event leader, support, encourage and thank those who already are leading. Don’t forget, it has been said that volunteering makes you healthier by improving your moods and emotions, like optimism and joy, and strengthens the immune system. So get healthy and have some fun together with fellow PCMSC members!!

Jeri Brooke
