2017 Executive Board: The 2017 Executive Board was installed at our December 7, 2016, General Meeting and Brunch. Outgoing President Susan Meer introduced the 2017 Officers: president Denise Fleshner; vice president Judy Thompson; treasurer Rachel Enloe; and secretary Nancy Heberling. Thank you ladies for accepting these positions and we look forward to your leadership and a great year of golf in 2017.

Thank You Outgoing Officers! Many thanks to Susan Meer for serving as our President during 2016 and Vice President in 2015. Susan has now passed the “President’s Gavel” to Denise Fleshner. We thank Susan for her strong leadership, giving unselfishly of her time, her solid opinions, and great judgment in guiding our league. Susan had the extra duties of managing the transition of league play this summer from Ironwood to Oakwood with the closing of the Ironwood Course for renovation. Susan, you did a wonderful job and our IWLN benefited greatly from your knowledge and experience. Many thanks go Marcia Gaudioso who stepped down from the Secretary position which she held from 2012 to 2016. Marcia gave countless hours of her time to the league serving in many positions since joining in 2007: president 2008 and 2009, charity invitational co-chair in 2010, and orientation chair 2010 to 2016. We also thank Linda Liberti for her tenure as Treasurer in 2015 and 2016. Linda continues with her standing committee pairings position. Ladies, please accept our most heartfelt thanks for all you contributed to making our Ironwood Ladies Niners a wonderful league.
