Meeting Agenda For September 2017

September 5 - Klassic Specialties

(562) 865-2988

Here is your opportunity to order a back-up set of ink cartridges. Don’t they always run out just when you have something you really want to finish? Call Don Baker the above number and he will bring them with him. Don is one of our long-time friends who appreciate what we do in our clubs.

A big welcome this evening to Don and Kay Baker! They are the owner’s of Klassic Specialties and most of you know them well. The ink market has undergone a lot of changes since Don’s last visit so he will be bringing us up to date on what we need to know.

An interesting note: Don remembers TUGNET as the first club he spoke to many years ago. I believe that visit was in December of 2002. He was always a supporter of the Southwest Conference as well.

As one of our favored presenters, do bring any ink or paper questions you may have. In fact, if you think of something, jot it down now and remember to bring that piece of paper with you. Or remember that it’s a note in your phone. Sometimes it’s hard to remember a question when the time comes and worse when you think of it when you get home! Don is very willing to answer and discuss all the questions that come up.

I hope you notice the Klassic Specialties ad in our newsletter every month. It mentions a discount that Don has honored all these years. If you don’t have an extra set of cartridges on hand, this is a perfect time to get them. Ink always seems to run out when you have a deadline to meet or are trying to finish an important project. Call (562) 865-2988 and they will bring what you need with them - with no shipping charge. Just be prepared with your printer brand and model number.

September 12 - Board Meeting

The second Tuesday of each month is our TUGNET board meeting. In case you aren’t aware of it, our board meetings are open to all members. So if there is something on your mind, an idea you’d like to introduce, or a gripe (gosh, I hope not), you are welcome to come share it with us.

We meet for dinner at 6:00 p.m., meeting begins at 7:00, in the conference room of the Horseless Carriage Restaurant, Galpin Ford, 15505 Roscoe Blvd., North Hills.

September 19 - Los Angeles County Assessor’s Representative

We will be meeting Carol Quan, a Special Assistant for Public Affairs, Los Angeles Office of the Assessor. Carol will discuss using the Assessor’s and related L. A. County websites to handle your property taxes and much more.

A series of initiatives since 1978’s Proposition 13 has expanded the people who can get a transfer of real property without paying a higher property tax. But a gift to your “significant other,” or perhaps to a grandchild, will probably lead to more property tax due.

Do you know how to avoid future property tax increases when passing on real property to others?

What is a change of ownership?

When will it result in a reassessment of the property and higher (often much higher) property taxes?

These and other questions will be answered.

Whether you are a home owner or renting, the information from this meeting will be of great value.

September 26 - Dining with TUGNET

Dining Fund Raiser at Two Guys from Italy

Two Guys from Italy
16915 San Fernando Mission Blvd
Granada Hills, CA 91344

Here comes the 4th Tuesday of the month, so it is time for us to dine together. Come join other members at the Granada Hill's Two Guys from Italy for our monthly fund raiser. Most get there between 5 & 6 p.m.

I hope, if you haven’t been attending our dinners together, you will try to come this time. The menu is varied with, obviously, the emphasis being on Italian dishes. But there are entree salads to please those who may not want the pasta dinners, as well as sandwiches and soup. They are a generous donor who pays at the end of the evening. Try to come as the number of guests is always an influence as to whether we are invited to return.

This restaurant is in the same building complex as our meeting room on San Fernando Mission Blvd.

It's always enjoyable dining together with friends. This is the easiest and tastiest way for you to help in TUGNET’s fund raising efforts.

Try to come as the number of guests is always an influence as to whether we can return. Looking forward to seeing you!

I think everyone waits expectantly for the night we have our dining together evening. Their menu is such that regardless of your diet limitations, you can find an items that fits your plan and is pleasing as well. So plan to join your friends. Also, it helps our cause if you can invite family members or friends to enjoy the evening with you.

Be sure to pickup a flyer at the meeting, You need to present it when ordering.

Thanks to all who have supported our dining events through the year, it has helped our treasury while you had a pleasant time and filled your tummies. We will continue to keep you informed of the schedule of restaurants in the new year.

Please note: Dining events will be planned for the fourth Tuesday from January on. That will accommodate the board of directors meeting changing to the second Tuesday each month.

There is no easier way that I know of to help our treasury, assuming that we have good participation. If you can invite someone to come with you - or meet you there, wouldn’t that be grand? If we could garner a check for at least $100 each time we have a dining event, with two events we’d have one night of our meeting room rent covered. Now tell me, what’s better than that?

If you have a favorite restaurant you’d like to have included in these plans, let Jefferson Kent know about it. His contact info is on page 3. He is happy to work with any location which welcomes groups. By the way, it is surprising how many restaurants are glad to participate in this sharing program. After all, this brings them customers who otherwise wouldn’t be there!
