Agenda For September 2017
5 - Klassic Specialties
Here is your opportunity to order a back-up set of ink cartridges.
Dont 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 owners of Klassic Specialties and most
of you know them well. The ink market has undergone a lot
of changes since Dons 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 its a note in your phone.
Sometimes its 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
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 dont 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.
12 - Board Meeting
The second Tuesday of each month is our TUGNET board meeting.
In case you arent aware of it, our board meetings are
open to all members. So if there is something on your mind,
an idea youd 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 Assessors Representative
will be meeting Carol Quan, a Special Assistant for Public
Affairs, Los Angeles Office of the Assessor. Carol will
discuss using the Assessors and related L. A. County
websites to handle your property taxes and much more.
A series of initiatives since 1978s 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.
26 - Dining with TUGNET
Dining Fund Raiser at Two Guys from
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
I hope, if you havent 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.
always enjoyable dining together with friends. This
is the easiest and tastiest way for you to help in TUGNETs
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
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, wouldnt
that be grand? If we could garner a check for at least $100
each time we have a dining event, with two events wed
have one night of our meeting room rent covered. Now tell
me, whats better than that?
If you have a favorite restaurant youd
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 wouldnt be there!
