October 2, 2020

The newly elected Board Members take the responsibility you have entrusted in each of us, very seriously. We are committed to you, the Membership, and to ensuring that we protect not only the financial stability of the organization, but also that we vigorously defend and uphold the standards and expectations established when the Club was founded. To that end, we have instructed staff to undertake a forensic audit of the Club's finances, in addition to the ongoing review on bookkeeping and the misuse of a credit card by a former employee, as well as the annual Club audit that has begun by our new audit firm, O'Connor Davies. A forensic audit is required to provide the Board important information, but even more importantly, provide you, the Membership, a clear and concrete answer related to this situation. The results of this will be provided to law enforcement to assist in their ongoing investigation.

Further, the Board would remind all members that their actions and behavior must be of the highest standards, as it is ultimately a reflection on the Club itself. Section 5.3 of our Club Bylaws:

"Any member guilty of any misconduct or conduct which is injurious to the character or interests of the Club, or who shall violate the bylaws or established rules, may be expelled or suspended from the Club as directed by the Board of Governors by the affirmative vote of eighty percent (80%) of the full board..."

Rest assured that the Board is firmly committed to honoring these guidelines and should be the Board be made aware of any member who has violated this provision, we will have a zero-tolerance policy. To do otherwise would be counter to the Club's standards and wholly disrespectful to those honoring the standards and guidelines agreed to upon admission. Members should have every ability to comfortably enjoy the amenities of Thornblade whether for business or family activities, and we will not tolerate anything that prohibits or inhibits such.

Sincerely,

The Thornblade Board of Governors
