President’s Message – August 2018

A Note from the President’s Desk . . .

There was a large turn out at last years picnic. It’s such a beautiful spot, good food and great friends. Let’s do it again this year.

In case you are a new member and/or have not attended our summer picnic before, it’s a pot luck with a silent auction following. It’s always a good time to visit with one another and to pickup some good bargains at our auction.

Our youth program is now up and going. The group is called “Young Tumblers.” Our newsletter now has a section just for the kids called “Mini Miner’s.” Help your youngster read and do the activities. So check it out.

We had several members volunteers to help out at our show. We still need a lot more volunteers as it takes 50 to 75 volunteers to cover our show. So far we have about 15 people signed up! We must cover our two entrance tables and we so far do not have enough volunteers for this position.

So remember to volunteer for our show!!!!! Sign up at our August picnic meeting or contact Mark or Kat. Time is getting short – don’t wait until it’s panic time.
