President’s Message – July 2018

Remember our August picnic is coming up. We have reserved our regular location at Lake Wilderness Park on Sunday August 5th or 12th. Check the posting below for further details.

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

We had several members volunteer to help out at our show at the June general meeting. Thank you! We really have a big need for someone to oversee the Raffle and Door Prizes. We have a few helpers already signed up for this area but we really someone to be Chairman and make sure all the bases are covered. Wouldn’t you like to volunteer? I will have the signup sheets at the picnic.

There is no Thursday meeting in August. The picnic takes the place of our regular meeting.

Please think seriously about volunteering. We still need a lot more volunteers/helpers in many positions. So remember to volunteer for our show!!!!! Sign up at our July meeting or contact Mark or Kat.
