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.

Meeting Announcements

  • I am very proud of our Junior Tumbler’s. Alex Danneman, Isaiah Fu, Isabel Viejo, Alexa Viejo will have display cases at our Show. They each will be working on badges.

This is the 2nd year for Alex and Isaiah and the first time for Isabel and Alexa. I am looking forward to seeing each of their cases.

We also have a section of our monthly newsletter for them only to earn Rock Bucks. Rock Bucks can be spent on the monthly raffle or the club auctions we have throughout the year. The website and newsletter now has your own section. Be sure to look at to see what’s new this month and any announcements.
