Message from the President

November was a very positive month for our club. Thanks to Deb Hammond and her volunteers our Soup and Bake Sale on Election Day gave us a profit of $757.00 and thanks to Janet Yanella our pie sale gave us a profit of $676.00. I can see our club recognizing in the future more than one senior with a $750.00 scholarship and helping our community.

On our website is a picture of the toys that you all donated at our November meeting and I wanted to share it with all of you so somewhere in the newspaper you will find it. We filled the box and thank you all for making a child’s Christmas a happy one.

Remember there is no general meeting in December and we will see all of you Monday, January 19th at 7:30 PM. Our speaker will be Mary Beth Long, Librarian at the Red Land Community Library sharing information on "Public Libraries". We would like all members to join the library so make sure you all stop by and sign up or renew. For members who can’t make the meetings and do not have e-mail, Nancy will send you an application with a self-address envelop to return it to me. Our goal is to have 100% so we can be recognized at our district meetings.

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year – 2015!!!! WOW!!!

Judy
