Meetings and Activities this Fall...
NEW!! Join the Sunshine Committee - see "Club Information"

May 21st Meeting
The May meeting should be an interesting one as we will have a speaker from Metro Crime Prevention of Florida who will speak on, among other topics, ways that people can learn to be proactive against crime and the simple precautions that can be taken to enhance personal safety. After what promises to be an informative presentation, you will enjoy an "ice cream social" with the scrumptious frozen custard of Ollie's! You will enjoy the May meeting, I'm sure! (If you wish to bring snackies to share at your table, you are welcome to do so). As always, BYOB (coffee and tea will be available). Please wear your Club badges and plan on buying those 50/50 tickets!
In an effort to ensure the evening goes as smoothly as possible, no NEW registrations or RENEWALS will be taken at the May Meeting. We hope that if anyone does come in new, you will greet them and make them feel welcome so that they can feel excited about joining up during the next Club year starting in September, 2014!

The Club meets on the third Wednesday of the month (September through May). Dues for 2013/2014 remain at $5.00. Please wear your Club badges to all meetings.
Please bring a canned or packaged non-perishable food donation for the Food Bank.

See you all in the Fall!!

Club Meetings meet from September to APRIL??
The May meetings are historically sparse in attendance due to the high number of our membership being seasonal. At the April meeting, I posed the question about considering changing the Club By-laws to reflect a Club Year of 8 months instead of 9. For those of you not present at that meeting - What are your thoughts????

Club Membership has increased dramatically over the past few years and we THANK YOU for your support of our efforts and for helping to "spread the word" about the Club. Will you continue to do so by encouraging your Massachusetts friends who are not now members to join and be a part of our Club events?
