CLUB OUTREACH HITS A NEW HIGH
Our commitment to keep supplying our area food pantry's has reach an all-time high. Some items that they specifically need are: canned tuna, chicken, beans, spaghetti sauce, vegetables, fruit, and soups. They also need kids snack items so that they have a healthy lunch such as, granola bars, cereal bars, fruit snacks, fruit cups, and cheese crackers. ANY DONATIONS are greatly appreciated. See a recent thank you on our web site.
It will be a LONG summer with fewer collections so please bring what you can. Suggestion: If you are closing your house for the season, remember they will accept anything that is not open. Please leave your donations as you enter the Lincoln Room in the right hand corner of the hall. THANKS!
We received a wonderful Thank You Card from Our Mother of Mercy Food Pantry signed by the volunteers can be viewed here.

Our Vice President's Corner
A WORD ABOUT DUES:
WE ARE CHANGING THE RENEWAL DEADLINE TO Dec. 31, 2018 and are raising the dues from $5.00 per year to $10.00. These changes were necessary to avoid confusion during "banquet events" and due to the increased cost of entertainment. We have already booked some of your favorite entertainers for next season and need to secure deposits.
Registration will start again in August 2018.
