2015-2016 Club Year
April 20thMeeting
As always our meeting is held in the Lincoln Room of the Laurel Manor Recreation Center at the corner of Rte. 466 and Buena Vista Blvd at 6:30 PM.

I, and I'm sure all of you, are enormously grateful to the folks who have come forward, willing to serve in Club leadership so that the Club will continue. Thank you! The Elections will take place first, after which we will enjoy a "Night at the Races". You are welcome to dress in your best "Kentucky Derby Finery" as you cheer on your favorite horses! Please bring a roll of quarters with which to place your bets. As always you are asked to support the Club with your 50/50 ticket purchases and for anyone wearing a Club shirt, you will receive 1 free 50/50 ticket for a special drawing. Several volunteers are needed to help with this event: Please let me know ASAP by phone at 352-259-8007 or by e-mail at jkptrixie at comcast dot net if you can help. This will be the last Club meeting until September 21, 2016!!!!!!!!!! If you would like to, you may bring "snackies" to share at your table during the evening..... Coffee and tea will be available

Please remember to bring a food donation to benefit local food pantries.

Sincere thanks to Club member Deb Fitzgerald who has assumed responsibility for the Club Shirts! All Club shirt orders will now go through Deb. When you order a Club shirt at the Meeting, Deb will place the order, and have the shirt available for you at the NEXT Club meeting. Please note that ALL shirt orders must be accompanied by payment. (Checks for shirt orders should be made payable to Custom Apparel & Gifts.)Please visit our website page to see photos of the shirt styles, the Club hats and license plates as well as pricing and ordering information for all of the merchandise. If you have any questions about the shirts, please feel free to contact Deb at debfitzgerald00 at yahoo dot com

There are photos on the website for you to enjoy from the Parade and March meeting. It was a great time! Thank you to the Club members who participated!
Our President's Corner
Dear Baystaters,
Easter and Passover greetings to all! Best wishes to all our Seasonal members who have returned north! We look forward to having you back among us in the next Club Year! A huge THANK YOU to all the Club members who volunteered at the March meeting. All went smoothly because of your efforts!
Can you believe that the last meeting of the 2015-2016 Club year will be on Wednesday, April 20th, 2016 at 6:30 PM in the Lincoln Room of the Laurel Manor Recreation Center??!!?? Where has this year gone??????
Our upcoming April 20th meeting also represents the end of my term as your President.
For me personally, Wednesday the 20th will be a very bittersweet evening!

The date for Club Dues renewal for the 2015-2016 Club year has now passed. THANK YOU to all of you who renewed your Club membership for the 2015-2016 Club year! Your membership is good until September 2016 and then the renewal process for the 2016-2017 Club year will start again!

If you ordered badges and have not as yet picked them up they will be available for pick-up on the night of the 20th. Please wear your Club badges at all meetings.

A new membership list and e-mail distribution reflecting the current roster of renewed members is being developed. (I apologize to those of you who did not renew if you get this note as I am still working on updating the current distribution list. You should not receive any more notifications after this. Thank you for your understanding.) When that process is complete, a determination will be made as to whether we can re-open membership.

If you do not plan on renewing as a Club member and/or no longer wish to receive our Club communications, please, let me know by sending me an e-mail at jkptrixie at comcast dot net and I will remove you from the membership and distribution list. Thank you!

Peace, Joan
