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.

Our President's Corner
Dear Baystaters....
Wow! Has this Club Year gone by fast or what???? We have only 2 meetings left! A huge THANK YOU to all the Club members (and guests) who volunteered at the March meeting to decorate the hall, greet the attendees, help with the tickets and with the food distribution. Thank you also, to all of you who attended, for your gracious acceptance of the Hall layout due to the huge number of attendees. It was a little tight but we all managed to "eat, dance, and be merry" despite the limitations! The Hall looked great and the meeting went smoothly thanks to all of you!
Leo Steffen, our entertainer for the evening asked me to ask you that if any of you have any photos from the March meeting and would be willing to share them, it would be appreciated. If you have any, you can just e-mail them to me and I will be glad to forward them on to Leo.
