Our Vice President's Corner
Urgent request for Volunteer Secretary
Finally, as President, Bob Conway announced at the last meeting our friend and secretary, Fran Sabbag, is having health issues and has asked that I find someone to take over for her. This position would probably take 2 hrs. a month. Fran would always help me reconcile any ticket sales, dues collected, and submit a short article to the REC NEWS once a month. If you are a detailed oriented person and would like to help us keep the MA Baystaters organization going strong I urge you to contact me at btrigilio at yahoo dot com.
We all offer our sincere thanks to Fran for her long time service as our Club Secretary. Your talents and service are greatly appreciated. Best wishes and good health to you.

Dues for this year are being accepted until Jan. 31st, 2018. It is greatly appreciated if you renew by mail to my address, which you all have, please enclose a SASE and I will mail your stickers back. NOTE!!!! Dues ARE NOT GOING UP UNTIL NEXT YEAR (2018/2019). ALSO, per the rec. department we can not open our doors until 6 PM, the meetings start at 6:30. Thanks! Betsey Trigilio, VP.

As we all know we did dodge a bullet when Hurricane Irma hit the Villages but many still have no power or flooding for days. The area food pantries are completely out of EVERYTHING since they donated food to those in shelters and those who had no power and no safe food to eat. We really need everyone's help this month to bring as much as you can of non-perishable items, canned goods, paper products, soaps etc.

I still need volunteers to assist me with ticket sales, raffle sales and greeters. Please let me know if you are able to assist.

For the 2017 - 2018 season, we are playing at El Santiago Bocce Courts, beginning on the first Friday in October (October 6th) through mid-April. We are looking for NEW PLAYERS !! Contact Bob Goodrich at 352-255-1730.
