April 18th Meeting
This season has flown by, we hope you enjoyed the meetings, banquets and entertainment! This month's entertainment was R U SMARTER THAN A FIFTH GRADER, provided by Bob Lapadot, and we all shared a lot of laughs.

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
WOW, This season flew by. 185 members attended the April meeting, a large crowd for the last meeting of the year! A GREAT time was had by all. I am working hard at booking all of next years entertainers and should be done by next month so come back to the web site I will post it ASAP.!
I am VERY excited to say I have back by popular request, The Mentalist, Mark Stone. He just confirmed the date last night! He will kick off 2019 at our January meeting! I am also happy to say Tim Kelly will provide the entertainment for our St. Pats Party in March!
Now that season is officially over please check your name badges; if it does not have a red number 18 on it, you did not renew your dues. If that was an oversight, you need to contact me immediately as Will Collier and I will be updating the member list, that also generates the monthly notices and you will not be on the list. Contact me at btrigilio51 att gmail dot com. To avoid long lines in the fall, you may mail your 2019 dues to me after August 1st. The dues this year will be $10.00 pp and checks need to be made out to MA BAYSTATERS CLUB. 1635 Orr Terrace, The Villages, 32162. If you enclose a SASE, I will mail the stickers back to you. I want to thank all of my team of volunteers who showed up every month, some as early as 4PM if it was a "set up" night! Without your commitment and help, I could not have pulled off every months meeting! I hope you all have a safe and healthy summer and look forward to seeing you all in September. It has been a pleasure to serve as your Vice President!

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.

A VERY SINCERE thank you to all of our volunteers! Month after month my cup overflowed with people that just "showed up" and said where can I help! THANK YOU ALL!
