December 17th Christmas Holiday Party
The December 2014 Meeting is our annual Christmas Holiday Party (Here is your invitation!) so there will not be a business meeting. (Before the Party starts, you may still pick up any ordered badges, shirts or other Baystater Club articles you purchased; you may also order your NEW badges and renew your membership if you have not already done so and finally, you may sign up for the January 21st, 2015 SOCK HOP if you are planning on attending). Otherwise, we will all just have the opportunity to socialize, eat and make merry!

Our meal will be catered by Red Sauce and the menu includes garden salad, eggplant parmigiano, chicken francaise, penne with marinara sauce, Italian roasted potatoes, broccoli with olive oil and garlic, Italian bread, rolls, focaccia and butter, apple crisp, iced tea, iced water, hot coffee and tea. The entertainment for this year is "Oldies but Goodies" so there will be great food and lots of good music and dancing.

The December 17th, 2014 event is a Ticketed Event. Tickets are $25.00 Per Person. If you have not as yet made your reservation for our Annual Holiday Party, please make your reservations now by calling Joan at 352-259-8007 or by e-mailing me at jkptrixie at comcast dot net

IF you are wearing a Baystaters Club Shirt at the Club Meetings, you will receive a FREE ticket for a special 50/50 drawing!

Please bring a canned or packaged non-perishable food donation for the Food Bank.

The January 21st 2015 Meeting will be a SOCK HOP and feature the wonderful talents of the Flashback Band and Dawn DiNome. The tickets for that event ($5.00) will be sold at the November and December meetings.

Our President's Corner
Dress for the Christmas Holiday Party is "Holiday casual". It was so lovely to see everyone dressed in their Holiday finery at last year's party....Hmmm... what Holiday fashions will be in style this year!!!!???

Despite efforts to find Club By-Laws, it appears that there are none for the Club so I am asking for 2 or 3 people who would be willing to work with me on a By-Law committee. I have one person who volunteered but would like a couple more so please call 352-259-8007 or email me at jkptrixie at comcast dot net if you would be interested in assisting with this project. Also if anyone has the date the Club actually came into existence, I'd appreciate it if you would pass that info on to me. Thanks!

Club Membership has increased dramatically over the past few years and we THANK YOU for your support of our efforts and for helping to "spread the word" about the Club. Will you continue to do so by encouraging your Massachusetts friends who are not now members to join and be a part of our Club events?
