Hello everyone!
Hope you all had a wonderful summer. We are back playing bocce Fridays at 9:30 am at El Santiago courts. Hope to see you there. Thank you, Corinne

As discussed at the September Meeting, as we did last year, we would like the Club to support a Charity. Several suggestions have been made. We will vote on a charity to support at our November meeting.

February 6th, 2016: We are considering entering a MA BAYSTATERS CLUB TEAM for the Rotary Club Chili Cook-Off to be held on February 6th, 2016. All the funds raised by the Chili Cook-Off aid the many charities the Rotary Club supports in our Community. This can be great fun! We will need about 12 volunteers to help with prep and hand out the chili samples on the day of the event, and of course we would look to you to come to the event, and vote for our team!!!!!!!!! Interested?????? Contact Club member Will Collier at wcollier2007 at gmail dot com
Update: so far, we have 7 volunteers - we need MORE HELP to participate in this activity!!
