September 6th Meeting Notes
There was no guest speaker today, as we spent the majority of the meeting,
discussing last minute “to do’s” for the Best & the Wurst on Saturday.
Helen B. announced that there had been $8,000 worth of sales for this
event - WOW! The food is in place, as are the beer, non-alcoholic drinks
and snacks. There were last minute adjustments to the assignment list and
the shirts have arrived for us to proudly wear at the event ($32 each).
Our friend Al from the Yorktown Lions spoke to us about reviving the
Hole in One contest with our club and the Lions club coordinating the
event. This will be discussed by the Board.
