Secretary’s Letter –
Since our last newsletter, we have had two member pass away – Terry Herron and
We will be installing 95 new members to the club at the May
general meeting. There are 41 family members and 54 non-family members.
There are some Gold card members that have not paid your $5.00 yearly fee some
have not paid for 2-3 years. If you have not paid your name is no longer
in the ben for the nightly drawing, when you pay it will be put back in for the
drawings. Your name is posted on the bulletin board telling you how many years
you owe for. Leave the correct amount of money in a envelope behind the bar and
I will make sure it is taken care of, thank you Gary Schoester Secretary.
It was brought to the board’s attention that children were
playing out on the deck and opening the gate to the parking lot to go in and
out of the deck area. This is a safety issue. Please be aware of
what your children are doing and if they are out on the deck, you should be
there with them.
We have a number of events coming up in the coming
months. One of the main events is May 12th – clean-up day. We need
the help of as many members as possible for 3-4 hours that day. In the
past it seems that only about 12 – 16 members out of 800 come to help.
Even if you can only come for an hour or so this would be greatly
appreciated. Clean up will start at 8 am. Thanks in advance for
June 9th is Members Appreciation Day. You will receive
5 raffle tickets to sell or buy. The cost is 5 tickets for $20.00 or
$5.00 per ticket. This is our only fund raiser for the year so please
take the time to either sell or buy the tickets. We would like to have a
great return on number of tickets sold. Appreciation Day will be a pig
roast with all the trimmings plus a magic show in the afternoon. There
will be door prizes and an acoustic band will play at 6 pm.

I would like to remind everyone if you have changed your
cell number or cancelled your home line and that is the number I have on record
would you please give me your new number. I have tried to contact some members
and all I get is a disconnected number. Thank you.
I would like to thank all the members that have helped over
the past year with the steak fry on Thursday night, Saturday lunches, Tuesday
Wing nights, Sunday Breakfast and our Monday pasta night. Without your
help, these events would not be a success. Thank you.
Gary Schoester, Secretary
