Brothers and Sisters:
First off, let me wish everyone a Happy New Year.
The Christmas party was a smash hit. We had a fantastic turnout of over 250. The food was awesome and the hall nicely decorated for the holidays. A special thanks to the executive committee for doing another spectacular job. It takes a lot of time and volunteers to make these parties the success that they are.
Even though we didn't have as many cakes and the money wheel wasn't as popular as past years, a very special thanks to each and every one of you who provided cakes for the cake wheel, bought the 50/50's and basket of cheer tickets, and played the money wheel. We did real good with the collectibles that were donated by a brother and his wife (they wish to remain anonymous).
Congratulations to George Graile for winning the basket of cheer and graciously donating the cart back to the club, and to Judy Greene who won the 50/50 and kindly donated a nice amount back to the club. Thank you.
Congratulations to the following people who won the 3,2,1 Drawing at the general meeting in December:
First prize: Kirk Greaver
Second prize: Robby Robinson
Third prize: Dave White
