January 2018

From the president…..I want to wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year!! We have lost a couple of old friends this year, and have gained a few new ones! Thank you to all of the board members who have helped me keep the Boosters going for another year! It takes quite a team to continue to have all of the events we manage, including the breakfasts, the suppers, the yard sale, bake sales, euchre, and more! I encourage all of you to stay as active with the club as you can…if you have never worked a breakfast, or a supper, we always need volunteers! Contact me or any board member and we will make sure you are included as much as you want to be! Thanks for being an active member in this club, and thus in the community! Carol

The Boosters Club had a very successful 2017, thanks to all of your help. Please call any of the officers with your questions and or suggestions. I want to thank Pat Johnson for compiling a brief history of The Boosters Club to present at our Annual Membership Party. I forgot to include her in the last newsletter. She did a nice job of talking to past members and gathering info to share with us about the club. Thanks, Pat.

THANK YOU: Anne Harless for chairing the Thanksgiving Baskets, Carol & Gary Maas for getting the boxes, the basket packers: Carol Maas, Marlene McGlashen , and Barb Harrington; the people who donated money or canned goods for the baskets (we were able to give them to 12 families this year plus a $25 gift card for meat); Pat & Marshall Swanson for the donation of coffee & plates; the people who cleaned the club in Oct.: Sandie Mann, Carol & Gary Maas, Cindy Englehardt, Marlene McGlashen, and Gary & Lorraine Akin; Guy Silva, Pat & Jim Johnson for the donation of playing cards; and the people who donated bake goods for the Bake Sale at Jay’s, Carol Maas for chairing the sale and Marlene McGlashen and Carol for sitting there all day helping to sell the goodies (our profit was over $500, that is one scholarship plus).

Please save your “treasures “for our Annual Yard Sale July 6 & 7, 2018.

OUR MISSION: Our club was formed for the promotion and personal welfare of the area and to assist persons in need, due to illness or catastrophe. Our 2018 donations include: two $400 college scholarships one each to Farwell and Harrison Schools, Lincoln Township Kids Parties, Redding Township Children’s Activity Fund, and Thanksgiving Baskets for people in the area.

Winter Euchre starts Tues., Jan 2. Doors open at 6 with cards starting at 7. It is open to the public so bring your friends and neighbors for a night out. You are welcome to bring a snack to share at the break. We will start collecting dues if you want to pay them. Our Breakfasts start April 7, 2018 and go through Sept. 1, 2018.

We are sad to report that John Decriscio, Betty Gniech’s friend, passed away Nov. 30, 2017. John enjoyed playing euchre with us.

It is dues time. They are $20 per person. You may mail them to the PO Box above or pay at euchre. Thank you in advance for supporting our club. The form at the end of the newsletter is for changes in address or if you want to give us your email address if we do not already have it.

We need volunteers to work the June and September Breakfasts, because we only have two Breakfasts Crews now. We will have a signup sheet for this. We would like to thank Betty Gniech for her years of leading a Breakfast crew.
