THANK YOU to those who paid their dues.  The dues help us pay our heat, lights, and insurance.  THANKS: JR Ringley & Arron English for plowing our parking lot for Euchre, Betty Gniech & John Decriscio for chairing Winter Euchre, and The Updykes for the donation of silverware and paper products.

From the President….As I write this we are having a warm spell and most of the snow is melted.  I am hoping it’s the last of the snow til next winter, but I have lived in Michigan all my life, and know I am probably going to see a little more before Spring finally gets here!  The Booster Club is gearing up for our breakfasts and many dinners this Spring and Summer.  I hope you all will come out and support the club for these.  We are planning a bake sale in May and a yard sale in July.  Please check the calendar in the back of this newsletter for dates and times!  Trap will be starting up Thursdays in June.  As you can see, we have a lot of things planned for the upcoming months.  Because you are getting this newsletter I know you support this club.  We are always in need of volunteers to help run these events; from set-up to tear down it takes a lot of people to do this.  Some of the same people have been volunteering to help for many years, it sure would be nice to see some new faces for this!  If you are interested please let a board member know.  ALSO, please remember we have a beautiful new clubhouse, it is available to rent for baby showers, bridal showers, parties, family reunions, etc.  It is one of the cheapest in the area.  In a nutshell, hoping you will get out to some or all of the events we have planned this year.  THIS IS YOUR CLUB!!!    Happy Spring!  Carol

We are still accepting dues for the 2016 year. You may mail them to the PO Box above or pay at a breakfast or dinner.  They are $20 per person.  Thank You!

Euchre Note: We have extended our Winter Euchre on Tues. nights for 2 wks in May to make up for the 2 snow days we had. We will have our Potluck Dinner Party on May 3 and the last night of the Winter Euchre will be May 10. It doesn’t matter if you have played earlier in the year or not.  Everyone is welcome and euchre is open to the public.

We have decided to have euchre during the summer months.  It will start Tues., May 17th and go through August 30th.  This is open to the public so bring your friends and neighbors. You may attend as many weeks as you want, there is no obligation to be there each week. The Summer Euchre will be having a Pot Luck Dinner the last Tues. of May, June, July, and August.  The Pot Luck is open to anyone who wants to come and bring a dish to pass.  We will eat at 6:00 and cards start at 7:00.  Hope to see you there!
