April 2017

From the President…. Hoping Spring has “Sprung” by the time you get this newsletter, but it is Michigan, isn’t it? Hope all you members out there are planning on coming to many of our events this year. If any of you feel like helping out, please call a board member or sign up at a breakfast. The sign up sheet is located on the table where you come in and pay for breakfast. “Many hands make light work” and some of our hands are getting tired! We can always use new faces! This is YOUR club, if you have ideas or suggestions please let me know! Carol

We would like to thank Betty Gniech for running Winter Euchre, and JR Ringley & Aaron English for keeping our parking lot plowed for euchre.

Thank you to the people who paid their dues. We are still accepting dues for $20 per person. You may mail then to the PO Box above or pay at the April 1 breakfast. The Boosters Club can always use donations of paper products. For example: 10” chinet paper plates, paper towel, toilet paper, coffee, heavy duty plastic forks, spoons, and knives. Many thanks to those who have donated these items through the years.

On a sad note, Dude Updyke, a Lifetime Member, passed away 1-27-17. He was 93 years old. His celebration of life will be at The Stocking Funeral Home in Harrison April 22 at noon. The visitation will be from 10-noon before the service. The Boosters will be hosting a dinner after the service. Memorial donations may be made to The Lake George Boosters Club in his name. He will be missed.
