January 2017

Wow!  Another year has flown by!  The Boosters Club was very busy this year with breakfasts, a Pork Dinner, Fish Dinners, a Chicken BBQ, and a Swiss Steak Dinner.  Euchre has been going great this year with us trying Summer Euchre for the first time.  It was a great success so it is on the calendar again in 2017.

     I want to thank all of the club members for all of their volunteer hours this year.  A special thanks to the breakfast and dinner crews and our kitchen manager, Sandie Mann.  A Big Thank you to Mike and Sue Green for running trap again this year, they do an outstanding job.  Also special thanks to J.R. Ringley for all the snow plowing last winter, for frying fish, and cooking eggs for us.  These are all jobs that are truly appreciated by the board and me.

     Hope you have a wonderful Holiday and a Happy and Healthy New Year!!!  Carol

     Our board officers for 2017 are listed at the top of this newsletter. Please call us with your suggestions, questions, or offer to help with an event.

We have many people to THANK:  The Fish Fry workers, JR for frying the fish, the people who donated desserts, Irv Mann for making the board for JR’s name on the Lifetime Plaque on the wall, Mike Harless for volunteering to learn to cook on the grill so he can work on Betty’s breakfast crew, (we really appreciate his help!), and all of the other people who either worked at an event or donated food.  Thanks to Ron and Ruth Rhoades for finding and picking up the new to us trap machine in Kalkaska.  We could not be successful without all of the help from our members.

Our Thanksgiving Basket Project was a huge success.  Thank you to all of the members who donated money or food.  We were able to provide food for 10 families in the area. Thank you to Carol Maas and Sue Green for chairing the project and Anne Harless and Marlene McGlashen for their help packing the baskets/boxes.

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 2017 donations include: two $400 college scholarships one each to Farwell and Harrison Schools, Lincoln Township Senior Center, Redding Township Children’s Activity Fund, and Thanksgiving Baskets for people in the area.

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.

There will be no breakfasts the months of Jan, Feb, or March, Oct, Nov., and Dec. We will see you April 1, 2017 for breakfast. Winter Euchre starts Tues., Jan 3.  Doors open at 6 with cards starting at 7.  You are welcome to bring a snack to share at the break if you wish. Euchre is open to The Public so please bring your

friends and neighbors. We are planning a Yard Sale the first weekend of July, so save your treasurers for our sale.  The sales have been very successful and a great fund raiser. We would like someone to help with loading the trap machine for trap. If you could help us call Mike 989-854-4902.  We are going to try a new Fund Raiser. Mark your calendars for Nov. 18, because we will have a bake sale at Jay’s.  This is during hunting season, so the store will be real busy. Please help us by donating bake goods. More on this in a later newsletter.
