June 2016

We would like to announce our 2016 Scholarship Winners:  Farwell High School:  Clayton Forfinski, and Harrison High School: Jessica Scherrer. They each were given $400. Thanks to the committee who chose them: Gail White, Carol Maas, and Betty Gniech.

Thank you to the people who worked at the Swiss Steak Dinner and those who donated desserts.  Our dinner was very successful and all who came enjoyed a great meal! Thanks to Marlene McGlashen for the paper products donation.  Thanks to Mike & Sue Green and Gary & Carol Maas for donating the beverages for the Euchre Potluck, and Betty Gniech & Martha Neaher for all of their help with the casino trip.

From the President:  By now Spring has finally come to stay! (hopefully!) There’s tons of things to do this Spring and Summer to support your Boosters Club.  Check out the Calendar of Events included in this Newsletter.  Start saving your “goodies” as you do your Spring Cleaning and donate them for our yard sale, it will help insure a successful sale!  Since our Winter Euchre was so much fun (and a good money maker for the club), we have decided to try it through the summer.  So, if you like to play Euchre (or want to learn) come on and join us on Tues. evenings.  Doors open at 6, cards start at 7.  Bring a friend or 2, this is open to the public!   Remember, this is YOUR club….support it!  Have a wonderful Summer!  Carol

You may attend as many weeks as you want, there is no obligation to be there each week.

On a sad note, Ed Pavliscak, a longtime member passed away at the end of April.  Our condolences to his family.  He lived at Lily Lake and helped us with one of our raffles years ago.
