May 2018

From the President….I am hoping by the time you read this, Spring is here to stay!! Wow! What a long Winter it has been! I want to personally thank J.R. Ringley for doing all of the plowing of the snow this Winter. He does it out of the goodness of his heart, and we greatly appreciate it! Now that our Spring/Summer events are in full swing, I also wanted to give a shout out to Sandie Mann, our Kitchen guru, she makes the meals wonderful! If you have the time to offer to help with a Breakfast, a Fish Fry, a Swiss Steak Dinner, Bake Sale, Yard Sale, and etc. this Spring/Summer, please contact me or one of the board members. We need volunteers!! The people who work at these events get burned out, and new people are greatly appreciated! There is something for everyone to do, and as we know many hands make light work! Thanks for considering this!! Carol

Welcome Spring!! Thank you to all who paid their 2018 dues. We are still collecting them if you would like to pay them at a meal or breakfast. We always accept them by mail also.

We have two breakfast crews. Our third crew is now going to be made up of volunteers. We will have a sign-up sheet on the table by the door for those who would like to help with a breakfast in June 2 or September 1. Thanks ahead of time to those who sign up to help!

Thank you: Betty Gniech for leading a Breakfast Crew for years, (she has decided to step down), and JR Ringley for straightening the pole by the road that got hit by a vehicle, and smoothing the rough parking lot to get rid of the ruts.

The club can always use paper product donations. For example: 10” chinet paper plates, paper towels, toilet paper, and heavy duty plastic forks, spoons and knives.

We are continuing to play euchre each Tues. at 7pm. bring your friends and neighbors for a night out. May 18 at 4pm is our first Fish Fry of the year with take-out available. Come out and enjoy a meal with friends and support the club.

We will need Bake Goods for our May 26 sale in downtown Lake George. You may drop them off between 8:30 and 9:00 in the parking lot beside Fairchild and Green. Do not forget to save your “treasures” for the Annual Yard Sale July 6&7. Check the calendar at the end of the newsletter for time details.

Trap Shooting starts Thurs. June 7 at 6:00pm. This is a new time from the past years. We have had a good group of shooters so come out and join the fun. This helps support the club also.

Thanks to the Scholarship Committee for choosing our 2018 Scholarship Winners. Farwell’s Winner is Taylor Johns and Harrison’s Winner is Erika Cullen. Thanks to Sue Green who will present the awards to the students at their Awards Nights.

Thank you to the members who sent cards, emails, calls, food, and prayers to me after my open heart surgery. I am on the mend and feel better each day. I am doing cardiac rehab three times a week. Lorraine Akin
