October 2016

Our thanks go out to Sue Green for getting the ads, having the new placemats printed, and running Summer Euchre. Thanks to the following people: The workers at The Pork Dinner and people who donated desserts; Mike Green and his Trap Shoot crew; The Chicken BBQ workers and the people who donated food; Sandie Mann for cooking and planning our Dinners and Breakfasts; Fred and Tammy Buckner for the donation of paper products; Marlene McGlashen for the paper products donation; the people who played Golf at the Outing, the workers on the course who make it possible, and also the people who were hole sponsors and worked at the dinner. A special thanks to Ken Waryas and Gail White for chairing The Golf Outing.

From the President… Wow, we had a very busy summer at the Boosters Club!  Many Dinners, Breakfasts, a Golf Outing, a Membership Party, Trap every week, and Summer Euchre! Holy Cow!! All of these events are staffed by volunteers.  It took a large number of people to pull all of these events off.  A HUGE THANK YOU to them all!  We are always looking for new volunteers to step forward and help.  We currently need to put together another breakfast crew that would work a breakfast once every 4 months.  We have 3 but need one more. This typically includes 5-8 people. Working a breakfast includes putting out signs for your breakfast, “setting up” for the breakfast, and then actually working the day of the breakfast. Of course, you would get help and teaching and lots of encouragement from current crews!  If you would like to get a little more involved in YOUR club please let a board member know (or call me at 989-588-5017). This is a great opportunity and again it would be only once every 4 months.  Thanks for considering this!

We had a great Member Party.  Thanks to Carol & Gary Maas and Sue & Mike Green for all of their hard work putting it together, also for the donation of the Door Prizes. Thanks to Sandie Mann for the dinner and the people who brought food to share for the potluck.  JR Ringley is our newest Lifetime Member. He was presented with a certificate at the party and his name will be on The Lifetime Wall Plaque. He has contributed so much to the club.  He cooks the eggs for the breakfasts most of the time, keeps our snow plowed in the winter, and helped with the remodeling of the club.  He helps in other ways that are too numerous to mention.  The board had chosen Sandie Mann as our Member of The Year for 2016.  We appreciate all she does to prepare food for all of our events. Her name will be engraved on The Member of The Year Plaque that hangs on our wall.

Early Bird Euchre started Tues., Sept. 6th.  This is open to the public so bring your friends and neighbors.  Doors open at 6pm and cards start at 7.  You are welcome to bring a snack to share at the break.  We will be having our monthly Breakfasts the first Saturday of the month through Dec. from 8-11.  We will be closed for Breakfasts Jan., Feb., and March. We will start Breakfasts again April 1st in the New Year. Our next Fish Fry is Fri., Oct. 14 at 4pm. Come out and support the club.

We are planning our Thanksgiving Baskets for local families.  You may drop off donations of non-perishable food and/or money at Fairchild & Green Realty or The Club, when it is open.  We need your donations to make this project successful.  We will accept donations until November 1, 2016.  Thanks in advance for your help with this project. We use the money for turkeys. We get our names of needy families from The United Way of Clare Co.

Thank You to Tom Krchmar for putting the plastic sheeting on the bathroom wall and on the kitchen wall behind Sandie’s table. Also thanks for donating the materials and your time.  We always appreciate your expert help!

Our next Casino Trip is to Turtle Creek & Leelanau Sands Casinos Tues., October 18. There is a great package only available to bus groups. The cost is $30 per person and you get $20 in Free Slot play plus two $2.00 food vouchers.   Call Betty to reserve your seat on the bus or for more information 989-539-4839.

Gail White has stepped down from the board as Treasure after 6 years.  Marlene McGlashen has volunteered to take her job as Treasurer, as she has previous accounting experience.  The board nominated and voted to have Marlene be the Treasurer for the term 2017-19.  The other board members that had their term expire have chosen to stay on the board.  Therefore, we do not need an election.  Thank you Gail for your many years of service to The Boosters.  You will be missed on the board.
