We only had 7 members and Lt. Governor Joan Pinch at Monday’s tour of Brooke Industries. Gary Miller did an awesome job brining donuts, assorted juices and coffee was provided by the folks at Brooke Industries. There was no 50/50 Raffle drawing on Monday. Next week’s drawing will have 32 cards with five pay cards and a pot of at least $249.
