A Sure Way to Help Kids Start Life Healthy and Safe


Monday Morning

There were 14 members at our Monday meeting plus two guests. Our guest speaker was Shelly Tidemann plus Key Club Officer, Jacob Kroll. “Happy Bucks” were offered by Chris Serres for her birthday. Marlin reported that meals served at the Pork Fest were down about 260 from last year at 1,355. There were 751 take outs and 604 dine in meals. More results will be reported as all the expenses are tallied. Marlin needs your ticket sales money as soon as possible. Also the Fund Raising Committee will do Pork Recap on October 15th at Faros. All are welcome, just RSVP John Cooper. Sharon Kollman was the winner of the 50/50 raffle drawing and she drew the nine of spades, not a winner. Next Monday’s 50/50 Raffle will have 50 cards in the game including the nine pay cards.
