We had 18 members at our Monday meeting for the second week in a row. Also joining us was Sue Grich, guest speaker from Brooke Industries. Happy Bucks were offered by Harry Schneider for the huge Packer win against Dallas and by Bonnie Baerwald for her recent appointment as interim President at MPTC. Bonnie was appreciative of all of the favorable comments from Club Members and community friends. John Cooper was the 50/50 Raffle winner this week and he drew the Ace of Spades, another non-winner. Next week’s drawing will have 42 cards with eight pay cards and a pot of at least $130.
