come and help us celebrate the season. This would be a good time to get that interclub in... Please send back a reply so I can have the chef set a place for
you and your group. We'll toast the season and sing a carol or two.

Membership Chair Joe Adrignola needs everyone to complete their list of potential new member prospects and turn them back in. Add your own businesses to the list as necessary and chose which contacts you would like to make.

Out with the Old?
After some lively discussion on whether to continue using aprons as part of the induction ceremony, Pres. Warren Mitchell suggested that it be handled by the Membership Committee. It was also suggested that we have a designated Greeter at each meeting.

Stay Tuned
Sec.'y Kathy Calvin reminded the club that she, Charlie St. Clair, Chet Cilley, Joe Adrignola, and Paul Cotton will be representing the club at the Santa Fund telethon on Tuesday, December 9, 8a-10a.

A Friend in Need...
V.P. Paul Cotton reports that he has been volunteering for the Citizen Santa Fund, handing out clothing and other goods to those in need. Each year they distribute over $100,000-worth of goods. Anyone interested in helping out should just show up at the former Cherry, Webb, & Touraine store on Main St., 2p-6:30p, Monday-Friday and 10a-1p on Saturday.
