Win a Classic!
Pres. Phil Bonafide passed out sign-up sheets for our next two shows. Next up is our furthest trip: Connecticut Expo Center, Hartford, January 5 and 6. Last year's crew (very similar to this year's) brought in $4065. On board are Don and Sue Nelson, Jim and Arline Fortier, Dan Fisher, John Grocki, and Nate Robertson. Another big show follows on January 12 and 13 at the Shriners' Auditorium, Wilmington, Mass. We need three for the set-up and five for each of the shifts: Saturday 10a-2p, 2p-Close; Sunday 10a-1:30p, 1:30p-Close. If these time slots don't work for you, make your own. The list hasn't picked up too many volunteers yet, which is a shame, as last year this show took in over $6500. All who voted to get behind this year's raffle--get behind this year's raffle. And don't forget about private sales. Get you tickets and get 'em out there. Sr. Member Bob Turner has just sent 20 to Ohio. Point-of-purchase displays are in the works.

So many shifts, so few names...

That'll Buy a Lot of Toothpaste
Sr. Member Dick Breton reports that the Dental Program has received an anonymous $1000 donation.

What's Going On?
Past Pres. Nancy Williams advises that her committee is looking into a golf tournament for this year. Pres. Phil Bonafide would like all members to think about other fundraisers we may add to the mix and for all committees to put together proposals.

Nancy Parrott, $12

The 50/50 drawing holds little attraction for Joe Collie as he hopefully tracks down a wayward morsel of lasagna.

Happy Birthday
