Win a Classic!
Pres. Phil Bonafide reports that we took in $1865 Saturday last. This is truly impressive considering that he and V.P. Larry Murphy were the only members there for the whole day. Shame on the rest of us. Sunday, with a bigger crew including Kathy Calvin, Nancy Williams, Nancy Parrott, and Don and Sue Nelson brought in $2022. Not bad for Super Bowl Sunday. The total for the weekend was up from last year's $3515. This puts us at $20,278 gross so far which means all expenses, including the motorcycle, at our next show. Which brings us to Rockingham Park on February 9 and 10. Dick Breton, Warren Mitchell, and Phil Bonafide will do the set-up; Saturday, 9:30a-2:00p: Kathy Calvin, Jim and Arline Fortier, Phil Bonafide, Ed Merski, Steve Loughlin, and Michael Bastraw; 2:00p-6:00p: Kathy Calvin, Jim and Arline Fortier, and Phil Bonafide. Sunday, 9:30a-2:00p: Roger and Pam Landry, Nancy Williams, and Don and Sue Nelson; 2:00p-6:00p: Joe Collie, and Don and Sue Nelson.

Keep That Smile
Sr. member Dick Breton reports the Board voted $1150 to purchase the imprinted Crest toothpaste kits for the elementary schools of Laconia, Gilford, and Belmont. They should arrive before the end of February, National Childrens' Dental Month, and will be passed out by the hygienists through the rest of this school year and into the next.

Berlin Needs Signatures
The Berlin club has sent a petition to have placement of a 4-year college in their area. It made the rounds again and picked up some new names.

Pres. Phil Bonafide notes that Joe Collie has been doing a good job keeping the club's name alive on his radio show. Membership Chair Nancy Williams reminds everyone that we should all "keep thinking" about prospective new members and move to action.

Diamond Anniversary
V.P. Larry Murphy reports that our 75th Anniversary Celebration will be held at Pheasant Ridge Country Club on Saturday, May 18. All interested parties should be notified to save the date. Ad sales information for the Citizen supplement should be decided at the Boards meeting.

Being well-rested is the key to effective leadership.

A rather bizarre tug-of-war

The $5 bill makes it easy for Roger Landry to picture Sr. Member Bob Turner with a beard.

Free Meal
After Steve Loughlin's name was drawn, he declined. Lary Murphy was the beneficiary of the second draw.
