Win a Classic!
Pres. Phil Bonafide passed around a sign-up sheet (which returned with zero names) for our next roadshow the Steeplegate Mall, Concord, for the Boat Show. This show runs March 8, 9, and 10 so we need a good showing from all of us as we raised $4000 last year. Remember, we all voted to do this major fundraiser.

Pres. Phil Bonafide avoids noticing that Sec.'y Kathy Calvin's extra-long bangs impair her vision.

Diamond Anniversary
Treas. Chet Cilley will pass out a list of potential advertisers for The Citizen supplement for members to chose. If everyone takes a few, this should make an easy job of it.

Write a Letter, Get the Money
Pres. Phil Bonafide reminds everyone that the Laconia Main Street Initiative desperately needs letters of commitment before the March 28 filing date to qualify for one of the available grants. Send your letter to Main St. Initiative, c/o Belknap Mill, Mill Plaza, Laconia, NH 03246. It was also suggested that the club draft a letter pledging our support.

Will They Serve Hot Dogs?
Dianne Roberts needs R.S.V.P's from anyone interested in attending the Laconia Little League's 50th Anniversary Dinner, Pheasant Ridge Country Club, June 22, by March 1. Cost is $30 per person.

Meet the Externs
The Dental Resource Center invites us to meet the new group of Tufts students on Tuesday, February 26.

Thanx, Part 1
The Salvation Army reports that our holiday bell-ringing efforts brought in $296.45.

Thanx, Part 2
Cheshire Smiles sent a thank-you note for contributing the dental instruction kits to the Dental Resource Center and hygienists.

Treas. Chet Cilley turned in $.25 for being tardy.

Happy Dollars
Russ Beane came up with a buck for the Winnipesaukee River Crematorium going four years without losing anyone; and Bob Turner for celebrating his 79th birthday--he also paid by having to listen to the vocally-challenged render Happy Birthday.

Russ Beane claims that it only looks like cement.

Guest Speaker
This writer introduced Sgt. Robert H. Bryant, N.H. Department of Fish and Game to the club. His father was a State Warden for 30 years, rising to the rank of Lieutenant. Bob Bryant has been on the job for 23 years and now is Deputy District Chief for our area. Fish and Game officers enjoy all police powers (except for motor vehicle violations) and must attend the N.H. Police Academy. The slide presentation pointed out that duties change over the course of a year and include enforcement of fishing, trapping, hunting, and OHRV regulations; stocking waters from fish hatcheries; and search and rescue operations including technical rock climbing and dive teams. Go here for more info on the department.
