Win a Classic!
Pres. Phil Bonafide passed around the sign-up sheet once again for our 3-day roadshow at Steeplegate Mall, Concord, March 8-10. Set-up: Don Nelson. Friday, 10a-2p: Michael Bastraw; 12n-2p: Chet Cilley; 2p-6p: Chet Cilley, Larry Murphy, John Grocki, Nate Robertson. Saturday, 10a-2p: Phil Bonafide, Bob Turner, Dianne Roberts, Joe Collie; 2p-6p: Don and Sue Nelson, Jim and Arlene Fortier; 6p-9p: Don and Sue Nelson, Jim and Arlene Fortier. As you can see we have a few thin spots in the line-up and volunteers picking up extra shifts. If you can help out, please do.

Diamond Anniversary
V.P. Larry Murphy has a list of potential advertisers for our Citizen 75th anniversary supplement. As ads need to be turned in by the end of March, we don't have a lot of time to get out and solicit. Rates run from $200 for a full page to $25 for a sixteenth of a page.

RiF It
Chair Joe Adrignola passed around the sign-up one last time before our club's appearance at Elm St. and Pleasant St. Schools on Wednesday, March 6. Volunteers are needed to stamp and distribute books and to read to students. Signed-up at Elm St. from 1p-3p are Joe Adrignola, Nancy Parrott, Nate Robertson, Kathy Calvin, and Chet Cilley; Pleasant St. School, 2p-3p are Don Nelson, John Grocki, Randy Eifert, Joe Collie, and Jackie Bonafide. Our next appearance will be at Woodland Heights School on March 27.

Bike Rodeo
Chair Chet Cilley reminds all that the Bike Rodeo committee will meet after next week's regular meeting.

Guest Speakers
This writer thanked all the members who have arranged program speakers and encourages everyone to chip-in with their suggestions.

It's a challnge to find speakers as funny as our own members.

Sgt.@Arms Nancy Parrott found Scott Beane and Chet Cilley for being late.

Scott Beane again wonders if he should have been a Mason.

Boards Matters
February 4, 2002, the Boards voted to pay dental bills; $2000 budgeted for The Citizen supplement, $250 to sponsor a Little League team; and $600 to sponsor someone to Camp Mayhew.

Happy Birthday
March babies were Past Pres. Jim Fortier, Dan Fisher, and Hon. Member John Bancroft.

Pres. Phil Bonafide would like all members to review the bylaws and suggest any changes they feel would be in the best interests of the club. The bylaws are now online
here or by clicking the links that will appear on all new Kronikle pages.
