Win a Classic!
Pres. Phil Bonafide sent out the sign-up sheets once again and it looks like Sr. Member Bob Turner won't be the only one signed up for our next roadshow opportunities at the Steeplegate Mall on Saturday, April 6, from 9a-4p; and the WLKZ Home Show, Winnipesaukee Expo Center, April 13/14, 9a-6p. Joining Bob Turner at Steeplegate are Don Nelson (9a set-up); Dan Fisher, John Grocki, and Phil Bonafide or Don Nelson (10a-1p); Kathy and Patty Jeanne Calvin, Larry Murphy and friend (1p-4p); and Nancy Parrott (1:45p-4p). There are still many openings for the Expo Center. Omitted from the list of workers from our last appearance at Steeplegate was Joe F. Adrignola. Steve Loughlin turned over $1235 from the crew at Laconia Savings Bank.

Nominating Committee
Pres. Phil Bonafide formed a nominating committee for next year's officers chaired by Michael Bastraw and including Steve Loughlin, Dick Breton, Nancy Williams, Warren Mitchell, and Don Nelson. Members interested in any upcoming offices should contact someone on the committee which will meet next week after the regular meeting.

Diamond Anniversary
Treas. Chet Cilley has more assignments for members to contact past sponsors for our 75th anniversary Citizen supplement. Give him a call if you have no one to contact. It's our job to contact those sponsors we only visit once every five years and ask for their support. When the ads are turned in, they should include a contact person as well as all ingredients. Also articles for the supplement should be turned in before the end of the month; the sooner the better and electronically if possible.

Bike Rodeo
Chair Chet Cilley met with the Safety Day committee last week and will be asking the Boards for money to run the event.

Survey Says...
Catherine Contigiani passed out the results of the meals survey we filled out a few weeks back. Big winners were tossed garden salad, sandwiches, onion soup, lasagna, ziti with sauce, stuffed and grilled chicken, turkey, scalloped and red skin potatoes, broccoli(!), pies, and ice cream. Least favorites included: cole slaw, chili, macaroni and cheese, chinese pie, carrots, peas, and jello. Our meal rates have increased by $.25.

Winning Tickets?
The Keene club has sent us two $20 tickets to a raffle similar to our old 120 Club which is drawn over several weeks with the chance of winning more than once.

Boards Matters
Last month the Boards voted $60 for dental bills; $1350 to support two local students in the HOBY program; $250 towards the Laconia Lacrosse Club; $1000 towards the Main Street project; $1000 for July 4 fireworks; a dozen helmets to Woodland Heights Elementary School's Health and Wellness Fair; and the meal cost increase.

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.
