HOBY ambassadors Robert Stanley and Zachary Winslow wrote to thank us for supporting the program.

Come to the Island
The Mayhew Program has invited our members to visit Mayhew Island on certain days in July and August to interact with their students. Reservations required.

Let the Bidding End
Pres. Phil Bonafide sent around the sheet one last time for the silent auction for the two tickets ($120 value) to the July 5 Boston Pops event at Meadowbrook that the New Hampshire Music Festival donated. And the winning bid was $80 from Scott Beane.

Warren Mitchell advises nine members are signed up for the trip to the Mt. Washington Valley club on Wednesday, June 19, rain or shine. Members should meet at 4:30 p.m. at A.G. Edwards on Union Ave. near Messer St. The next will be to Berlin on July 16 (raindate July 23). If someone brings a car, pooling may be available.

Chair Nancy Williams has been burning up the email with some of our newer members to develop a strategy to attract younger members. Evidently, with little/no fanfare, Paul Cotton has rejoined our ranks. He particularly endeared himself to this writer by pointing out vocational inaccuracies on the Membership page. Welcome back, indeed.

Steve Loughlin reports that we have received thank-you notes from three of this year's scholarship winners: Kyle Fugate (U.N.H.), Marty O'Riordan (Past Key Club Pres./daughter of their Advisor, Steve), and Jordan Inglis (Stonehill College). Because of $500 carrying over from last year, $3500 was disbursed this year.

Win a Classic!
Pres. Phil Bonafide reports that even with the bad weather, we raised more this Motorcycle Week than last, and for the year as a whole. First Prize-winner Ken "Skip" Stillwell, Mullica Hills, New Jersey, was on hand with his wife, Donna, and kids for the drawing 4:30p Sunday last. After no one took them up on their offer to sell their children to defray the taxes on the Harley, financing was arranged through Meredith Harley and Harley-Davidson. Second Prize went to Diane "Zee" Theriault of Townshend, Mass. Pres. Phil wants everyone to carefully consider their level of commitment to this fundraiser before the club votes at a future date on whether to buy another motorcycle. He is (rightfully) concerned that unless we get more participation, the Usual Suspects will burn out. Past Pres. Nancy Williams will draft a letter to Thurston's Marine for providing parking. They were also given 20 tickets before the drawing. Congratulations to all of us for breaking the bank. Thanx to photogs Steve Loughlin and Randy Eifert for documenting the week (and whole year, for that matter). With hundreds of pictures at my disposal, I'll run a few of the better ones over the next few weeks.

19,000 tickets later...it all comes down to this.

While V.P. John Grocki was thrilled to meet his childhood hero, he didn't much care for Captain Kangaroo's new uniform.

Sec.'y Kathy Calvin collected fines for herself and an unnamed co-pinless; and Charlie St. Clair for being late.

Happy Dollars
Dennis Denoncourt kicked in a buck for not getting fined for being pinless; and Ed Chertok for breaking 100 today golfing.

Amending the Bylaws
Pres. Phil Bonafide has added amendments to our club's bylaws solicited from our membership. When the changes have been incorporated into the existing bylaws, it will be available for review online.
