Pres. Larry Murphy reports we received a thank-you note from Community Health & Hospice for a recent donation.

Paying It Forward
V.P. Warren Mitchell proposed that we vote $25,000 towards next year's motorcycle raffle. The motion was made, seconded, discussed, and passed unanimously.

Chair Warren Mitchell will call everyone who plans on going to Berlin scheduled for Tuesday, July 22 in case of rain cancellation. If the trip is canceled, the raindate is Tuesday, July 29.

Sgt.-at-Arms Nancy Parrott found Russ Beane and Randy Eifert pinless and Chet Cilley late.

Happy Dollars
Jim Fortier paid a buck for winning the above; Warren Mitchell for getting the replacement banner; and Steve Loughlin for surviving a deer-hit on his car.

You should see the deer...
