Gilford Old Home Day
Roger Landry needs any promised donations towards our August 24 appearance at Gilford Old Home Day. The sign-up sheet is still a little thin. More help is needed for shifts 12n-3p, 3p-6p, and 6p-9p.

Warren Mitchell reminds us that the next interclub will be to the York club, York Harbor Inn, Thursday, August 15. The crew will leave from A.G. Edwards at 4:30p to make the 7:00p meeting. We have seven on board so far with Pres. Phil Bonafide taking his car if anyone needs a ride.

Sgt.-at-Arms Nancy Parrott found Nancy Williams, Warren Mitchell, Nate Robertson, and Roger Ballantyne pinless.

Special guests, the Wildwood Valley Boys will be arriving on the big bus all the way from Kentucky. Each group will play twice during the festival. Well known for family fun, Castle in the Clouds offers horseback riding, hiking trails and tours of the historic mansion.
